Very interesting Oesy! So very nice getting to enjoy your posts more these days, if only I had more time online lately.

Holy mackerel! I was just going over the thread and spotted your Spanky and Our Gang photo! Great minds! I post them right after you and only now just found out.

It took me a while to post the picture once I found it, so we might have come up with the idea at the same time.

Before posting the photo I read up a bit on them. First surprise was how many different casts there were and that it went as far back as the 1920s. Maybe it was reading that Petey was a pitbull that did it.

Did you read the bios of the Little Rascals? Sadly, many of them died young.

Of course not, but it came out like that, didn't it? Now, occasionally I laugh at myself when I do something stupid. (yes I do sometimes). To tell you the truth, you give me many laughs...and Oesy is very funny and several others. I get some emails sometimes that truly make me sit here and laugh out loud.

You should really try to laugh at every mote of an opportunity. Life is extremely easy to take seriously, especially when nothing’s happened to you.

Then something serious happens and sometime later you realize it has deepened your life. We all know how that feels.

Now get inside a giant paint shaker with a load of rocks. Take a ride in that and later on you’ll crawl out and give the grim reaper the finger. Then you’ll tell jokes and laugh at lots of things.

It was a pretty good day. I made “Turtle Temptations” for dessert, as a friend came for lunch. We had a nice visit - it’s always nice to see old friends.

Leftover chicken pot pie for dinner with a huge salad and Marie Callendar type cornbread.

It is hard to believe that I had the windows open all day, with the fans running - toward the end of November. Hope it’s not the still before the storm! (Just heard it is snowing in TN!) LOL!

Enjoy your quiet time, Amy, and have a peaceful sleep tonight.

Freep mail me to be on or off the Daily Bread ping list

November 21, 2008
Off Track
Why have you despised the commandment of the Lord, to do evil in His sight? —2 Samuel 12:9

When I sat in my car at the start of the automatic car wash, I didn’t know that my left front tire was not properly lined up with the track. The car wash started but my car wasn’t moving, so I accelerated. That caused my tire to jump the track.

Now I was stuck—I couldn’t move forward or backward. The car wash continued through its cycle without my car. Meanwhile, cars began lining up and waiting for me. I was glad when two workers at the station helped me get my car back on the track.

Sometimes in our Christian lives we get off track too. King David did in a big way. He committed adultery with Bathsheba and later ordered that her husband be put “in the forefront of the hottest battle” and left there to be killed (2 Sam. 11:3-4,15-17). David’s actions were way out of line with how God wanted him to behave as His chosen king.

David needed help to get back on track. The Bible says that “the Lord sent Nathan to David” (12:1). He confronted him about stealing another man’s wife, and David wisely repented (v.13). Nathan took a risk to help David get right with God, even though his sin still had dire consequences.

Does someone you know need your help to get back on track?

Fellowship with other Christians
Strengthens us when we are weak,
Reprimands when we are sinning,
Helps us when God’s will we seek. —Sper

True love dares to confront.


Bible in One Year: Daniel 10–12; Proverbs 19:1-15
