Marital Pearls of Wisdom


Before June, the month of many weddings, fades into history, I thought I'd post some things a long-time reader reminded me I sent out in 2003, before I started blogging.
 
Gramps and Granny were discussin' their 50th wedding anniversary. She asked, "Shall I kill a chicken tonight?"
 
"Naw," said Gramps. "Why blame the poor bird for something that happened 50 years ago?"

Pearls of wisdom from Grandpa on having a long, happy marriage...
 
Whether a man winds up with the nest egg or a goose egg depends a lot on the kind of chick he marries.

Humerus Puns


The other day a reader sent me a list of puns I don't remember ever seeing. I found them humorous and thought they might tickle your funny bone too. Those who hate puns may have a bone to pick with me. Make no bones about it, though, some of these will make you laugh or groan out loud.

Jokes about German sausage are the wurst.

How does Moses make his tea? Hebrews it.

What Do You Want?


One of the things we struggle with our whole lives is contentment. It seems as if, no matter what we have, we want more of it or something else entirely.

What makes us content?

Today's iv is a couple of things our pastor used as sermon illustrations a few years ago. I jotted down enough to help me locate them, and then I squirreled them away. The first is a list of how a toddler views what he or she wants, and the second is a neat poem.

Toddler’s Rules of Possession

1. If I want it, it's mine

2. If it's in my hand, it's mine

3. If I can take it away from you, it's mine
