Jokes with real facts..

Husband & Wife - Why divorce?

In a divorce court a woman requested the judge:
"Your honor, I want to divorce my husband."
"But why ?" asked the judge.
She replied, "Because he is not faithful to me."
The judge asked, "How do you know ?"
She replied, "My lord, not a single child
resembles him."

Husband & Wife - Love Your Enemy
From his death bed, the husband called his wife

marry Samy."

"Yes, I know that ! I've suffered all these years
so let him suffer now."

"Aren't you wearing your wedding ring on the wrong
finger? "
The other replied, "Yes I am, I married the wrong
man."

Husband & Wife - Why?

to my wife I'd be home that night, and when I got
into my room I found my wife in another man's arms.
"Why, Dad ? Tell me why!"
Dad kept silent for a few minutes, then coolly said,
"Maybe, Son, she didn't get the fax."

Husband & Wife - Same Service
A husband visited a marriage counselor and said,
"When we were first married, I would come home
from the office, my wife would bring my slippers and

Follow the bubbles....

Vern Treat tells about a scuba diver who said that "when you're in deep water, you're encircled by light, so there's no way you can tell which way is up because the water diffuses the light. You're also totally weightless, so you have no sense of gravity.

"Surrounded in an aura of light and weightlessness, it's very easy to lose all sense of direction and get disoriented. You may sense that this way is up and that your air bubbles are going sideways. You may be so convinced that your perception is true that you decide to ignore your bubbles and go the way you think is up. I wouldn't be surprised if some divers have drowned because of this. One of the first things we were told when learning to scuba-dive was to always trust your bubbles—to always follow your bubbles. No matter how you feel, no matter what you think, your bubbles are always right."

Life can be like that at times too. If we base the rules of life on our feelings and/or perception, we can be very easily led astray. The philosophy, "If it feels good it must be right," is a dangerous guide to follow because our feelings can play all sorts of tricks on us. If something is wrong, it is wrong regardless of how we feel. True, it's important that we don't deny or repress our feelings because we can learn to trust them—but what we can't always trust is our interpretation of them or understand what they are telling us.

So in life the only safe guide to follow when it comes to fruitful and successful living is to trust GOD's word. Therein lie the "bubbles of life" to follow. These "bubbles" are always right. Always! Never fails.

The little things ..


"Catch for us the foxes, the little foxes that ruin the vineyards, our vineyards that are in bloom."

A four-hundred-year-old tree crashed to the forest floor. Over the centuries it had been struck by lightning fourteen times, braved great windstorms, and even defied an earthquake. In the end, however, it was killed by little beetles. Boring under the bark, they chewed away its mighty fibers until the giant of the forest lay broken on the ground.

Little things can either make us or break us. A little lie, a little theft, a little laziness, a little neglect, a little drink a little too often, a little sarcasm, a little denial here and a little there ... bit by bit we can add them all together and eventually hurt or destroy our relationships, our physical and/or mental health.

On the other hand, a little smile, a little deed of kindness, a little encouraging word, a little thoughtful gift, a little phone call, a little bit of love given a lot of times every day can add up to a whole lot of sunshine that we can spread wherever we are and go—and in so doing encourage others, enhance our relationships, improve our physical and mental health.

It is important to watch the many little things in our life. It is also equally important to clean out all the 'little' sins and self-destructive habits that hurt ourselves and others. We have to keep on practicing little acts of love and kindness until they become an everyday habit. We need to shower our love to others and act with great compassion.

Encouragement

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another."

Guess you are aware that geese fly in "V" formation but do you know why ?. Well, the answer can be a good reminder for us as humans.

As each bird flaps its wings, it creates uplift for the bird immediately following. By doing this, the whole flock adds at least 71 percent greater flying range than if each bird flew on its own.
When a goose falls out of formation, it suddenly feels the drag and resistance of trying to go it alone—and quickly gets back into formation to take advantage of the lifting power of the bird in front.

When the head goose gets tired, it rotates back and another goose flies point. Also, the following geese honk from behind to encourage those up front to keep on keeping on and to keep up their speed.

Also, when a goose gets sick or is wounded by gunshot, and falls out of formation, two other geese fall out with that goose and follow it down to lend help and protection. They stay with the fallen goose until it is able to fly or until it dies, and only then do they launch out on their own, or with another formation to catch up with their group.

We would definately do well to follow the example of the geese.
