  • Ingenious old man invents sign to slow down traffic

  • The question that matters isn’t what you or I think of God, but what does God think about you?

    Here’s a question for you: What is God like? From your gut, how would you characterize him?
    A number of years ago, Baylor University conducted a survey, asking people to choose words that described how they characterized God and his level of anger and also their perceived level of his involvement in the world.
    The researchers concluded that Americans viewed God in four distinct ways:

    Wow, what a crowd we had Sunday for the Omega Force Team! Bro. James counted 98, and what an awesome demonstration they gave as they lifted amounts of weight and carried, drug, pulled and pushed to show the strength that God can give his children to overcome the weaknesses in our lives.
    We all have areas that we need more of God’s help in and the message was loud and clear. Thank you to all who attended and a special thank you to Charrdel Hammond for bringing this message and these men to our church.

  • Kindergartener: I can’t read or write and they won’t let me talk

    A teacher noticed one of her students was lost in a daydream and paying no attention in math class.
    To bring the kid out of his daze, the teacher yelled: “Johnny, what is 4, 8, 26 and 42?
    Little Johnny quickly answered: “NBC, CBS, HBO and the Cartoon Network.”
    That old joke makes me laugh, probably because it reminds me of the late great Art Linkletter’s TV segment that once was so popular: “Kids Say the Darnedest Things.”

  • God’s love fills up all the empty places inside you and gives you enough to give to others

    A number of years ago I got a phone call from a reader with a request.
    He said he was 90 years old and had outlived two wives, yet he wasn’t sure he knew what real love is and he hoped that I could explain it.
    I don’t know if he’s still one of my readers — I haven’t heard from him since that one time. But if he is, here’s my best answer to his question:
    When I was in middle school, I loved red-haired Paul Minardi with all my 13-year-old heart. We passed notes in class and he walked me to homeroom, carrying my books.

  • Steak is better when it hasn’t been dropped on the floor

  • Sabbath is a time of refreshing, which includes worshiping the Lord

    A few weeks ago, my pastor’s sermon made me squirm in my seat.
    We’ve been studying the Old Testament book of Exodus. That’s the book that talks about God rescuing the Israelites from their centuries of slavery in Egypt, all the plagues upon the Egyptians, how Moses parted the Red Sea and fed the Israelites with manna — honey-tasting bread from heaven.
    At one point, Moses meets with God on Mt. Sinai where God gives him two stone tablets with his law written on them.
    God’s law is a gift to his people, my pastor said.

  • Where ‘woe’ means ‘whoa,’ and ‘giddy-up’ means go

    The college professor asked a student in his class, “what is the opposite of joy?”
    “Sadness,” the student responded.
    And, to another student, the professor asked, “what is the opposite of depression?”
    “Elation,” was the reply.
    And to, Bubba, the professor asked, “what is the opposite of woe?”
    “I believe that would be giddy-up,” Bubba answered.
