Disappointments should be cremated, not embalmed. - Quips & Quotes, E. C. McKenzie


By Larry F. Jones

About two thousand years ago
There was a virgin birth
That's when my Lord and savior
Was placed upon this earth

It wasn't very long
Before his power was shown
The wonders that he wrought
This world had never known

He was feared by the priests
And hated by the kings
When deserted by his followers
Felt the sorrow loneliness brings

Then he prayed to his father
In a garden called gethsemene
About the coming day
When they would nail him to a tree

Then they crucified my Lord
Tho no blame could they see
It wasn't the nails that kept him there
It was his love for me

They placed him in a borrowed tomb
Innocent Jesus was laid to rest
From there he met the devil
And put him to the test

There he defeated death
For all eternity
Once again my risen Lord
Has shown his love for me

A professor stood before his class of 20 senior organic biology students, about to hand out the final exam.

"I want to say that it's been a pleasure teaching you this semester. I know you've all worked extremely hard and many of you are off to medical school after summer. So that no one gets their GPA messed up because they might have been celebrating a bit too much this week, anyone who would like to opt out of the final exam today will receive a "B" for the course."

There was much rejoicing amongst the class as students got up, passed by the professor to thank him and sign out on his offer. As the last taker left the room, the professor looked out over the handful of remaining students and asked, "Any one else? This is your last chance." One final student rose up and took the offer.

The professor closed the door and took attendance of those students remaining. "I'm glad to see you believe in yourself." he said. "You all have "A"s."

Not long ago we were in the car with our daughter-in-law and her two girls. In the middle of a discussion about babies, 4-year-old Madison asked, "Mommy, why is it that Oma (Dutch for "Grandma") has no babies?"

"Well," said her mother, "she has had four baby boys, but they are all grown up. Your daddy was the youngest baby of your Oma."

Madison paused, then said, "Oh, Oma and Opa, thank you very much for giving me my good daddy!" - Leslie Keizer
