On the Lighter Side

     For those of you who have been reading my posts for these lasts months I want to say, I really am not a ” Jonathan Edwards, ‘Sinners in the Hands Of An Angry God” kind of guy. Granted I am not the life of the party either. But I try not to be a chronic doom-sayer.

     I wrote the series “Like Men of Issachar” to provide a biblical reference point for WHEN we are in the world. I felt compelled to write. Honestly though, at times writing the posts got a little cloying even to my mind and I don’t cloy easily. I hope someone out there found some help from it.

      It is time though for some spring cleaning. For the next few weeks I am going to take a little break from the eschatology, Christology, hermeneutics and all the other -ologies and  -ics you can think of . That doesn’t mean God won’t shine here. He’s the light behind every lampshade I put up. I just think it’s time to spend a little brain-space on the lighter side. Soooo…

     Anybody got a good joke?

  1. I always take away from your posts, especially when you make me think. Looking forward to whatever you bring next. Working on finding the perfect joke…between packing boxes for my pending move. Ha! Joke’s on me! I dread moving. Blessings. -kim

    • Thank you for reminding me to write what the Lord puts on my heart. I do pray to that end everyday. I guess sometimes I just wonder if I have hit a target or not. As to God having a sense of humor. He is the funniest person I know!

    Remember when President Obama said we can’t fight two wars and vowed to change our policy? Well, he did. Now we’re fighting three wars.

    Obama said we will send economic aid to Libya to help the Libyan people reach their dreams. And if that works, they’ll try it here.
