Joke - 50th Anniversary...

50th Anniversary

While enjoying an early morning breakfast in a northern Arizona cafe,
four elderly ranchers were discussing everything from cattle, horses,
and weather, to how things used to be in the 'good ol' days'.

Eventually the conversation moved on to their spouses. One gentleman
turned to the fellow on his right and asked, "Roy, aren't you and your
bride celebrating your fiftieth wedding anniversary soon?"

"Yup, we sure are," Roy replied.

"Well, are you gonna do anything special to celebrate?"
another man asked.

The old gentleman pondered this for a moment, then replied,
"For our twenty-fifth anniversary, I took Bea to Tucson. Maybe
for our fiftieth, I'll go down there and get her."

Joke - A Helping Hand...

A Helping Hand

A minister is walking down the street one day when he notices a very
small boy trying to press a doorbell on a house across the street.
However, the boy is very small and the doorbell is too high for him
to reach.

After watching the boy's efforts for some time, the minister moves
closer to the boy's position. He steps smartly across the street, walks
up behind the little fellow, and placing his hand kindly on the child's
shoulder, leans over and gives the doorbell a solid ring.

Crouching down to the child's level, the minister smiles benevolently
and asks, "And now what, my little man?"

To which the boy replies, "Now we run!"

Joke - Late For Work...

Late For Work

Jones came into the office an hour late for the third time
in one week. He found the boss waiting for him.

"What's the story this time, Jones?" he asked sarcastically.
"Let's hear a good excuse for a change."

Jones sighed, "Everything went wrong this morning, boss.
The wife decided to drive me to the station. She got ready
in ten minutes. But on our way here, the drawbridge got
stuck. Rather than let you down, sir, I swam across the
river - look, my suit's still damp. I ran out to the airport,
got a ride on Mr. Thompson's helicopter, landed on top of
Radio City Music Hall, and was carried here piggy-back
by one of the Rockettes."

"You'll have to do better than that, Jones," said the boss,
obviously disappointed. "No woman can get ready in ten

Still He Walked, for Good Friday...

I post this poem every Good Friday. I hope it touches your heart like
it does mine. Wishing everyone a blessed day! Love, Val xox

Still He Walked

- by Carrie McCutcheon

He could hear the crowds screaming, "Crucify, crucify!"
He could hear the hatred in their voices.
These were His chosen people.
He loved them.

And they were going to crucify Him.
He was beaten, bleeding and weakened.
His heart was broken,
But still He walked.

He could see the crowd
As He came from the palace.
He knew each of the faces so well.
He had created them.

He knew every smile, laugh, and shed tear,
But now they were contorted with rage and anger.
His heart broke,
But still He walked.

Was He scared?
You and I would have been.
So His humanness would have mandated that He was.
He felt alone.

His disciples had left,
Denied, and even betrayed Him.
He searched the crowd for a loving face
And He saw very few.

Then He turned His eyes
To the only One that mattered
And He knew that
He would never be alone.

He looked back at the crowd,
At the people who were spitting at Him,
Throwing rocks at Him,
And mocking Him.

And He knew that because of Him,
They would never be alone.
So for them,
He walked.

The sounds of the hammer striking the spikes
Echoed through the crowd.
The sounds of His cries
Echoed even louder.

The cheers of the crowd,
As His hands and feet
Were nailed to the cross,
Intensified with each blow.

Loudest of all was the still small voice inside His
Heart that whispered, "I am with You, My Son,"
And God's heart broke.
He had let His Son walk.

Jesus could have asked God to end His suffering,
But instead He asked God to forgive.
Not to forgive Him,
But to forgive the ones who were persecuting Him.

As He hung on that cross, dying an unimaginable death,
He looked out and saw,
Not only the faces in the crowd,
But also, the face of every person yet to be.

And His heart filled with love.
As His body was dying, His heart was alive.
Alive with the limitless, unconditional love He feels for each of us.
That is why He walked.

When I forget how much my God loves me,
I remember His walk.
When I wonder if I can be forgiven,
I remember His walk.

When I need reminded of how to live like Christ,
I think of His walk.
And to show Him how much I love Him, I wake up each morning,
Turn my eyes to Him, and I walk.
