God’s army
Dewey was in front of me coming out of church one day, and the minister was standing at the door, as he always is, to shake hands. Suddenly he grabbed Dewey by the hand and pulled him aside. The minister said sternly “Dewey, you need to join the Army of the Lord!”
Dewey replied, “I’m already in the Army of the Lord, Pastor.” The minister retorted: “Then how come I don’t see you except at Christmas and Easter?” Dewey replied in a whisper: “Well, I’m in the secret service.”
Off to the vet
In his younger days our golden retriever Catcher often ran away when he had the chance. The vet’s surgery was about a mile down the road, and Catcher would usually go there. The nursing staff knew him and would call me to come pick him up. One day I called the vet to make an appointment for Catcher’s yearly vaccine. “Will you bring him,” asked the receptionist, “or will he come on his own?”

Do what we can to help…
Several women in the church prayer group were visiting an elderly friend who was ill. After awhile, they rose to leave and told her; “We’ll do what we can to help. We promise to keep you in our prayers.”
“Thank you,” she said. “But, really, I can do my own praying. The thing I can’t do is the dishes in the sink in the kitchen….”

Romance, marriage and all that stuff – the way children see it….
How do you decide whom to marry?
You got to find somebody who likes the same stuff. Like, if you like sports, she should like it that you like sports, and she should keep the crisps and dip coming. – Alan, age 10

No person really decides before they grow up who they’re going to marry. God decides it all way before, and you get to find out later who you’re stuck with. – Kirsten, age 10

What is the right age to get married?
23 is the best age because you know the person FOREVER by then. – Camille, age 10

No age is good to get married at. You got to be a fool to get married. – Freddie, age 6

Definition of old
Grandchildren don’t make a man feel old; it’s the knowledge that he’s married to a grandmother.
