Random Thoughts.

Post 235 - - - - - - Wednesday, 20th June, 2007.

Hi Everyone~~ I am rather late starting tonight, so this may be a
short one. Hope all is well in your part of the world. All OK here.
Tomorrow is the shortest day of our year, winter solstice, so in a
few weeks, we should see the days lengthen just a little bit.

I am delighted to hear that my granddaughter Bec in Queensland
is coming for a week's visit on July 9th, so that will be great.
Another granddaughter is having holidays before then and may
also visit, so that would also be great Kate and maybe Kristen too.

Tonight I have a list of "Random Thoughts." Hope you enjoy.

Don't let your worries get the best of you.
Remember, Moses started out as a basket case.
Many people want to serve God, but only as advisors.
The good Lord didn't create anything without a purpose, but
mosquitoes and sand gnats come close.
When you get to your wit's end, you'll find God lives there.
Opportunity may knock once, but temptation bangs on your front
door forever.
Quit griping about your church; if it was perfect, you couldn't belong.
If the church wants a better pastor, it only needs to pray for the one
it has.
God, Himself does not propose to judge a man until he is dead.
Why should you ?
Some minds are like concrete, thoroughly mixed up and permanently set.
I don't know why people change churches, what difference does it make
which one you stay home from.
We were called to be witnesses, not lawyers or judges.
Be ye be fishers of men.
You catch them - He'll clean them.
Coincidence is when God chooses to remain anonymous.
Don't put a question mark where God puts a period.
Forbidden fruits create many jams.
God doesn't call the qualified, He qualifies the called.
God loves everyone, but probably prefers "fruits of the
spirit" over "religious nuts."
God promises a safe landing, not a calm passage.
If God is your Copilot - - -- 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 you to where the Grace of God
will not protect you.
We don't change the message, the message changes us.
You can tell how big a person is by what it takes to discourage him.
The best mathematical equation I have ever seen :
1 cross + 3 nails = 4 given.

First two jokes borrowed from Nick.
Thanks Nick.

A little boy was lost at a large shopping mall. He
approached a uniformed policeman and said, "I've lost
my Dad."
The cop asked, "What's he like ?"

The little boy thought for a moment and then replied,
"Beer and blonde women with big boobs."

A blonde out of money and down on her luck after buying
air at a real bargain, needed money desperately. To raise
cash, she decided to kidnap a child and hold him for ransom.

She went to the local playground, grabbed a kid randomly,
took her behind a building and told her, "I've kidnapped you."

She then wrote a big note saying, "I've kidnapped your kid.
Tomorrow morning, put $10,000 in a paper bag and leave it
under the apple tree next to the slides on the south side of
the playground. Signed, A blonde."

The blonde then pinned the note to the kid's shirt and sent
her home to show her parents. The next morning the blonde
checked, and sure enough, a paper bag was sitting beneath
the apple tree. The blonde looked in the bag and found the
$10,000 with a note that said, "How could you do this to a
fellow blonde ?"

Coffee Drinkers: You know you are addicted to coffee if - - - -

You grind your coffee beans in your mouth.

You sleep with your eyes open.

You have to watch videos in fast-forward.

The only time you're standing still is during an earthquake.

You've worn out your third pair of tennis shoes this week.

Your eyes stay open when you sneeze.

You chew other people's fingernails.

The nurse needs a scientific calculator to take your pulse.

You can type sixty words a minute with your feet.

You can jump start your car without cables.

You don't sweat - - you percolate.

You forget to unwrap candy bars before eating them.

People get dizzy just watching you.

Instant coffee takes too long.

You get a speeding ticket even when you're parked.

You answer the door before people knock.

You haven't blinked since the last lunar eclipse.

Bye now folks - - time for bed for me. Take good
care of yourselves and each other. Love and best
wishes to you all. Cheers, Merle.

Loved the Random Thoughts especially "Quit Griping" that could be the Episcopal Churches motto here in the states.
I hope both Granddaughters get to come for a visit.

I finally got around to looking up your town on the map - I had not realized it was so far south. I know you will enjoy the upcoming visits. The one about the coffee drinkers was hilarious. ec

Imagine my disappointment when I dropped by and there was not a Thursday post.

Today after 1pm it will be the official start of summer here in Tennessee. The day started out with a low in high 50's but alas will end in the 80's. The best part our humidity is low.

I think I would kindly give up anything but my morning cup of coffee. We have a friend in Michigan who calls it "Starter Fluid". I think he has a point.
