Birds, Flues, Fires, Grass, and Tires

  Bird Watching “Today we are talking about politics,” the teacher told her class.  “Does anyone have something to say about politics?” “I have something to say,” said one little girl.  “My father has a parrot and we call her Polly.  One day Polly ate my father’s watch.  Now Polly ticks.”   Farmer’s Flu Farm Jones was sitting in the cafe having a cup of coffee when Farmer Brown walked in.  “It’s been a while since I’ve seen you.”  he said to his friend. “Yeah,” replied Farmer Brown.  “I’ve had a real bad bout with the flu.  first the doctor thought I had bird flu, so he gave me the regular tweetment.  When that did not do any good, he decided it must be the swine ful.  So he gave me some special oinkment.” Fighting Fire A few years ago, I was teaching Sunday school to kids ages 5-8.  After we had finished the story in which God sends the fire down from heaven, I decided to find out how closely they had listened. “What did God send down from heaven?”  I asked don little boy.

Only God Can . . .

Only GOD can turn a MESS into a MESSage, a TEST into a TESTimony, a TRIal into a TRIumph, a VICTim into a VICTory. GOD is GOOD... all the time! ******************************************   "Casting all your care upon Him; for He careth for you." --1 Peter 5:7 Nothing is so sweet as to: "Lie passive in God's hands, And know no will but His." If God cares for you, why need you care too? Can you trust Him for your soul, and not for your body? He has never refused to bear your burdens, He has never fainted under their weight. Come, then, soul! have done with fretful care, and leave all thy concerns in the hand of a gracious God. ~Spurgeon's Morning and Evening Devotional
