DAILY ENCOURAGEMENT FRIDAY - A JOYFUL HEART. #6


A joyful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones. - Pro 17:22.

"He who dies with the most toys is, nonetheless, still dead!"

Another working week is just about gone, and boy, are we looking forward to the weekend! This has been an interesting week in many ways, some ups, some downs, but, praise the Lord, if we were not Christians, it could be a dull weekend!

Think of it, more time to spend with the family and friends, doing all those little things that need to be done, more leisure, more reading, and maybe more blogging! And then to top it all off... CHURCH on Sunday! Hallelujah! Here are a few laughs/thoughts to keep you going till then...

ONE LINERS:

"Seen it all, done it all, can't remember most of it!"
"Beat the 5 o'clock rush: Leave work at noon!"
"What happens if you get scared half to death twice?"
"Don't let worry kill you off--let the Church help."
"I don't have to attend every argument I'm invited to!"
"If you want your spouse to listen and pay strict attention to every word you say, talk in your sleep."
"We're having creative differences. I'm creative, you're different!"
"If you look like your passport picture, you probably need the trip."
"Sometimes the majority only means that all the fools are on the same side."
---------------------------------------
A Sunday school teacher was telling her class the story of the Good Samaritan, in which a man was beaten, robbed and left for dead. She described the situation in vivid detail so her students would catch the drama.

Then, she asked the class, "If you saw a person lying on the roadside, all wounded and bleeding, what would you do?"

A thoughtful little girl broke the hushed silence, "I think I'd throw up."
-------------------------------------------
YOU WILL NEVER BE SORRY
....for thinking before acting
....for hearing all the facts before judging
....for being a forgiving person
....for being candid and frank
....for being helpful
....for being honest
....for thinking before speaking
....for standing by your principles
....for closing your ears to gossip
....for not gossiping
....for not allowing anger and resentment to upset your life
....for giving without expecting a return
....for sympathizing with the afflicted
....for being courteous and kind to all.

HOW DO YOU GET INTO HEAVEN?
"If I sold my house and my car, had a big garage sale and gave all my money to the church, would that get me into Heaven?" a teacher asked the children in her Sunday School Class. "NO!" the children all answered.

"If I cleaned the church every day, mowed the yard, and kept everything neat and tidy, would that get me into Heaven?" Again, the answer was, "NO!"

"Well, then, if I was kind to animals and gave candy to all the children, and loved my husband, would that get me into Heaven?" she asked them again. Again, they all answered, "NO!"

"Well," she continued, "then how can I get into Heaven?"

A five-year-old boy shouted out, "YOU GOTTA BE DEAD!"

HAVE A GREAT AND GODLY WEEKEND!
