Time for a commercial
Saying for the day: We interrupt this blog for this important message.
Its time for that point where people go and get a beer. I suppose in the blog world its where one pops on to the next blog and hopefully comes back tomorrow.
But my sponsor expects me to speak a word on His behalf.
I have such a joy in Jesus that I have to share it with you.
Please don’t throw anything at me.
I don’t want you to think I’m so arrogant that I believe my religion is better than yours. In point of fact yours is probably better than mine. I’m a Lutheran and this is a strange time to be Lutheran. The church has no idea of what it is in this century . It has all kinds of forces threatening to pull it apart. So I am not trying to get you to be Lutheran.
No I just want to tell you that from the time I ran into the man Jesus who is also God I have had a joy that has lasted no matter what life threw at me. That much God expects me to do.
God does not require that I twist your arm. God does not require that I make you into my kind of Christian.
God just requires I share the joy. I just have to tell you that Jesus brings me joy. I can not imagine walking without him.
You are free to shake your head and say “The poor old man is befuddled”. I may be. But I have a real joy in my befuddlement.
If you have your own joy I rejoice with you. If you have found God by some other name I rejoice with you. If you have decided there is no God I will still like you.
I am not required to judge you. In fact He who directs my life forbids me to do that.
So let me again say that Jesus gives me joy. I want you to have that same joy.
This is the end of my commercial.
I return you to the blog.
7700 spins without a win. Well Old Hapless watched a lady pass up $130,000 because of greed. But she checked it in in time to take home over $20,000 so she wasn't a total loser. The program of course was "Deal or no Deal" home of greed and more greed. Old Hapless is sure that if he went on the program he would end up with $.01 .His final choice would be between $750,000 and $.01 with an offer of $300,000 on the table. His case would have the $.01.
Well Uncle Wiggly lovers if "Deal or no Deal" doesn't call and invite Hapless to be on the show causing him to have a complete and total nervous breakdown. We will be back tomorrow with "As the World Spins"
My daughter who has been complaining about getting no comments had her comment modification on and didn't know it.( She is new to blogging). Once she discovered what was wrong she also discovered she had lots of comments she had never seen. Today is Betty's birthday and the daughter sent a beautiful bouquet of flowers. I did a lot more walking with the walker. If I keep making progress I might even be able to get out of the fortress.(But do I want to?)Started work on the April web pages for United. Talked to my Sister and my son Peter who called to wish Betty a happy birthday. Well I need a breathing treaTMENT.
