Saturday Silliness

Grandma Still Drives

Grandma is eighty-eight years old and still drives her own car.

Dear Grand-daughter,

The other day I went up to our local Christian book store and saw a 'Honk if you love Jesus' bumper sticker .. I was feeling particularly sassy that day because I had just come from a thrilling choir performance, followed by a thunderous prayer meeting.. So, I bought the sticker and put it on my bumper.  Boy, am I glad I did; what an uplifting experience that followed.

I was stopped at a red light at a busy intersection, just lost in thought about the Lord and how good he is, and I didn't notice that the light had changed.  It is a good thing someone else loves Jesus because if he hadn't honked, I'd never have noticed.

I found that lots of people love Jesus!

While I was sitting there, the guy behind started honking like crazy, and then he leaned out of his window and screamed, 'For the love of God!' 'Go! Go! Go! Jesus Christ, GO!'

What an exuberant cheerleader he was for Jesus! Everyone started honking! I just leaned out my window and started waving and smiling at all those loving people.  I even honked my horn a few times to share in the love!

There must have been a man from Florida back there because I heard him yelling something about a sunny beach..  I saw another guy waving in a funny way with only his middle finger stuck up in the air.

I asked my young teenage grandson in the back seat what that meant.  He said it was probably a Hawaiian good luck sign or something.  Well, I have never met anyone from Hawaii , so I leaned out the window and gave him the good luck sign right back. My grandson burst out laughing. Why even he was enjoying this religious experience!!

A couple of the people were so caught up in the joy of the moment that they got out of their cars
and started walking towards me. I bet they wanted to pray or ask what church I attended, but this is when I noticed the light had changed.

So, grinning, I waved at all my brothers and sisters, and drove on through the intersection.

I noticed that I was the only car that got through the intersection
before the light changed again and felt kind of sad that I had to leave them after all the love we had shared.  So I slowed the car down, leaned out the window and gave them all the Hawaiian good luck sign one last time as I drove away.

Praise the Lord for such wonderful folks!!

Will write again soon,

Love, Grandma


The reason Politicians try so
hard to get re-elected is that they
would hate to have to make a living
under the laws they've passed.
 Take On Resurrection...........

A pastor of this Baptist church had called all of the little children to the front of the church, dressed in their cute Easter outfits and
had them sit around him.

He said "Today is Easter and you all look so handsome and beautiful. Today we're going to talk about the resurrection. Does anyone know
what the resurrection is?" One little boy raised his hand, and the pastor said "Please tell us what the resurrection is".

The boy, proud that he knew the answer, said in a clear loud voice "When you get one lasting more than four hours, you gotta call a doctor!"

It took a solid 10 minutes before the pastor could speak and there was so much laughter going on that his sermon was probably forgotten - but
that boy's voice won't be.
Within the heart of every stray dog lies the singular desire to be loved.

A dog is truly a man's best friend.

If you don't believe it, just try this experiment:

Put your dog and your spouse in the trunk of the car for an hour.

When you open the trunk , who is really happy to see you?

Love Grandma's letter describing her religious experience. God bless her.

I think Grandma needs her license revoked.
AND I'm ALWAYS wishing politicians would have to live a year or two on basic wages under the laws they've passed. It's so easy when you're financially safe as they are, but down here at poverty level, things get a little tough. I recently saw on Aus TV that the poverty line here is $xxx per week and I'm quite a bit under that. Yet I'm managing quite well.

Oh my gosh, the grandmother story had me laughing out loud! HILARIOUS.

And thanks to commercials our once sheltered children know more about religious matters than they should!

Men and dogs, though at times share the qualities differ in matters so trivial! Why can't put my man in the trunk for just a little bit? And he rolls over for a nice belly scratch and some nice thank you kisses when we reach our destination ;D!

You kill me!

That first one wins this week. It's hysterical!

Yep, I agree, grandma takes the cake, but the laughing dog is a close second :) said...

The grandma letter was a hoot! Love the dog too! said...
