More Fun Friday chuckles thanks to Gill Garden! HYSTERICAL ANSWERS

The Greeks were a highly sculptured people, and without them we wouldn’t have history.

The Greeks also had myths. A myth is a female moth.

Actually, Homer was not written by Homer, but by another man with the same name.

Socrates was a famous Greek teacher who went around giving people advice. They killed him. Socrates died from an overdose of wedlock. After his death, his career suffered a dramatic decline.

In the Olympic Games, Greeks ran races, jumped, hurled the biscuits, and threw the Java.

Eventually, the Romans conquered the Greeks. History calls people Romans because they never stayed in one place for very long.

Almighty God, creator and upholder of all things, take from our hearts that hatred which judges others by the colour of their skin and condemns others for the class of their families, so that love may rule and justice prevail to the benefit of all; for Christ’s sake. Amen.

CLICK BELOW FOR CHRIST IS RISEN.

AN EASTER ALLELUJAH.

Dear sisters and brothers in the Crucified and Risen Lord,

Christ is risen! He is risen indeed!

This day has dawned like so many before it and as so many that are to come. And yet we greet it with renewed joy in the resurrected One.

Our Easter message in each of our particular contexts will include that of sharing one another`s burdens so that we work through the current pandemic together, affirming that the life of integrity, courage and compassion is never wasted or lost. What is done for the good of others has a way of rising and returning to gather all to rise again. Neither disease nor death, fear or uncertainty can finally overcome the best in human solidarity and resilience. 

It is in this spirit that I wish you all a blessed Eastertide.

Rev Tony Bell our locum at St Phillip and St James has once again recorded a short Act of Worship

https://youtu.be/_4oilYyyqhg

I did not write this – but It does speak to my heart. I hope it will speak to yours too! Barely the day started and… it’s already six in the evening. Barely arrived on Monday and it’s already Friday. … and the month is already over. … and the year is almost over. … and already 40, 50 or 60 years of our lives have passed. … and we realize that we lost our parents, friends. and we realize it’s too late to go back… So… Let’s try, despite everything, to enjoy the remaining time… Let’s keep looking for activities that we like… Let’s put some color in our grey… Let’s smile at the little things in life that put balm in our hearts. And despite everything, we must continue to enjoy with serenity this time we have left. Let’s try to eliminate the afters… I’m doing it after… I’ll say after… I’ll think about it after… I’ll pray about that after… We leave everything for later like ′′ after ′′ is ours. Because what we don’t understand is that: Afterwards, the coffee gets cold… afterwards, priorities change… Afterwards, the charm is broken… afterwards, health passes… Afterwards, the kids grow up… Afterwards parents get old… Afterwards, promises are forgotten… afterwards, the day becomes the night… afterwards life ends… And then it’s often too late…. So… Let’s leave nothing for later… Because still waiting see you later, we can lose the best moments, the best experiences, best friends, the best family… best moments with God. The day is today… The moment is now… We are no longer at the age where we can afford to postpone what needs to be done right away. So stop procrastinating and do it now. Life is too short

FUN FRIDAY and thanks to Sandra Holloway for this blast from the past!

We were all ‘Home Schooled’ whether we realized it at the time or not… Most of us over 50’s were Home Schooled in many ways… My mother taught me TO APPRECIATE A JOB WELL DONE. “If you’re going to kill each other, do it outside. I just finished cleaning.”

My mother taught me RELIGION. “You better pray that will come out of the carpet.”

My father taught me about TIME TRAVEL “If you don’t straighten up, I’m going to knock you into the middle of next week!”

My father taught me LOGIC “Because I said so, that’s why My mother taught me MORE LOGIC “If you fall out of that swing and break your neck, you’re not going to the shops with me.”

My mother taught me FORESIGHT Make sure you wear clean underwear, in case you’re in an accident.”

My father taught me IRONY “Keep crying and I’ll give you something to cry about.”

My mother taught me about the science of OSMOSIS “Shut your mouth and eat your supper.”

My mother taught me about CONTORTIONISM “Just you look at that dirt on the back of your neck!”

My mother taught me about STAMINA “You’ll sit there until all that spinach is gone.”

My mother taught me about WEATHER “This room of yours looks as if a tornado went through it.”

My mother taught me about HYPOCRISY “If I told you once, I’ve told you a million times, don’t exaggerate!”

My father taught me the CIRCLE OF LIFE “I brought you into this world, and I can take you out.”

My mother taught me about BEHAVIOR MODIFICATION “Stop acting like your father!”

My mother taught me about ENVY “There are millions of less fortunate children in this world who don’t have wonderful parents like you do.”

My mother taught me about ANTICIPATION “Just wait until we get home.”

My mother taught me about RECEIVING “You are going to get it from your father when he gets home!”

My mother taught me MEDICAL SCIENCE “If you don’t stop crossing your eyes, they are going to get stuck that way.”

My mother taught me ESP “Put your sweater on; don’t you think I know when you are cold?”

My father taught me HUMOR “When that lawn mower cuts off your toes, don’t come running to me.”

My mother taught me HOW TO BECOME AN ADULT “If you don’t eat your vegetables, you’ll never grow up.”

My mother taught me GENETICS “You’re just like your father.”

My mother taught me about my ROOTS “Shut that door behind you. Do you think you were born in a barn?”

My mother taught me WISDOM “When you get to be my age, you’ll understand.”

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT.

The Anglican Church in Palma will be open today from 11am to 13h for people to drop in and chat with the priest or just sit quietly and pray, reflect or meditate. Social distancing will be observed and masks must be worn.

Our Fun Friday offering today comes from our reader Linda Cade. Thanks Linda!

FOOD FOR THOUGHT CHRISTIAN ONE-LINERS Don’t worry if people say you are crazy for being a Christian; remember Moses was a basket case!

Most people are kind, polite and well-mannered until you try and sit in their pew!

Many people want to serve God but only as advisors.

It’s easier to preach ten sermons than live one.

The good Lord didn’t create anything without a purpose but mosquitoes come close!

When you get to your wit’s end you’ll find God lives there.

People are funny; they want the front of the bus, the middle of the road and the back of the church.

Stop moaning about your church; remember if it was perfect you couldn’t belong to it!

If a church wants a better priest, it just needs to pray for the one it has.

God himself doesn’t propose to judge people until they are dead so why should we?

God doesn’t call the qualified; he qualifies the called.

God promises a safe landing not a calm passage.

Those who anger you, control you!

If God is your co-pilot, swap seats!

Prayer – don’t give God instructions just report for duty.

The task ahead of us is never as great as the power behind us.

The will of God will never take us to where the grace of God will not protect us.

Who knew that Gillian Garden had a huge cupboard in her flat full of fun facts and jokes? Thanks for this gem Gillian for Fun Friday.

HOW TO BE SPANISH Learning the language is only the first step to becoming Spanish. Getting a tan and knowing tapas from your pintxos are steps two and three but there’s still a long way to go before you can pass yourself off as anything other than a guiri. There are some shortcuts, though.

First, forget Anglo-Saxon notions of politeness, discretion and decorum. Being Spanish means walking into a bar, kissing and hugging complete strangers, shouting “oiga” at the waiter..

You can also drop please and thank yous. They’re so unnecessary.

If you’re a lady, carry a fan. Over here, it’s a tool not a souvenir and, regardless of gender, do try to develop the uncanny Spanish skill of knowing instinctively where the coolness is. Not hipster coolness – the ambient one.

Spanish have a disdain for punctuality. Arriving anywhere thirty minutes late is actually considered quite early and really quite rude.

You need to learn food etiquette, too. Start with a breakfast of tostadas, sobrasada and a cortado – and don’t ask for butter. This is olive oil country.

Stop whatever you are doing at 11am and nip out for a beer and a sandwich. That should keep you going till lunch time when you’ll be going for a three course menu del día. That will take between two and three hours – then go for a kip.

Next tapas. You can always spot the Brits. They’re the ones who walk into a crowded tapas bar and can’t believe there’s a table free. That’s because the Spanish sneer at tables. Tapas are eaten at the bar, while yelling at the waiter and throwing stuff on the floor. Except the glasses – remember that.

Then go home and watch telly. Got Talent España and Sabado Deluxe – a sort of Jeremy Kyle for celebrities – are good choices. They’re probably on in the bar, too, but with all the shouting you wouldn’t be able to hear a thing.

Ten o’clock is dinner-time. Start with beer or ice cold red wine because cocktails are for after dinner. Make sure you eat everything you’ve ordered. Countries that have suffered famine are funny about that.

Don’t go overboard on tips – it’s not done here.

Finally, always take your phone to the toilet. This is a)so that you can check for messages from your secret lover and most importantly

b)because every motion motivated light switch in Spain is programmed to go out after four seconds.

Bienvenidos.

PLASTIC FREE FEBRUARY

Plastic is a wonderful material, it is resistant, malleable, durable – and cheap compared with other materials on the market. Over time, it has become the most used material, especially with regard to home and personal items. Since 1950, more than a tonne of plastic has been produced for every person alive today. With consumption comes waste, and here, the characteristics of plastics have a negative effect. It is very resistant and slow to degrade. It has become the most discarded and dumped material in our rivers, soil and seas. More than 150 million tonnes of plastic has already entered the oceans and another 11 million tonnes will end up there each future year, with almost 1,000 marine species known to be contaminated by the waste.

FROM VICKY PACEY AT ST ANDREWS

Good afternoon everyone

This is just a quick note to wish you a Happy and Safe February and to remind you of the churches pledge to creation with a reduction of use of plastics this month.

Plastic Free February has the purpose of trying to reduce the amount of plastics we use. We will do this, as much as we are able, by monitoring and reducing our personal use of plastic at home.

Tips for starting:

  1. Look carefully at labels, some of the personal products like body creams and gels are full of microplastic. Try to avoid them!

  2. Use your own cloth bags when buying your vegetables and bread. Nowadays you can buy vegetables without using a plastic bag, weighing them at the checkout and using your cloth bag to take them home.

  3. Avoid double packaging! Biscuits, cookies and some other products come in small bags. Avoid those!

  4. Try to buy a detergent that can clean windows, counters and ovens, instead of buy 3 different ones. Also for bathroom products.

  5. Every time you can, buy products in a glass bottle instead of in a plastic bottle.

  6. Plastic water bottles are a big issue in Mallorca but why not consider a water filter, either the jug variety or the type which screws onto your tap?  Or look to having your water delivered? Our church council has various suggestions for this and will be happy to give you advice or contact details.

In general

  • Reduce your consumption,

  • Reuse what you already have,

  • Refuse to accept what you don’t want,

  • Recycle what you can’t use anymore

Please join us, even if you are not registering how much you reduce.  Every little helps.  Thank you.

Blessings and prayers

Vicky

Day 7 of week of prayer for Christian unity 1 Cor 1:10-13; 3:21-23 Jn 17:20-23 Meditation Growing in unity “I am the vine, you are the branches” (Jn 15:5a) Is Christ divided? As you and I are one On the eve of his death, Jesus prayed for the unity of those the Father gave him: “that they may all be one … so that the world may believe”. Joined to him, as a branch is to the vine, we share the same sap that circulates among us and vitalizes us. Each tradition seeks to lead us to the heart of our faith: communion with God, through Christ, in the Spirit. The more we live this communion, the more we are connected to other Christians and to all of humanity. Paul warns us against an attitude that had already threatened the unity of the first Christians: absolutizing one’s own tradition to the detriment of the unity of the body of Christ. Differences then become divisive instead of mutually enriching. Paul had a very broad vision: “All are yours, and you are of Christ, and Christ is of God” (1 Cor 3:22-23). Christ’s will commits us to a path of unity and reconciliation. It also commits us to unite our prayer to his: “that they may all be one. . .so that the world may believe” (Jn 17:21). Never resign yourself to the scandal of the separation of Christians who so readily profess love for their neighbour, and yet remain divided. Make the unity of the body of Christ your passionate concern. Prayer Holy Spirit, vivifying fire and gentle breath, come and abide in us. Renew in us the passion for unity so that we may live in awareness of the bond that unites us in you. May all who have put on Christ at their Baptism unite and bear witness together to the hope that sustains them. The Rule of Taizé in French and English (2012) p. 13

 

SATURDAY 23 JANUARY 2021

Day 6 of week of prayer for Christian unity Gen 18:1-5 Mk 6:30-44 Meditation Welcoming others “Go and bear fruit, fruit that will last” (Jn 15:16b) Abraham hosts the angels at the Oak of Mamre Jesus’ compassion for the crowds When we let ourselves be transformed by Christ, his love in us grows and bears fruit. Welcoming the other is a concrete way of sharing the love that is within us. Throughout his life, Jesus welcomed those he met. He listened to them and let himself be touched by them without being afraid of their suffering. In the gospel account of the multiplication of the loaves, Jesus is moved with compassion after seeing the hungry crowd. He knows that the entire human person must be nourished, and that he alone can truly satisfy the hunger for bread and the thirst for life. But he does not wish to do this without his disciples, without that little something they can give him: five loaves and two fish. Even today he draws us to be co-workers in his unconditional care. Sometimes something as small as a kind look, an open ear, or our presence is enough to make a person feel welcome. When we offer our poor abilities to Jesus, he uses them in a surprising way. We then experience what Abraham did, for it is by giving that we receive, and when we welcome others, we are blessed in abundance. It is Christ himself whom we receive in a guest. The rule of Taizé in French and English (2012) p. 103 Will the people we welcome day after day find in us men and women radiant with Christ, our peace? The Sources of Taizé (2000) p. 60 Prayer Jesus Christ, we desire to welcome fully the brothers and sisters who are with us. You know how often we feel helpless in the face of their suffering, yet you are always there ahead of us and you have already received them in your compassion. Speak to them through our words, support them through our actions, and let your blessing rest on us all. Sent from Robinson’s iPad

Karin Giri

WE ARE SAD TO ANNOUNCE THE DEATH TODAY OF A LONG TIME MEMBER OF OUR CONGREGATION KARIN GIRI WIFE OF GEORGE AND A BELOVED MOTHER AND GRANDMOTHER. MAY SHE REST IN PEACE AND RISE IN GLORY.

Day 5 of week of prayer for Christian unity Deut 30:11-20 Mt 5:1-12 Meditation Letting oneself be transformed by the Word “You have already been pruned by the word…” (Jn 15:3) The word of God is very close to you Blessed are you The Word of God is very close to us. It is a blessing and a promise of happiness. If we open our hearts, God speaks to us and patiently transforms that which is dying in us. He removes that which prevents the growth of real life, just as the vine grower prunes the vine. Regularly meditating on a biblical text, alone or in a group, changes our outlook. Many Christians pray the Beatitudes every day. The Beatitudes reveal to us a happiness that is hidden in that which is unfulfilled, a happiness that lies beyond suffering: blessed are those who, touched by the Spirit, no longer hold back their tears but let them flow and thus receive consolation. As they discover the wellspring hidden within their inner landscape, the hunger for justice, and the thirst to engage with others for a world of peace, grows in them. We are constantly called to renew our commitment to life, through our thoughts and actions. There are times when we already taste, here and now, the blessing that will be fulfilled at the end of time. Pray and work that God may reign. Throughout your day Let the Word of God breathe life into work and rest. Maintain inner silence in all things so as to dwell in Christ. Be filled with the spirit of the Beatitudes, joy, simplicity, mercy. These words are recited daily by the Sisters of the Grandchamp Community Prayer Blessed are you, God our Father, for the gift of your word in Holy Scripture. Blessed are you for its transforming power. Help us choose life and guide us by your Spirit, so that we can experience the happiness which you want so much to share with us. Sent from my iPhone

Day 4 of week of prayer for Christian Unity Rom 8:26-27 Lk 11:1-4 Meditation Praying together “I do not call you servants any longer… but I have called you friends” (Jn 15:15) The Spirit helps us in our weakness Lord, teach us to pray God thirsts for relationship with us. He searches for us as he searched for Adam, calling to him in the garden: “Where are you?” (Gen 3:9) In Christ, God came to meet us. Jesus lived in prayer, intimately united to his Father, while creating friendships with his disciples and all those he met. He introduced them to that which was most precious to him: the relationship of love with his Father, who is our Father. Jesus and the disciples sang psalms together, rooted in the richness of their Jewish tradition. At other times, Jesus retired to pray alone. Prayer can be solitary or shared with others. It can express wonder, complaint, intercession, thanksgiving or simple silence. Sometimes the desire to pray is there, but one has the feeling of not being able to do so. Turning to Jesus and saying to him, “teach me”, can pave the way. Our desire itself is already prayer. Getting together in a group offers us support. Through hymns, words and silence, communion is created. If we pray with Christians of other traditions, we may be surprised to feel united by a bond of friendship that comes from the One who is beyond all division. The forms may vary, but it is the same Spirit that brings us together. In the regularity of our common prayer, the love of Jesus springs up within us, we know not how. Common prayer does not exempt us from personal prayer. One sustains the other. Let us take a time each day to renew our personal intimacy with Jesus Christ. Prayer Lord Jesus, your entire life was prayer, perfect harmony with the Father. Through your Spirit, teach us to pray according to your will of love. May the faithful of the whole world unite in intercession and praise, and may your kingdom of love come. The Rule of Taizé in French and English Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge, Great Britain pp. 19 & 21

 

DAY 3 of week of prayer for Christian Unity Col 3:12-17 Jn 13:1-15; 34-35 Meditation Forming one body “Love one another as I have loved you” (Jn 15:12b) Clothe yourself with compassion Love one another On the eve of his death, Jesus knelt to wash the feet of his disciples. He knew the difficulty of living together and the importance of forgiveness and mutual service. “Unless I wash you,” he said to Peter, “you have no share with me.” Peter received Jesus at his feet; he was washed and was touched by the humility and gentleness of Christ. Later he would follow Jesus’ example and serve the fellowship of the faithful in the early church. Jesus wishes that life and love circulate through us as the sap through the vine, so that Christian communities be one body. But today as in the past, it is not easy to live together. We are often faced with our own limitations. At times we fail to love those who are close to us in a community, parish or family. There are times when our relationships break down completely. In Christ we are invited to be clothed in compassion, through countless new beginnings. The recognition that we are loved by God moves us to welcome each other with our strengths and weaknesses. It is then that Christ is in our midst. With almost nothing, are you a creator of reconciliation in that communion of love, which is the Body of Christ, his Church? Sustained by a shared momentum, rejoice! You are no longer alone, in all things you are advancing together with your brothers and sisters. With them, you are called to live the parable of community. Prayer God our Father, you reveal to us your love through Christ and through our brothers and sisters. Open our hearts so that we can welcome each other with our differences and live in forgiveness. Grant us to live united in one body, so that the gift that is each person comes to light. May all of us together be a reflection of the living Christ. The Sources of Taizé (2000) pp. 48-49

Safety first: Please put on your seatbelt and wait for accident – in a Japanese taxi

Not to be removed from Crewe station – on a luggage trolley at Singapore airport

Do not turn upside down – printed on the bottom of a tiramisu dessert box

Toilet out of order please use floor below – in an office block in Manchester

Horse manure 50p a bag ready packed – 20p a bag do-it-yourself – outside a farm

ENGLISH IS A COMPLICATED LANGUAGE

Let’s face it – English is a terrible language :

There is no egg in egg-plant, no ham in hamburger and neither pine nor apple in pineapple. English muffins were not invented in England and French fries were not invented in France.

We sometimes take English for granted but if we examine the paradoxes we find that quicksand takes you down slowly, boxing rings are square and a guinea pig is neither from Guinea nor is it a pig.

If writers write, why don’t fingers fing?

If the plural of tooth is teeth, shouldn’t the plural of phone booth be phone beeth?

If the teacher taught, why didn’t the preacher praught?

If a vegetarian eats vegetables, what the heck does a humanitarian eat?

Why do people recite at a play yet play at a recital?

You have to marvel at the unique lunacy of a language where a house can burn up as it burns down and in which you fill in a form by filling it out.

A bell is only heard once it goes.

English was invented by people not computers and it reflects the creativity of the human race (which, of course, isn’t a race at all)

That is why when the stars are out they are visible, but when the lights are out they are invisible.

Why is it that when I wind my watch up it starts but when I wind the story up it ends?

More food for thought;

Do infants enjoy infancy as much as adults enjoy adultery?

If love is blind, why is lingerie so popular?

Why is the person who plays the piano a pianist but a person who drives a race car is not a racist?

Why are wise men and wise guys opposites?

Why do overlook and oversee mean opposite things?

If horrific means to make horrible, why doesn’t terrific mean to make terrible?

Why isn’t 11 pronounced onety one?

If lawyers are disbarred and clergymen defrocked, doesn’t it follow that electricians can be delighted, musicians denoted, cowboys deranged, models deposed and dry cleaners depressed?.

Why is it that if someone tells you that there are one billion stars in the universe you believe them but if they tell you a wall has wet paint you feel you have to touch it to be sure.

If you take an Oriental person and spin him round several times, does he become disoriented?

If people from Poland are called Poles, why aren’t people from Holland called Holes?

DAILY PRAYER TUESDAY 22 DECEMBER 2020

I love this story as it is truth!! There is so much wrong with the current prevalent philosophy of looking inwards. A professor gave a balloon to every student, who had to inflate it, write their name on it and throw it in the hallway. The professors then mixed all the balloons. The students were given 5 minutes to find their own balloon. Despite a hectic search, no one found their balloon. At that point the professors told the students to take the first balloon that they found and hand it to the person whose name was written on it. Within 5 minutes everyone had their own balloon. The professors said to the students: “These ballons are like happiness. We will never find it if everyone is looking for their own. But if we care about other people’s happiness….we’ll find ours too.

Fun Friday and thanks to Ken Greenall for these chuckles.

WISDOM speaking…Pay Attention…

1) To me, “drink responsibly” means don’t spill it.

2) Age 70 might be the new 50, but 9:00 pm is the new midnight.

3) It’s the start of a brand new day, and I’m off like a herd of turtles.

4) The older I get, the earlier it gets late.

5) When I say, “The other day,” I could be referring to any time between yesterday and 15 years ago.

6) I had my patience tested. I’m negative.

7) Remember, if you lose a sock in the dryer, it comes back as a Tupperware lid that doesn’t fit any of your containers.

8)If you’re sitting in public and a stranger takes the seat next to you, just stare straight ahead and say, “Did you bring the money?”

9) When you ask me what I am doing today, and I say “nothing,” it does not mean I am free. It means I am doing nothing.

10) I finally got eight hours of sleep. It took me three days, but whatever.

11) I hate when a couple argues in public, and I missed the beginning and don’t know whose side I’m on.

12) When someone asks what I did over the weekend, I squint and ask, “Why, what did you hear?”

13) I don’t mean to interrupt people. I just randomly remember things and get really excited.

14) When I ask for directions, please don’t use words like “east.”

A little something to ponder – from an man in his 70’s heading towards 80 and the changes he is feeling in himself.

#1 After loving my parents, my siblings, my spouse, my children, my friends, now I have started loving myself.

#2 I just realized that I am not “Atlas”. The world does not rest on my shoulders.

#3 I now stopped bargaining with vegetables & fruits vendors. A few pennies more is not going to burn a hole in my pocket but it might help the poor fellow save for his daughter’s school fees.

#4 I pay my waitress a big tip. The extra money might bring a smile to her face. She is toiling much harder for a living than me.

#5 I stopped telling the elderly that they’ve already narrated that story many times. The story makes them walk down the memory lane & relive the past.

#6 I have learned not to correct people even when I know they are wrong. The onus of making everyone perfect is not on me. Peace is more precious than perfection.

#7 I give compliments freely & generously. Compliments are a mood enhancer not only for the recipient, but also for me. And a small tip for the recipient of a compliment, never, NEVER turn it down, just say “Thank You”.

#8 I have learned not to bother about a crease or a spot on my shirt. Personality speaks louder than appearances.

#9 I walk away from people who don’t value me. They might not know my worth, but I do.

#10 I remain cool when someone plays dirty to outrun me in the rat race. I am not a rat & neither am I in any race.

#11 I am learning not to be embarrassed by my emotions. It’s my emotions that make me human.

#12 I have learned that it’s better to drop the ego than to break a relationship. My ego will keep me aloof, whereas with relationships I will never be alone.

#13 I have learned to live each day as if it’s the last. After all, it might be the last.

#14 I am doing what makes me happy. I am responsible for my happiness, and I owe it to myself. Happiness is a choice. You can be happy at any time, just Why do we have to wait to be 70 or 80, why can’t we practice this at any stage and age?

If you would still like to make a donation of either non perishable goods or money these can be left at the church before the service or on Monday or Wednesday morning between 9 am and 1 pm when the office is open.

Fun Friday and worth a read.

Pay special attention to the wording and spelling. if you know the bible, even a little, you’ll find this hilarious! It comes from a Caithness school test.

Kids were asked questions about the old and new testaments.  Here is the last set of 9 statements about the bible were written by children. They have not been retouched or corrected. incorrect spelling has been left in.

 

 

When the three wise guys from the east side arrived they found Jesus in the manager.

 Jesus was born because Mary had an immaculate contraption.

Jesus enunciated the golden rule, which says to do unto others before they do one to you. He also explained a man doth not live by sweat alone.

It was a miricle when Jesus rose from the dead and managed to get the tombstone off the entrance.

The people who followed the lord were called the 12 decibels.

The epistels were the wives of the apostles.

One of the oppossums was St. Matthew who was also a taximan.

St. Paul cavorted to christianity, he preached holy acrimony, which is another name for marraige.

Christians have only one spouse. This is called monotony.

They have not been retouched or corrected. incorrect spelling has been left in.

1. In the first book of the bible, Guinness. god got tired of creating the world so he took the sabbath off.

4. Samson slayed the philistines with the axe of the apostles.

5. Moses led the jews to the red sea where they made unleavened bread, which is bread without any ingredients.

6. The egyptians were all drowned in the dessert. Afterwards, Moses went up to mount cyanide to get the ten commandments.

8. The seventh commandment is thou shalt not admit adultery.

When God created woman he was working late on the 6th day. An angel came by and asked, “Why spend so much time on her?” The Lord answered, “Have you seen all the specifications I have to meet to shape her? She must function in all kinds of situations. She must be able to embrace several kids at the same time. Have a hug that can heal anything from a bruised knee to a broken heart. She must do all this with only two hands. She cures herself when sick and can work 18 hours a day.” The angel was impressed, “Just two hands…impossible! And this is the standard model?” The angel came closer and touched the woman. “But you have made her so soft, Lord.” “She is soft”, said the Lord, “But I have made her strong. You can’t imagine what she can endure and overcome.” “Can she think?” The angel asked. The Lord answered, “Not only can she think, she can reason and negotiate.” The angel touched her cheeks. “Lord, it seems this creation is leaking! You have put too many burdens on her.” “She is not leaking…it is a tear” the Lord corrected the angel. “What’s it for?” Asked the angel. The Lord said, “Tears are her way of expressing her grief, her doubts, her love, her loneliness, her suffering and her pride.” This made a big impression on the angel, “Lord, you are a genius. You thought of everything. A woman is indeed marvellous!” Lord said, “Indeed she is. She has strength that amazes a man. She can handle trouble and carry heavy burdens. She holds happiness, love and opinions. She smiles when she feels like screaming. She sings when she feels like crying. Cries when happy and laughs when afraid. She fights for what she believes in. Her love is unconditional. Her heart is broken when a next-of-kin or a friend dies but she finds strength to get on with life.” The angel asked: “So she is a perfect being?” The Lord replied, “No. She has just one drawback…she often forgets what she is worth.” -Donna Ashworth ❤🙏🔥 Artist: Simone Wojciechowski

Fun Friday is here again. Thanks to our church warden Nita for these gems.

It is with great sadness that I have to mention the loss of a few local businesses.

A local Bra Shop has gone bust.

A Mining Company has gone under.

A manufacturer of food blenders has gone into liquidation.

A Dog Kennels has had to call in the retrievers.

An origami book company has folded.

An Aerial Installation company has called in the receivers.

A Key Company has gone into lockdown.

A Watchsmith has wound down and called time.

An Iceland store has had its assets frozen.

A Shoe Factory has been soled and employees given the boot.

The Heinz factory has been canned as they couldn’t ketchup with orders.

The tarmac company has reached the end of the road.

The bread company has run out of dough.

The laundrette has been taken to the cleaners.

And finally the AA Recovery Service are on their way to a breakdown.

Fun Friday so the last in the series of What Love means to 4-8 year old children.

‘Love is when Mommy sees Daddy smelly and sweaty and still says he is handsomer than Robert Redford.’ Chris – age 7

‘Love is when your puppy licks your face even after you left him alone all day.’ Mary Ann – age 4

‘I know my older sister loves me because she gives me all her old clothes and has to go out and buy new ones.’ Lauren – age 4

‘When you love somebody , your eyelashes go up and down and little stars come out of you.’ (what an image) Karen – age 7

‘You really shouldn’t say ‘I love you’ unless you mean it. But if you mean it, you should say it a lot. People forget.’ Jessica – age 8

And the final one: The winner was a four year old child whose next door neighbor was an elderly gentleman who had recently lost his wife. Upon seeing the man cry, the little boy went into the old gentleman’s yard , climbed onto his lap, and just sat there. When his Mother asked what he had said to the neighbor, the little boy said, ‘Nothing, I just helped him cry.’ Sent from Robinson’s iPad

Abba, Father, the trees are ablaze with your glory. The seasons change, but you never do. You are always beautiful, in the green and freshness of spring as in the golds and reds and chills of autumn. Make me like you. Let my life reflect your beauty, season after season, as the calendar of my life turns and turns and turns. The trees are letting go of this year’s foliage. Help me let go of both blessings and burdens, and surrender them both to your loving care. Fallen leaves pattern the ground with variety. So design my own fallings and failings into whatever design will please you most. In Jesus’ name, I pray,

A group of professional people posed this question to a group of 4 to 8 year-olds, ‘What does love mean? The answers they got were broader, deeper, and more profound than anyone could have ever imagined !

‘When my grandmother got arthritis , she couldn’t bend over and paint her toenails anymore.. So my grandfather does it for her all the time , even when his hands got arthritis too. That’s love.’ Rebecca- age 8

‘When someone loves you , the way they say your name is different. You just know that your name is safe in their mouth.’ Billy – age 4

‘Love is when a girl puts on perfume and a boy puts on shaving cologne and they go out and smell each other.’ Karl – age 5

‘Love is when you go out to eat and give somebody most of your French fries without making them give you any of theirs.’ Chrissy – age 6

‘Love is what makes you smile when you’re tired.’ Terri – age 4

‘Love is when my mommy makes coffee for my daddy and she takes a sip before giving it to him , to make sure the taste is OK.’ Danny – age 8

‘Love is what’s in the room with you at Christmas if you stop opening presents and just listen.’ Bobby – age 7 (Wow!)

A young couple moved into a new house. The next morning while they were eating breakfast, the young woman saw her neighbour hanging the washing outside. “That laundry is not very clean; she doesn’t know how to wash correctly. Perhaps she needs better soap powder. Her husband looked on, remaining silent. Every time her neighbour hung her washing out to dry, the young woman made the same comments.

A month later, the woman was surprised to see a nice clean wash on the line and said to her husband, “Look, she’s finally learned how to wash correctly. I wonder who taught her this?” The husband replied, “I got up early this morning and cleaned our windows.”

And so it is with life… What we see when watching others depends on the clarity of the window through which we look. So don’t be too quick to judge others, especially if your perspective of life is clouded by anger, jealousy, negativity or unfulfilled desires. “Judging a person does not define who they are. It defines who you are.” — Jonathan Kestenbaum

Fun Friday Pay special attention to the wording and spelling. if you know the bible, even a little, you’ll find this hilarious! It comes from a Caithness school test.

The seventh commandment is thou shalt not admit adultery.

The greatest miricle in the bible is when Joshua told his son to stand still and he obeyed

Solomon, one of Davids sons, had 300 wives and 700 porcupines.

When Mary heard she was the mother of Jesus, she sang the magna carta.

When the three wise guys from the east side arrived they found Jesus in the manager.

Jesus was born because Mary had an immaculate contraption.

The people who followed the lord were called the 12 decibels.

The epistels were the wives of the apostles.

Christians have only one spouse. This is called monotony.
