Learning etiquette, humor — celebrating 93

in
Irby, Marna.jpg

I just read a quotation from Abraham Lincoln that I never remember seeing before, but found it well worth repeating: Now I can’t remember it. Happens to old folks like me, but that’s all right, I’ll think of it when I wake up at two in the morning. It’s all relative, folks.
Have to share this joke sent to me by Nita Nell (Huey) Watson, who lives in San Marcos, Texas, but grew up in Ruston. It’s a Baptist joke, but all of you may laugh:

Sharing together out of love

Brewton, Cathy 12-13.jpg

I have been thinking about the ways in which we share as members of this planet and the ways we are called to share as children of God.
Most of us are taught to share as small children. It seems that our first inclination when told to share our toys from the time we are about 2 years old is to say, “No!” or “Mine!”
In fact, I have rarely seen a 2-year old eagerly share his or her toys without some prompting from the parents, grandparents or caregivers — especially if it is a special toy, stuffed animal or doll.
