Jesus Loves Me This I Know

Jesus Loves Me This I Know

on February 7, 2016, 6:29 AM / in Bedtime Stories

Right before the jetway door closed, I scrambled aboard the plane going from LA to Chicago, lugging my laptop and overstuffed briefcase. It was the first leg of an important business trip a few weeks before Christmas, and I was running late. I had a ton of work to catch up on. Half wishing, half praying I muttered, “Please God, […]

NEW YORK [could this also be Jackson?] DRIVING RULES

on February 6, 2016, 6:37 AM / in Bedtime Stories

Turn signals will give away your next move. A real Long Island driver never uses them. Use of them in Massapequa may be illegal. Under no circumstances should you leave a safe distance between you and the car in front of you, or the space will be filled in by somebody else putting you in an even more dangerous situation. […]

Thanks to Jackie, we are now smiling. As you know, my dear people, the last year for me has been an annus horribilus. The Royal House of Clinton has been tormented by questions about our handling of finances and subjected to tiresome questions about the tragic events in Benghazi – in the furthest regions of our empire. And, sadly, also […]

The Penny

You always hear the usual stories of pennies on the sidewalk being good luck, gifts from angels, etc. This is the first time I’ve ever heard this twist on the story. Gives you something to think about. Several years ago, a friend of mine and her husband were invited to spend the weekend at the husband’s employer’s home. My friend, […]

Neil Snyder, owner of the NFL Redskins, has announced that the team is dropping “Washington ” from the team name, and it will henceforth be simply known as “The Redskins . ” It was reported that he finds the word ‘Washington’ imparts a negative image of poor leadership, mismanagement, corruption, cheating, lying, and graft, and is not a fitting role-model […]

Thanks to Joe J. for this historical remembrance:   Morning all, I hope I am not intruding on your day too much, but I get on my stump once in awhile and I often wonder how our forefathers would react if they could see our plight today in regards to who is controlling this country. I am in the opinion that […]

Forever Young

Forever Young

on January 9, 2016, 6:14 AM / in Bedtime Stories

Someone asked us how you could be so youthful at our age. This is what we tell them! Youth is not a time of life – it is a state of mind, it is a temper of the will, a quality of the imagination, a vigor of the emotions, a predominance of courage over timidity, of the appetite for adventure […]

[Submitted by Jamie Gatlin & Stephanie Vandiver] This is a wonderful incident observed by a young man who works for CenturyTel in Monroe, Louisiana, while shopping at Walmart one day. She must have been six years old, this beautiful, brown haired, freckle faced image of innocence. Her Mom looked like someone from the Waltons or a moment captured by Norman […]

WOW!!!! As I began to read this I thought I wrote it –   (big grin) ….   Being part Polish I only survive thru HUMOR – it has been my lifesaver all my life.  Sarcasm,  puns, odd use of words or the spelling of them  – that has been  my family history.

The Three Trees

The Three Trees

on December 28, 2015, 5:57 AM / in Bedtime Stories

Once there were three trees on a hill in the woods. They were discussing their hopes and dreams when the first tree said, “Someday I hope to be a treasure chest. I could be filled with gold, silver and precious gems. I could be decorated with intricate carving and everyone would see the beauty.” Then the second tree said, “Someday […]

Saved by Christmas

on December 25, 2015, 5:30 AM / in Bedtime Stories

World War II has ended and somewhere in central Europe, a solitary figure, his clothes in tatters, carefully walks around the piles of rubble and broken glass on the streets of a once-bustling city now lying in ruins.  The few still-upright walls, their windows and doors blown out, appear as skeletons framed against the blue sky.  No one knows this […]

A Visit from St. Nicholas

By Clement Clarke Moore 1779–1863 ‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse; The stockings were hung by the chimney with care, In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there; The children were nestled all snug in their beds; While visions of sugar-plums danced in their heads; And […]
