How Are Your Children

Two friends who hadn’t seen each other in years met in a supermarket.  One woman asked, “Tell me Ruth, how is your son George?”

“He’s getting along fine,” Ruth replied.  “He’s a poet.  He just received his master’s degree in literature from the university.”

“And what about Mary?”

“She’s just as smart as George,” Ruth replied.  “She graduated from college with a degree in modern art.”

Shark Fishing

A priest was walking along the cliffs at Dover when he came upon two locals pulling another man ashore on the end of a rope.  “That’s what I like to see,” said the priest, “a man helping his fellow man.”

As he was walking away, one local remarked to the other, “Well, he sure doesn’t know the first thing about shark fishing.”



Now That’s Cheap

My Uncle Irv is so cheap he sends one Christmas card out each year – in the form of a chain letter.



Hello Friday

Good Friday morning!  I hope this finds you doing extremely well. 

 

We are currently in our “Souper Bowl of Caring” drive.  We are asking everyone to donate food or money that will benefit the Bridge City-Orangefield Ministerial Alliance.  This will finish up on February 2nd, which is Super Bowl Sunday.  On that Sunday The Melton Family Singers will be with us for the AM worship service and there will be a Super Bowl party here at the church that evening.

Nobody But Jesus

At the Milan Cathedral there are three inscriptions over the respective doorways.  Over the right-hand door there is this motto: “All that pleases is but for a moment.”  Over the left-hand door the words are: “All that troubles is but for a moment.”  But over the central door there is a simple sentence: “Nothing is important that which is eternal.”   There are so many things that come up in the course of the year.  What will 2020 hold?  More floods, hurricanes, tornados, mass shootings, crippling accidents, or devasting diseases.  What troubles are ahead of us?  We can also ask, what pleasures are ahead of us in the new year?  New jobs, children, grandchildren, wealth, our favorite sports team wins it all, or we get the recognition we think we deserve.  What pleasures are ahead of us this year?
