Funny Friday Quote (A dollar a week)

Funny Friday Quote:  A dollar a week

     “When I was a pastor of the Little Brown Chruch, I was greatly annoyed by Karl Neufeld, and elderly memeber, who fell asleep during my sermon every Sunday.  So, after service one day, I said to his grandson who always accompanied the senior citizen, “If you can keep the old man awake, I’ll pay you a dollar.”

     This worked for two weeks; the aged man was very alert and listened to the sermons attentively.  On the third Sunday, however, there he was, up to his old tricks, sound asleep in his pew.

     After the service I called the boy over and said, “I am disappointed in you.  Didn’t I promise you a dollar a week to keep your grandfather awake?”

     “Yes, replied the boy, “but Grandpa gives me five not to disturb him.”

Bible verse of the day:  Psalm 104:1

“Bless the LORD, O my soul!  O LORD my God, You are vey great:  You are clothed with honor and majesty,”


Dear Heavenly Father,

The weeks are flying by and I can’t believe that we only have 8 1/2 more months left here in Dallas.  Father, I pray for the time remaining that Jeff and I soak up all that You have to teach us, and equip us with all that we need to carry out Your mission.  I thank You for this beautiful day and I ask a special prayer for those that may be in the path of the hurricane. 

In Jesus Name I pray,
