Time to put a smile on your face :)

Once again, got this forwarded e-mail from mummy dearest. These short jokes are some Christian humour for you to enjoy!

1. There was a very gracious lady who was mailing an old family Bible to her brother in another part of the country. 'Is there anything breakable in here?' asked the postal clerk. 'Only the Ten Commandments.' answered the lady.

2. 'Somebody has said there are only two kinds of people in the world. There are those who wake up in the morning and say, 'Good morning, Lord,' and there are those who wake up in the morning and say, 'Good Lord, it's morning.'

3. A minister parked his car in a no-parking zone in a large city because he was short of time and couldn't find a space with a meter. Then he put a note under the windshield wiper that read: 'I have circled the block 10 times. If I don't park here, I'll miss my appointment. Forgive us our trespasses.' When he returned, he found a citation from a police officer along with this note 'I've circled this block for 10 years. If I don't give you a ticket I'll lose my job. Lead us not into temptation.'

4. There is the story of a pastor who got up one Sunday and announced to his congregation: 'I have good news and bad news. The good news is, we have enough money to pay for our new building program. The bad news is, it's still out there in your pockets.'

5. A Sunday School teacher began her lesson with a question, 'Boys and girls, what do we know about God?' A hand shot up in the air. 'He is an artist!' said the kindergarten boy 'Really? How do you know?' the teacher asked. 'You know - Our Father, who does art in Heaven... '
(You will only get this joke if you know The Lord's Prayer)

6. A minister waited in line to have his car filled with gas just before a long holiday weekend. The attendant worked quickly, but there were many cars ahead of him. Finally, the attendant motioned him toward a vacant pump. 'Reverend,' said the young man, 'I'm so sorry about the delay. It seems as if everyone waits until the last minute to get ready for a long trip.' The minister chuckled, 'I know what you mean. It's the same in my business.'

7. People want the front of the bus, the back of the church, and the center of attention.

8. A father was approached by his small son who told him proudly, 'I know what the Bible means!' His father smiled and replied, 'What do you mean, you 'know' what the Bible means?'
The son replied, 'I do know!'
'Okay,' said his father. 'What does the Bible mean?' 'That's easy, Daddy.' the young boy replied excitedly,
'It stands for 'Basic Information Before Leaving Earth.''
(Heard this many times before)

9. Sunday after church, a Mom asked her very young daughter what the lesson was about. The daughter answered, 'Don't be scared, you'll get your quilt. 'Needless to say, the Mom was perplexed. Later in the day, the pastor stopped by for tea and the Mom asked him what that morning's Sunday school lesson was about. He said 'Be not afraid, thy comforter is coming.'

If you know me really well, you should know that I'm not the type of person who is willing to spend money on story books. Don't get me wrong, I do enjoy reading fairly, but not to the extent of paying for story books. Cos I don't see the point of keeping the book after I've finished reading it. I'd rather have some kind souls lend me their story books for a short period then return it to the owner. :)

Few months back, a kind soul lent me two story books by Anchee Min. This person was raving about how entertaining the book is and influenced me to give it a read as well.

I got a hold of these two books at the same time. I wanted to read The Last Empress first because that was the said entertaining book but then my friend told me to start of with Empress Orchid as The Last Empress was sort of like the continuation to Empress Orchid. Reluctantly, I started reading page one of Empress Orchid and I found myself automatically hooked to it, flipping pages to pages without a break.

Empress Orchid is one heck of an entertaining book. It tells us the story about a poor village girl who had no choice but to enter the palace in the hopes of becoming the next top model concubine. Every intricate detail is oozed in this book bringing the book into life before you even realise it! Well, for me at least. :)

Unfortunately, The Last Empress was a let down for me. It gets too dry most of the time so I wouldn't recommend this book. Maybe it was my problem, I don't know. Maybe I just didn't have the mood to read it but I still finished the book.

I'm currently reading this quite obsolete book titled Tuesdays With Morrie. I've been hearing so much about it, yet I never really took the time to read it until now. Yeah okay, I know I am slow! The cover of the book looks so boring, which is probably why I kept putting this book on hold until now. However, I have to admit that it's a very entertaining book. I guess this is what the saying of 'do not judge a book by its cover' literally means. Hehe!

It's based on a true life story and it is so heartwarming! Basically, it's about how an ex-college professor, Morrie, is going to die from an incurable illness yet he learns and teaches how to make the most out of it before his death. Towards the last days of his life, he met up with his student whom he taught 20 years ago and had a special bond with to teach him about life's greatest lesson. The meeting between the both of them would be every Tuesday hence the title of this book.

I haven't finished reading it yet because I'm taking my own sweet time to read it.
So is there any kind soul out there who would wanna lend me any book which you think is worth reading? :)

Wrong, yet right.

Found this on the Internet and thought of sharing with you guys to see what you think.

Fact: Time per week spent on watching TV: 35 hours 21 minutes. Time per week that parents spend on meaningful conversations with their kids: 38 minutes.

I read that sentence and couldn't help to agree. Is it the child who is not making the effort to speak to the parents or the other way round?

I am just so disappointed about what happened today. Very, very disappointed.

We know very well that favouritism has been going on around here since forever. But this time, it is too much to handle. You were practising it in front of my eyes. Worse still, you KNEW it was wrong and yet stood up for 'it'. How much do you think that hurt me?

Don't ask.

Longing for an island holiday :(
