Christmas Day again

One more time!  Well, this time it really is Christmas Day.  I even checked it on-line to make sure  🙂   Just was not in the mood for it today.  It was raining outside and the street flooded because a storm drain a couple blocks up was blocked by leaves.   I really wish people would rake their leaves more often.  If it rained for another hour, most likely my apartment would get flooded again.  That would not have been a good way to celebrate Christmas.

I guess after Christmas Eve’s goofball mistake, there was not much Christmas spirit left.  Did not have much to begin with.  The weather has been too warm.  Did not even put out yard decorations this year – first time in years.  I did get to see the Doctor Who Christmas special.   My real Christmas dinner ended up being a Pizza Inn personal pizza and a RC Cola from the local convenience store.   Had to get out of the house.

The thing about the Christmas holidays is it brings back old memories from when I was a kid.  From the first Christmas gift I can remember getting (a clown inflatable punching bag) to a tool box (Handy Dandy) I received in first grade.  The toolbox could possibly be illegal today since it had real tools.  I remember using the saw that came with it on the coffee table.   I remember it well, for obvious reasons.   Needless to say, I did not get to keep it.

Oh well, another Christmas gone.  Now on to a New Year.

Christmas Day

Christmas morning started out like many other mornings.  Since I live by myself and had absolutely no plans this year, I decided to take it easy.  I decided to sit back and watch tv.   Was watching the first season of Max Steel when I decided I was actually going grill my Christmas dinner since it was so warm.

I fired up the grill and tossed a frozen rib-eye onto it.  Stuck some frozen vegetables in the microwave and had me a nice Christmas Dinner.   Well as nice as I wanted.  Once finished, I went back to my Max Steel marathon.   Late in the evening, I decided to watch the Doctor Who Christmas special.   I could not find it, I panic because I really wanted to watch it.  I tried to get it from different sources but then I realized what the problem was after seeing an ad for it, it was only Christmas Eve.  Man, I am getting old…

Burning Hut

The only survivor of a shipwreck washed up on a small, uninhabited island. He prayed feverishly for God to rescue him, and every day he scanned the horizon for help, but none seemed forthcoming. Exhausted, he eventually managed to build a little hut out of driftwood to protect him from the elements, and to store his few possessions. But then one day, after scavenging for food, he arrived home to find his little hut in flames, the smoke rolling up to the sky. The worst had happened; everything was lost. He was stung with grief and anger. “God, how could you do this to me!” he cried.

Early the next day, however, he was awakened by the sound of a ship that was approaching the island. It had come to rescue him. “How did you know I was here?” asked the weary man of his rescuers. “We saw your smoke signal,” they replied.

It is easy to get discouraged when things are going bad. But we shouldn’t lose heart, because God is at work in our lives, even in the midst of pain and suffering.

Remember next time your little hut is burning to the ground- – it just may be a smoke signal that summons the grace of God.

Recall Notice

The Maker of all human beings (GOD) is recalling all units manufactured, regardless of make or year, due to a serious defect in the primary and central component of the heart.

This is due to a malfunction in the original prototype units code named Adam and Eve, resulting in the reproduction of the same defect in all subsequent units. This defect has been identified as “Subsequential Internal Non-morality,” more commonly known as S.I.N., as it is primarily expressed.

Some of the symptoms include :

1. Loss of direction
2. Foul vocal emissions
3. Amnesia of origin
4. Lack of peace and joy
5. Selfish or violent behavior
6. Depression or confusion
7. Fearfulness
8. Idolatry
9. Rebellion

The Manufacturer, who is neither liable nor at fault for this defect, is providing factory-authorized repair and service free of charge to correct this defect. The Repair Technician, JESUS, has most generously offered to bear the entire burden of the staggering cost of these repairs. There is no additional fee required.

The number to call for repair in all areas is: P-R-A-Y-E-R . Once connected, please upload your burden of SIN through the REPENTANCE procedure. Next, download ATONEMENT from the Repair Technician, Jesus, into the heart component.

No matter how big or small the SIN defect is, Jesus will replace it with:

1. Love
2. Joy
3. Peace
4. Patience
5. Kindness
6. Goodness
7. Faithfulness
8. Gentleness
9. Self control

Please see the operating manual, the B.I.B.L.E.(BEST Instructions Before Leaving Earth) for further details on the use of these fixes.

WARNING: Continuing to operate the human being unit without correction voids any manufacturer warranties, exposing the unit to dangers and problems too numerous to list, and will result in the human unit being permanently impounded. For free emergency service, call on Jesus .

DANGER: The human being units not responding to this recall action will have to be scrapped in the furnace. The SIN defect will not be permitted to enter Heaven so as to prevent contamination of that facility. Thank you for your attention!

– GOD

P.S. Please assist where possible by notifying others of this important recall notice, and you may contact the Father any time by ‘Knee mail’!

What God Can’t Do

Sunday school teacher was asking her students some questions after a series of lessons on God’s omnipotence. She asked, “Is there anything God can’t do?”

All was silent. Finally, one boy held up his hand.

The teacher, on seeing this, was disappointed that they had missed the point of the lesson. She sighed and asked, “Well, what is it you think God can’t do?”

The boy replied, “He can’t please everybody.”
