Okay, it’s Monday and, I’m feeling ok about things. Let’s get this post stawted! (I meant to spell it that way).
It is better to be hated for what you are than to be loved for something you are not. Andre Gide
Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path. Psalm 119:105
There was a preacher who was an avid golfer. Every chance that he could get, he could be found on the golf course swinging away.On one particular Sunday it turned out to be a picture perfect day for golfing. The sun was shining, the temperature was just right and there was very little wind. The preacher was in a quandary and wasn’t sure what to do….play golf or give the Sunday service. The urge to play golf overcame him and he called in his assistant to take care of the Sunday service for him. The preacher packed up his car and drove 3 hours to a course where no one would recognize him.
An angel above was watching the preacher and was quite perturbed. The angel went to God and said, “look at the preacher. He should punished for what he is doing.” God nodded in agreement.
All alone but enjoying it immensely, the preacher teed up on the first hole. He swung at the ball and hit a perfect drive. The ball ripped through the still air straight as an arrow and 400 yards later it landed the green where it gently rolled into the cup. A tremendous hole in one!
The preacher was amazed and excited. The angel was in shock. The angel turned to God and said, “Begging your pardon, but I thought that you were going to punish him?”
God smiled and said, “I did….think about it….who can he tell about this?”
That’s cold, God.
A man is going to Iran to ride for peace. He made friends with an Iranian and now, they are both going across Iran, spreading the word that, you can be friends even if your countries are at war (or being invaded cough cough). Wheels of Peace
Fact: The first people to make chocolate were the native people of Mesoamerica (the area that is now called Central America). These people – the Maya and the Aztec – used the pods of the cacao tree, which is native to Central and South America, to make chocolate.
And that’s a wrap!
