Miscellaneous observations on life…
It’s easy finding reasons why other folks should be patient.

Families are often like fudge – mostly sweet, with a few nuts.

Some cause happiness wherever they go. Others, whenever they go.

I sat up all night thinking about the sun. Then it dawned on me.

It is said that if you line up all the cars in the world end to end, someone would be stupid enough to try to overtake them.

You can’t have everything – where would you put it?

Sick
During a church service my young niece had to go outside, as she did not feel well. She returned a few minutes later and admitted: ‘I have been a little sick. But it doesn’t matter, there’s a box at the door marked ‘for the sick’.
Blessing
One Sunday when my grand-daughter was about two years old, her daddy and mummy made their Communion at my local church, and took her with them for a blessing. Arriving back in our pew she said in a loud voice: ‘Granny, the man has said his prayers on my head, and he has a lovely dress on.’

Judgement?
This true story concerns the visit of a visiting preacher to a little village chapel… ‘He was a few minutes into his sermon when, without warning, about twenty square feet of thick and decayed Victorian plaster fell from high on one wall and crashed into a group of empty pews below. As the dense fog of dust began to settle, and it became clear no one was in injured, the minister prepared to resume his sermon. Then he paused, and looked heavenward and in a slightly pained voice, asked: “Was it something I said?”’
