How About A Cheerful Post?We’re suffocating in many areas of our lives. So here’s a post that will be warm and fuzzy and maybe even bring a chuckle to your stressed life. Be sure to refresh yourself by clicking on any links. Each will be a “feel good” anxiety reliever.
For any too-serious religious uptight person who was baptized in vinegar and thinks it is wrong to enjoy life ~ the Apostle Peter finishes this post.
Years ago a dedicated, religious man decided to become a monk. So he contacted some monasteries and finally was welcomed into a very strange one. The chief monk showed him around and then told him the strict guidelines if he wanted to join and remain with them.
“You must take a vow to only speak once every 10 years and on that day you may only say 2 words. No exceptions or you’ll be kicked out." He joined.
At the 10-year mark the Chief Monk called him in. “What do you have to say?" he asked.
At the 20-year mark the Chief Monk called him in. “What do you have to say?"
At the 30-year mark the Chief Monk called him in. “What do you have to say?"
We got married last Friday.
My girl was there right beside me.
Our friends were all gone.
We were alone, side by side.
We were so happily wed when she got ready for bed then
Her teeth and her hair she placed in a chair, side by side.
One glass eye, so tiny. One hearing aid so small.
Then she took one leg off and placed it on the chair by the wall.
I stood there brokenhearted.
Most of my girl had departed.
I slept on the chair
There was more of her there.
Side by side." **
“You never saw him, yet you love him. You still don’t see him, yet you trust him—with laughter and singing. Because you kept on believing, you’ll get what you’re looking forward to: total salvation.” (1 Peter 1:8, MSG)
