I Heard Him.

Post 318 - - - - - - Friday, 21st September, 2007.

Hello Everyone ~~ I hope the world is treating you right and
that all is well with you. I am OK, although I don't know where
today got to. It just went swoosh and it is nearly gone for good.
I did some laundry and made up some meals from my chicken
casserole. A friend called in for while and then the day was gone.

There are a couple of people I would like to thank.

First Vivienne who is my cousin's niece - Thanks for your
comments, I don't have your e-mail address, but it was nice
of you to leave a message. See you again, some day.

Second is Kathy from Western Australia ~~ Thanks for your
comments. And it would be nice if we (Carlton) get Chris Judd
and I understand you not wanting him to go to B. Collingwood.

Tonight I have a small poem called "I heard Him" written by
Eleanor Lyons Culver. I hope you enjoy it.

I heard the great Creator's voice speak softly in the breeze,
I heard Him when He rustled all the branches in the trees.

I heard Him in the patter of a cool refreshing shower,
And in the mighty river's boom, I heard Him speak with power.

I heard Him in the chatter of a squirrel all dressed in fur,
And in the sweet contentment of a fuzzy kitten's purr.

I heard Him in the cricket's chirp one starry summer night,
And when the saucy rooster crowed announcing morning's light.

I heard Him in a waterfall and in a singing creek,
And in the whisper of the pines, I'm sure I heard Him speak.

I felt the great Creator near in all His wondrous ways
And then I paused to bow my head in gratitude and praise.

My friend sent me the following in an e-mail. Thanks, Sherrill.


There have been times when I may have :
Disturbed you,
Troubled you,
Pestered you,
Irritated you,
Bugged you, or
Got on your nerves with all the e-mails I send.

So today, I just wanna tell you that . . . .


(Keep them coming Sherrill and Ian.)

"Good heavens, " he exclaimed, "what is this ?"

"Why, it's bean soup," she replied.

"I don't care where it's been, " he sputtered. "What is it now ?"

Now his mind travels back to the only time he had been unfaithful
to his wife and says, "My God, are the stripper from my bachelor
party that I made love to on the pool table with all my buddies
watching, while your partner whipped my butt with wet celery?"

She looks into his eyes and says calmly, "No, I'm your son's teacher."

An engineer was crossing the road one day, when a frog called out
to him and said, : If you kiss mr, I'll turn into a beautiful princess."

He bent over and picked up the frog and put it in his pocket.
The frog spoke up again and said,

If you kiss me I'll turn into a beautiful princess and stay
with you for one week."

The engineer took the frog out of his pocket, smiled at it and
returned it to his pocket.

The frog then cried out; "If you kiss me, I will turn into a princess.
I'll stay with you for onr week and do ANYTHING you want."

Again, the engineer took the frog out, smiled at it and put it back
in his pocket.

Finally the frog asked; "What's the matter ? I've told you I'm a
beautiful princess and that I'll stay with you for one week and do
anything you want. Why won't you kiss me ?"

The engineer said, "Look, I'm an engineer. I don't have time for
a girlfriend, but a talking frog, now that's cool !!"

Dear Merle,

You've done it again!
I love the poem "I Heard Him" as well.

Chuckles galore, inspiration, and fun abound here.

Love "You're only young once, but you can stay immature indefinitely." My thoughts exactly!

And hey, "Time may be a great healer, but it's a lousy beautician" is right on the money!

Have a wonderful weekend, dear Merle. I shall return.

Love and good wishes,

Just catching up on your posts, Merle. That chicken casserole sounds delicious. I've just put a corn and potato soup on to simmer and I can't wait for it to cook...but I'll have to!

I'm having a pretty lazy weekend. Visited some friends for a little while yesterday but other than that, I'm enjoying my peace and quiet...and so are my two furry rascals. :)

That certainly is a magnificent home of your son's. :)

I wonder how many people were like me and tried to measure their thumb against their nose...

Getting one's butt whippped with wet celery...good heavens.

Yes, my day has disappeared never to return, too, Merle. I was going to do so much, but didn't get around to most of it. Oh well, never mind, there's always tomorrow, and tomorrow and...

Hugs xoxo
