Explanation of God.

Post 152 - - - - - - - Tuesday, 27 th February, 2007.

Hi Everyone ~~ I hope you are all doing OK and having a good week. I am fine and
have not yet been able to make an appointment with the urologist. There is no great
urgency, it is just better to get things fixed as soon as possible and then forget them.
Thank you so much for all the good wishes you have sent in the comments.

My dear friend Jeanette sent me this article today and it is nice. Thanks Jan.

This was written by an 8 year old boy named Danny Dutton, who lives in Chula Vista
CA. He wrote it for his third grade homework assignment, to "explain God." I
wonder if any of us could have done as well. He had this assignment in California,
and someone published it. I guess miracles do happen !!!

Explanation of God.

One of God's main jobs is making people. He makes them to replace the ones that
die, so there will be enough people to take care of things on earth. He doesn't make
grownups, just babies. I think because they are smaller and easier to make. That
way he doesn't have to take up his valuable time teachig them to talk and walk.
He can just leave that to mothers and fathers.

God's second most important job is listening to prayers. An awful lot of this goes on, since some people, like preachers and things, pray at times beside bedtime. God doesn't have time to listen to the radio or TV because of this. Because he hears everything, there must be a terrible lot of noise in his ears, unless he has thought of
a way to turn it off.

God sees everything and hears everything and is everywhere which keeps Him pretty busy. So you shouldn't go wasting his time by going over your mom and dad's head asking for something they said you couldn't have.

Atheists are people who don't believe in God. I don't think there are any in Chula Vista. At least tere aren't any who come to our church.

Jesus is God's Son. He used to do all the hard work, like walking on water and
performing miracles and trying to teach people who didn't want to learn about God.
They finally got tired of him preaching to them and they crucified him. But he was good and kind like his father, and he told his father that they didn't know what they were doing and to forgive them and God said O.K.

His dad (God) appreciated everything that he had done and all his hard work on earth so he told him he didn't have to go out on the road anymore. He could stay in heaven. So he did. And now he helps his dad out by listening to prayers and seeing
things which are important for God to take care of and which ones he can take care
of himself without having to bother God. Like a secretary, only more important.

You can pray anytime you want and they are sure to help you because they got it worked out so one of them is on duty all the time.

You should always go to church on Sunday because it makes God happy, and if there's anybody you want to make happy, it's God.

Don't skip church to do something you think will be more fun like going to the beach,
but sometimes fishing is acceptable 'cause fishermen pray a lot.

If you don't believe in God, besides being an atheist, you will be very lonely, because your parents can't go everywhere with you, like to camp, but God can. It is good to know He's around you when you're scared, in the dark or when you can't swim and you get thrown into real deep water by big kids.

But .... you shouldn't just always think of what God can do for you. I figure God put
me here and he can take me back anytime he pleases.

And that's why I believe in God.

(If you believe in God, please pass this on, and may God bless you too.)
Long, but worth reading. Now for some jokes etc.

This one should be called "Never assume !"
On the first day of school, children brought gifts for their teacher.
The florist's son brought the teacher a bunch of flowers, while the lolly store owner's
daughter gave her a lovely box of chocolates.

Then the liquor store owner's son brought a big heavy box. The teacher lifted it up
and noticed that it was leaking. She touched a drop of the liquid with her finger and tasted it, "Is it wine?" she asked. "No," the boy replied.
She tasted another drop and asked, "Champagne ?"
"No," said the boy. "It's a puppy." Sorry about that one !

A blogger friend from Belguim sent this one. Thank you Zanne who is a blonde!

A blind man walks into a bar, and over his pint he leans forward towards the
barmaid and asks if she wants to hear a 'blonde' joke.
"Before you start," she says, "you need to know a few things .... I am a blonde as is
the woman boucer on the door and the manageress of this pub, sitting beside you
is also a blonde, so do you really want to tell this joke ?"

"Nah," replied the blind man, I'd have to explain it three times !!"

My old friend Barbara sent the list of How you can tell you're getting older -- -

1. Your houseplants are alive, and you can't smoke any of them.

2. Having sex in a bunk bed is out of the question.

3. You keep more food than beer in the fridge.

4. 6.am is when you get up, not when you get to bed.

5. You hear your favorite song in the shopping centre.

6. You watch the News.

7. Your friends marry and divorce instead of "hook up" and "break up."

8. You go from 130 days of vacation time to 20.

9. Jeans and sweater no longer qualify as "dressed up."

10. You're the one calling the police ecause the kids next door won't turn down

11. Older relatives feel comfortable telling sex jokes around you.

13. Your car insurance goes down and your car payments go up.

14. You feed your pet Science Diet instead of McDonald's leftovers.

15. Sleeping on the couch makes your back hurt.

16. You take weekend naps from noon.

17. Dinner and a movie is the whole date instead of the beginning of one.

18. Eating a kebab at 3 am would severely upset, rather than settle, your stomach.

19. You go to the chemist for Mylanta and antacid, not condoms & pregnancy tests.

20. A $4.00 bottle of wine is no longer "pretty good stuf."

21. You actually eat breakfast food at breakfast time.

22. "I just can't drink the way I used to" replaces "I'm never going to drink that
much again !"

23. 90% of the time you spend in front of a computer is for real work.

24. You drink at home to save money before going to a bar.

25 You read this entire list looking desperately for one sign that doesn't apply to you
and can't find one to save your sorry old butt. So forward it to a bunch of old
friends because you know (hope) they'll have the same problem.
Just a couple of quotes as this is getting too long !!

Although the world is full of suffering, it is also full of the overcoming of it.
- - - -Helen Keller.

Some people are always grumbling that roses have thorns; I am thankful that thorns
have roses. - - - - Alphonse Karr.

Bye for now Folks, Take care and be happy and enjoy life. Cheers, Merle.
