Isn’t It Strange?

Yes, Indeed… It is Strange
I enjoyed the following that someone wrote. It seems to do a pretty good job of describing what we deal with in our human nature.

  • Isn't it strange how a $20 bill seems like such a large amount when you donate it to church, but such a small amount when you go shopping?
  • Isn't it strange how 2 hours seem so long when you're at church, and seem so short when you're watching a good movie?
  • Isn't it strange that you can't find a word to say when you're praying but... you have no trouble finding things to talk about with a friend?
  • Isn't it strange how boring & hard it is to read 1 chapter of the Bible but how easy it is to read 100 pages of a popular novel?
  • Isn't it strange how everyone wants front-row-tickets to concerts or games but do whatever is possible to sit in the last row in Church?
  • Isn't it strange how we need to know 2-3 weeks ahead about a Church event so we can fit it into our schedule, but we can adjust it at the last minute for other events ?
  • Isn't it strange how difficult it is to learn a fact about God & share it with others but how easy it is to learn, extend & repeat gossip?
  • Isn't it strange how we believe everything magazines & newspapers say but.... we question the words in the Bible?
  • Isn't it strange how everyone wants a place in heaven... but they don't want to believe, do, or say anything to get there?

In one of our hymns, we sing,

“Then let me choose as I would choose
When time and seasons are no more.”

And in another hymn we sing,

“Help me see things now as I'll one day see,
When my life ends and I go hence;”

May we develop a vision that we could see how to make the right choices today.

Today is February 29. It’s an extra day that we get every four years. So we all have 24 extra hours this year that we have not had for the past 3 years.

Use time wisely.

Saying thank you is more than good manners. 
It is good spirituality.

Joke of the Day

A lot of folks can't understand how we came to have an oil shortage here in our country. Well, there's a very simple answer. Nobody bothered to check the oil.

We just didn't know we were getting low. The reason for that is purely geographical. Our OIL is located in: Alaska, California, Coastal Florida, Coastal Louisiana, Coastal Alabama, Coastal Mississippi, Coastal Texas, North Dakota, Wyoming, Colorado, Kansas, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, and Texas.

And our Dipsticks are located in Washington DC
