Sometimes Ya Have to Lighten Up

| October 10, 2008 | 1 Comment

I’ve been working real hard lately trying to build up my article count on the various sites I write for. My inspiration is three-fold.

  1. The current state of the economy.
  2. Writers like Maria O’Brien who are earning an ever growing residual income through eHow and
  3. My son’s uncanny ability to create an unexpected large financial need every time we think we’re getting a little ahead.

My dogged determination and focus to build my foundation of articles pulled me away from my daily blogging here. You know how it goes; sometimes you’ve got to take from Peter in order to pay Paul. Well, today I’m doing my part to give a little back to Peter.

Honestly speaking, I think I’m taking myself a little too seriously. I’ve set lofty goals and intend to accomplish them, but I do have to take a little time to lighten up. I need a little smell the roses time. To that end, I want to share a little water cooler humor with you. After all, it is Friday.


A new pastor was visiting in the homes of his parishioners. At one house it seemed obvious that someonePhoto by Angel13 was at home, but no answer came to his repeated knocks at the door. Therefore, he took out a business card and wrote “Revelation 3:20” on the back of it and stuck it in the door.

When the offering was processed the following Sunday, he found that his card had been returned. Added to it was this cryptic message, “Genesis 3:10.”

Reaching for his Bible to check out the citation, he broke up in gales of laughter. Revelation 3:20 begins “Behold, I stand at the door and knock.” Genesis 3:10 reads, “I heard your voice in the garden and I was afraid for I was naked.”

“A cheerful heart is good medicine” (Prov. 17:22)

I guess we all need to lighten up every once in a while.

Have a great Friday!

    I fully agree! You should dedicate 8 hours to sleep, 8 hours to work, and 8 hours to play every day.
