Sunday Smiles- With A Twist - Again

At Spiritually Unequal Marriage we explore many difficult and serious topics. We can feel overwhelmed with the seriousness of life because our struggles are sometimes enormous. Because of this fact, I want to share the joy of the Lord with you as well.

Hope you are intrigued by this interesting optical illusion.

Opticalillusions_3

The first time I looked at this picture I was only able to see the young woman. Do you see the old woman or the young woman? Look carefully. Things are not always as they appear. I find this is so true in the work of our Lord. Often, we can't see what is really going on, however, the Lord sees.

1 Samuel 16:7 (New International Version) But the LORD said to Samuel, "Do not consider his appearance or his height, for I have rejected him. The LORD does not look at the things man looks at. Man looks at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart."

Psalm 118:24 This is the day the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.


A wife was making a breakfast of fried eggs for her husband. Suddenly, her husband burst into the kitchen. 'Careful,' he said, 'CAREFUL! Put in some more butter! Oh my gosh! You're cooking too many at once. TOO MANY! Turn them! TURN THEM NOW! We need more butter. Oh my gosh! WHERE are we going to get MORE BUTTER? They're going to STICK! Careful. CAREFUL! I said be CAREFUL! You NEVER listen to me when you're cooking! Never! Turn them! Hurry up! Are you CRAZY? Have you LOST your mind? Don't forget to salt them. You know you always forget to salt them. Use the! salt. USE THE SALT! THE SALT!' The wife stared at him.

'What in the world is wrong with you? You think I don't know how to fry a couple of eggs?'

The husband calmly replied, 'I just wanted to show you what it feels like when I'm driving.'


Praise the LORD and laugh out loud today!

After the service a young couple talked to me about joining the church. I hadn't met the husband before, and I asked what church he was transferring from. After a short hesitation, he replied, "I am transferring from the Municipal Golf Course."

Albert

An old man was shopping with his grandson. The boy was crying and at times screaming at the top of his lungs.

As the old gentleman walked up and down the aisles, people could hear him speaking in a soft voice...

"We are almost done, Albert... Try not to cry, Albert... Life will get better, Albert..."

As he approached the checkout stand, he carefully brushed the boy's tears from his eyes and said again, “try not to cry, Albert... We will be home soon, Albert...”

As he was paying the cashier, his grandson continued to cry. A young woman in line behind him said, "Sir, I think it is wonderful how sweet you are being to little Albert."

The old gentleman blinked his eyes a couple of times before saying, "Miss, my grandson's name is Hunter...

I'm Albert......................................."

The Church Gossip

Mildred, the church gossip, and self-appointed monitor of the church's morals, kept sticking her nose in to other people's business.

Several members did not approve of her extra curricular activities, but feared her enough to maintain their silence.

She made a mistake, however, when she accused George, a new member, of being an alcoholic after she saw his old pickup parked in front of the town's only bar one afternoon.

She emphatically told George (and several others) that everyone seeing it there would know what he was doing. George, a man of few words, stared at her for a moment and just turned and walked away.

He didn't explain, defend, or deny... he said nothing.

Later that evening, George quietly parked his pickup in front of Mildred's house... walked home... and left it there all night.

Ya gotta love George.

Proverbs 11:13 (NIV) A gossip betrays a confidence, but a trustworthy man keeps a secret.

Proverbs 16:28
A perverse man stirs up dissension, and a gossip separates close friends.

Proverbs 18:8
The words of a gossip are like choice morsels; they go down to a man's inmost parts.

Proverbs 20:19
A gossip betrays a confidence; so avoid a man who talks too much.

Proverbs 26:20
Without wood a fire goes out; without gossip a quarrel dies down.

Proverbs 26:22
The words of a gossip are like choice morsels; they go down to a man's inmost parts.

EVER WONDER?

Why the sun lightens our hair, but darkens our skin?

Why women can't put on mascara with their mouth closed?

Why is 'abbreviated' such a long word?

Why is it that doctors call what they do 'practice'?

Why is lemon juice made with artificial flavor, and dishwashing liquid made with real lemons?

Why is the man who invests all your money called a broker?

Why is the time of day with the slowest traffic called rush hour?

Why isn't there mouse-flavored cat food?

You know that indestructible black box that is used on airplanes? Why don't they make the whole plane out of that stuff?!

Why don't sheep shrink when it rains?

Why are they called apartments when they are all stuck together?

If flying is so safe, why do they call the airport the terminal?

Why didn't Noah swat those two mosquitoes?

Sunday Smiles - What She Really Means

At Spiritually Unequal Marriage we explore many difficult and serious topics. We can feel overwhelmed with the seriousness of life because our struggles are sometimes enormous. Because of this fact, I want to share the joy of the Lord with you as well.

Psalm 118:24 This is the day the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.
What She Really Means
At long last... The Men's Guide to what a woman really means when she says something. Pay close attention (there might be a quiz later).

You want = You want

We need = I want

It's your decision = The correct decision should be obvious by now.

Do what you want = You'll pay for this later.

We need to talk = I need to complain

Sure... go ahead = I don't want you to.

I'm not upset = Of course I'm upset, you moron!

You're so manly = You need a shave and you sweat a lot.

You're certainly attentive tonight. = Is sex all you ever think about?

I'm not emotional! And I'm not overreacting! = I'm on my period.

Be romantic, turn out the lights. = I have flabby thighs.

This kitchen is so inconvenient = I want a new house.

I want new curtains = and carpeting, and furniture, and wallpaper.....

I need wedding shoes = the other 40 pairs are the wrong shade of white.

Hang the picture there = NO, I mean hang it there!

I heard a noise = I noticed you were almost asleep.

Do you love me? = I'm going to ask for something expensive.

How much do you love me? = I did something today you're really not going to like.

I'll be ready in a minute. = Kick off your shoes and find a good game on T.V.

Is my butt fat? = Tell me I'm beautiful.

You have to learn to communicate. = Just agree with me.

Are you listening to me!? = [Too late, you're dead.]

Yes = No

No = No

Maybe = No

I'm sorry. = You'll be sorry.

Do you like this recipe? = It's easy to fix, so you'd better get used to it.

Was that the baby? = Why don't you get out of bed and walk him until he goes to sleep.

I'm not yelling! = Yes I am yelling because I think this is important.

Cat

Yesterday I received this picture via e-mail. This poor cat is determined not to have a bath. She is desperately clutching the faucet for dear life even though a bath would make her smell and feel better.

I had to chuckle and consider myself not all that different. I have held tight to things Jesus has told me to let go. I refused to listen because I was afraid of the deep water. I was afraid to trust.

Oh, but when I finally stepped in with Jesus at my side, the water wasn’t all that bad. I emerged with Jesus toweling my hair. I am a better person for the experience I mean the bath. Bet you have been there too!

Have a great Sunday. See you here on Monday for my next post on Spiritual Warfare.

Be Blessed, Lynn

All I Really Need To Know I Learned from Noah and the Ark:

1. Don't miss the boat.
2. Try to remember that we're all in the same boat.
3. Plan ahead. It wasn't raining when Noah built the ark, you know.
4. Stay fit. When you're 600 years old, someone might ask you to do something REALLY big.
5. Don't listen to critics, just get on with what has to be done.
6. Build your future on high ground.
7. For safety's sake, travel in pairs.
8. Two heads are better than one.
9. Speed isn't always an advantage; after all, the snails were on board with the cheetahs.
10. When you're stressed, try floating awhile.
11. Remember that the ark was built by amateurs; it was the Titanic that was built by professionals.
12. Remember that woodpeckers inside are a larger threat than storms outside.
13. No matter what the difficulty, trust in the Almighty: There'll be a rainbow at the end of the storm.

Hope you are tickled by this silly joke, lost chapter in Genesis.

Here is the LOST CHAPTER IN GENESIS....

Adam was walking around the garden of Eden feeling very lonely, so God asked him, "What is wrong with you?"

Adam said he didn't have anyone to talk to.

God said that He was going to make Adam a companion and that it would be a woman.

He said, "This person will gather food for you, cook for you, and when you discover clothing she'll wash it for you. She will always agree with every decision you make. She will bear your children and never ask you to get up in the middle of the night to take care of them. She will not nag you and will always be the first to admit she was wrong when you've had a disagreement. She will never have a headache and will freely give you love and passion whenever you need it.

Adam asked God, "What will a woman like this cost?"

God replied, "An arm and a leg."

Then Adam asked, "What can I get for a rib?" The rest is history..


Have a blessed Sunday. Love you much, Lynn

The Sunday School Teacher asks, "Now, tell me Cindy, do you say prayers before eating?"

"No sir," Little Cindy replies, "I don't have to. My Mom is a good cook."


I thought this was hilarious since last week was a crazy week in my life. Hope you appreciate it as well.

Don't let your worries get the best of you; remember, Moses started out as a basket case.

I love to giggle, smile, grin and especially laugh out loud (too loudly, if you ask my daughter). Laughter is medicine for our souls and a gift from God who has a vast and wonderful sense of humor.

Laughter can change a foul mood, lift a heavy spirit and make the day light. So beginning today and every Sunday, let’s share a smile.Bumper3

It is not my intention in any way to diminish the importance or focus of the Sabbath. It is my intention to share a laugh or a funny story to delight your heart on the Lord's Day. It is my prayer that your joy will overflow into your marriage and family every Sunday.

Welcome to Sunday Smiles:

A few months ago I stumbled across this bumper sticker. It is a hoot. Enjoy!

Also, I crack up over our children and their honest approaches. Smile!

The preacher was wired for sound with a lapel mike, and as he preached he moved briskly about the platform, jerking the mike cord as he went. Then he moved to one side, getting wound up in the cord and nearly tripping before jerking it again. After several circles and jerks, a little girl in the third pew leaned toward her mother and whispered, "If he gets loose, will he hurt us?"

A little boy opened the big and old family Bible with fascination, looking at the old pages as he turned them. Then something fell out of the Bible and he picked it up and looked at it closely. It was an old leaf from a tree that had been pressed in between the pages. "Momma, look what I found," the boy called out. "What have you got there, dear; his mother asked. With astonishment in the young boy's voice he answered, "It's Adam's suit!!

A 4-year-old boy was nosily squirming all through the church service. His father tried several times to quiet him, but to no avail. Just as I was asking for prayer requests, the boy let out a loud yell. His father, obviously at the end of his rope, picked up the boy, tossed him over his shoulder and headed out of the sanctuary. When he was nearly out the door, I continued asking if there were any more requests when this little voice yelled desperately from across the threshold, "Oh, please pray for me!"
