Jokes that can be told in church...

Attending a wedding for the first time, a little girl
whispered to her mother, 'Why is the bride dressed in
white?'' The mother replied, 'Because white is the color
of happiness, and today is the happiest day of her
life.' The child thought about this for a moment then said, 
'So why is the groom wearing black?'


A little girl, dressed in her Sunday best, was running
as fast as she could, trying not to be late for Bible
As she ran she prayed, 'Dear Lord, please don't let me
be late! Dear Lord, please don't let me be late!'
While she was running and praying, she tripped on a curb
and fell, getting her clothes dirty and tearing her
dress. She got up, brushed herself off, and started
running again! As she ran she once again began to pray,
'Dear Lord, please don't let me be late...but please
don't shove me either!'


Three boys are in the school yard bragging about their
fathers. The first boy says, 'My Dad scribbles a few
words on a piece of paper, he calls it a poem, they give
him $50..'
The second boy says, 'That's nothing. My Dad scribbles a
few words on piece of paper, he calls it a song, they
give him $100.'
The third boy says, 'I got you both beat. My Dad
scribbles a few words on a piece of paper, he calls it a
sermon, and it takes eight people to collect all the


An elderly woman died last month. Having never married ,
she requested no male pallbearers. In her handwritten
instructions for her memorial service, she wrote, 'They
wouldn't take me out while I was alive, I don't want
them to take me out when I'm dead.'


A police recruit was asked during the exam, 'What would
you do if you had to arrest your own mother?' He
answered, 'Call for backup.'


A Sunday School teacher asked her class why Joseph and
Mary took Jesus with them to Jerusalem .. A small child
replied, 'They couldn't get a baby-sitter.'


A Sunday school teacher was discussing the Ten
Commandments with her five and six year olds. After
explaining the commandment to 'Honor thy father and thy
mother,' she asked, 'Is there a commandment that teaches
us how to treat our brothers and sisters?' Without
missing a beat, one little boy answered, 'Thou shall not


At Sunday School they were teaching how God created
everything, including human beings. Little Johnny seemed
especially intent when they told him how Eve was created
out of one of Adam's ribs.
Later in the week his mother noticed him lying down as
though he were ill, and she said, 'Johnny, what is the
matter?' Little Johnny responded, 'I have pain in my
side. I think I'm going to have a wife..'


Two boys were walking home from Sunday school after
hearing a strong preaching on the devil. One said to the
other, 'What do you think about all this Satan stuff?'
The other boy replied, 'Well, you know how Santa Claus
turned out. It's probably just your Dad.'


You don't stop laughing because you grow old. You grow
old because you stop laughing! I thought you would
enjoy this....times are tough right now.....for all of we need something to make the day a happy place.
"They" haven't found a way to tax you for laughing yet.

What Religion is Your Bra?

A man walked into the ladies department of a Macy's

and shyly walked up to

the woman behind the counter and said,

'I'd like to buy a bra for my wife. '

' What type of bra?'

asked the clerk.

'Type?' inquires the man, 'There's more than one type?'
' Look around,'

said the saleslady,

as she showed a sea of bras in every shape, size, colour

and material imaginable.

'Actually, even with all of this variety, there are really only four types of bras to choose from .'

Relieved, the man asked

about the types.

The saleslady replied:

'There are the Catholic,

the Salvation Army,

the Presbyterian,

and the Baptist types.

Which one would you prefer?'

Now totally befuddled,

the man asked about

the differences between them.

The Saleslady responded,

'It is all really quite simple. ...

The Catholic type supports the masses;

The Salvation Army type lifts the fallen;

The Presbyterian type keeps them staunch and upright;

The Baptist type makes mountains out of molehills.'

Have you ever wondered why A, B, C, D, DD, E, F, G, and H are the letters used

to define bra sizes?

If you have wondered why,

but couldn't figure out

what the letters stood for,

it is about time

you became informed!

(A} Almost Boobs... 
{B} Barely there...
{C} Can't Complain!....
{D} Dang!....
{DD} Double dang!...
{E} Enormous!...
{F} Fake...
{G} Get a Reduction...
{H} Help me, I've fallen

and I can't get up!...

They forgot the German bra.


Ok, ladies, time to get a breast exam or your mamograms! Take care of them!

Matthew 10:32

No one 
falls in love by choice, it is by CHANCE.

No one 
stays in love by chance, it is by WORK.


And no 
one falls out of love by chance, it is by CHOICE



Matthew 10:32...
'Whoever acknowledges Me before men, I will acknowledge him before My 
Father in heaven.  But whoever disowns Me before men, I will disown him
before My Father in heaven.'

Here's some all natural advice!

Here are some natural remedies that seem much better than spending an arm and a leg on medicine for. Thanks Mom! Go Green!

Eliminate ear mites ... All it takes is a few drops of Wes son Corn Oil in your cat's or dog's ear, massage it in, then clean with a cotton ball. Repeat daily for 3 days. The oil soothes the cat's skin, smothers the mites and accelerates healing. 

Kill fleas instantly ... Dawn Dishwashing Liquid does the trick. Add a few drops to your dog's bath and shampoo the animal thoroughly. Rinse well to avoid skin irritations. Good-bye fleas. 

Rainy day cure for dog odor ... Next time your dog comes in from the rain, simply wipe down the animal with Bounce or any dryer sheet, instantly making your dog smell springtime fresh. 

Did you know that drinking two glasses of Gatorade can relieve headache pain almost immediately - without the unpleasant side effects caused by traditional pain relievers? 

Did you know that Colgate Toothpaste makes an excellent salve for burns? 

Before you head to the drugstore for a high-priced inhaler filled with mysterious chemicals, try chewing on a couple of curiously strong Altoids peppermints. They'll clear up your stuffed nose. 

Achy muscles from a bout of the flu? Mix 1 tablespoon horseradish in 1 cup of olive oil. Let the mixture sit for 30 minutes, then apply it as amassage oil for instant relief for aching muscles. 

Sore throat? Just mix 1/4 cup of vinegar with 1/4 cup of honey and take 1 tablespoon six times a day. The vinegar kills the bacteria. 

Cure urinary tract infections with Alka-Seltzer. Just dissolve two tablets in a glass of water and drink it at the onset of the symptoms. Alka-Seltzer begins eliminating urinary tract infections almost instantly - even though the product was never been advertised for this use. 

oney remedy for skin blemishes ... Cover the blemish with a dab of honey and place a Band-Aid over it.
 Honey kills the bacteria, keeps the skin sterile and speeds healing. Works overnight. 

Listerine therapy for toenail fungus ... Get rid of unsightly toenail fungus by soaking your toes in Listerine Mouthwash. The powerful antiseptic leaves your toenails looking healthy again. 

Easy eyeglass protection ... To prevent the screws in eyeglasses from loosening, apply a small drop of Maybelline Crystal Clear Nail Polish to the threads of the screws before tightening them. 

Cleaning liquid that doubles as bug killer ... If menacing bees, wasps, hornets, or yellow jackets get in your home and you can't find the insecticide, try a spray of Formula 409. Insects drop to the ground instantly. 

Smart splinter remover ... Just pour a drop of Elmer's Glue-All over the splinter, let dry and peel the dried glue off the skin. The splinter sticks to the dried glue. 

Hunt's Tomato Paste boil cure ... Cover the boil with Hunt's Tomato Paste as a compress. The acids from the tomatoes soothe the pain and bring the boil to a head. 

Balm for broken blisters ... To disinfect a broken blister, dab on a few drops of Listerinea powerful antiseptic. 

Vinegar to heal bruises ... Soak a cotton ball in white vinegar and apply it to the bruise for 1 hour. The vinegar reduces the blueness and speeds up the healing process. 

Quaker Oats for fast pain relief ... It's not for breakfast anymore! Mix 2 cups of Quaker Oats and 1 cup of water in a bowl and warm in the microwave for 1 minute, cool slightly and apply the mixture to your hands for soothing relief from arthritis pain.

Wordful Wednesday

Grandma's Hands - author unknown

"Grandma, some ninety plus years, sat feebly on the patio bench. She didn't move, just sat with her head down staring at her hands.

When I sat down beside her she didn't acknowledge my presence and the longer I sat I wondered if she was OK.

Finally, not really wanting to disturb her but wanting to check on her at the same time, I asked her if she was OK. She raised her head and looked at me and smiled. "Yes, I'm fine, thank you for asking," she said in a voice clear and strong.

"I didn't mean to disturb you, grandma, but you were just sitting here staring at your hands and I wanted to make sure you were OK," I explained to her.

"Have you ever looked at your hands," she asked. "I mean really looked at your hands?"

I slowly opened my hands and stared down at them. I turned them over, palms up and then palms down. No, I guess I had never really looked at my hands I thought, as I tried to figure out the point she was making.

Grandma smiled and related this story:

"Stop and think for a moment about the hands you have, how they have served you well throughout your years. These hands, though wrinkled shriveled and weak have been the tools I have used all my life to reach out and grab and embrace life.

They braced and caught my fall when as a toddler I crashed upon the floor. They put food in my mouth and clothes on my back. As a child, my mother taught me to fold them in prayer. They tied my shoes and pulled on my boots. They held my husband and wiped my tears when he went off to war.

They have been dirty, scraped and raw, swollen and bent. They were uneasy and clumsy when I tried to hold my newborn son. Decorated with my wedding band they showed the world that I was married and loved someone special.

They wrote my letters to him and trembled and shook when I buried my parents and my spouse. They have held my children and grandchildren, consoled neighbors, and shook in fists of anger when I didn't understand.

They have covered my face, combed my hair, and washed and cleansed the rest of my body. They have been sticky and wet, bent and broken, dried and raw. And to this day, when not much of anything else of me works real well, these hands hold me up, lay me down, and again continue to fold in prayer.

These hands are the mark of where I've been and the ruggedness of life. But more importantly, it will be these hands that God will reach out and take when He leads me home. And with my hands He will lift me to His side and there I will use these hands to touch the face of Christ."

I will never look at my hands the same again. But I remember God reached out and took my grandma's hands and led her home.

When my hands are hurt or sore, or when I stroke the face of my children or husband I think of grandma. I know she has been stroked and caressed and held by the hands of God. I, too, want to touch the face of God and feel His hands upon my face.

I sure do miss your hands Abuela!
