THE FUNNIES 14.0 – Friday, July 24, 2020.

While hurt people revel in hurting people I believe in healing people and keeping them well. And what brings healing like laughter? Enjoy!

In the famed words of Charles Dickens’ Ebenezer Scrooge, It is a fair, even-handed, noble adjustment of things, that while there is infection in disease and sorrow, there is nothing in the world so irresistibly contagious as laughter and good humor.”

I hope to spread some here in a new installment (est. 4.16.20) of things that crack me up called, THE FUNNIES. Here is a spoonful of sugar for whatever ails you. And MANY THANKS to everyone who reads and responds. XOXO

Last Friday was perhaps too deep for some, so I’m back this FriYaY with foolish fodder, some not quite my taste but always with you, the reader, in mind.

On Being Female

“For I had observed that men did not usually do things unless they liked doing them.”

Barbara Pym in her book, Excellent Women. (Which I am not endorsing just because I use the quote.)

Funny quote. I think we women may be on the precipice of making ourselves miserable, though, trying to compete with men, while more and more men are opting to stay at home with the kids and playing video games all day. What’s up with that? So to the women who want to do what the fellas do and feel they have something to prove: More power to you. But ladies, we only have one life to live. Let’s find what makes us truly happy and let’s do that instead. What do you think?

Cheap man or good steward?


Everything has changed because of COVID-19 and birthdays are no exception. Here are some creative ways people are celebrating. Use at your own discretion.

Did this birthday boy take out a hairdryer to blow out the candles? And where did he get all those computers? Why didn’t he just use Zoom?

What joy overwhelms everyone who keeps the ways of God, those who seek Him as their heart’s passion!

Psalm 119:2 TPT
