SHERI's SUTHERN LIVIN'

Here in South Florida, Spring belongs to the gators.  They are seriously looking for a girlfriend or boyfriend and in so doing, they do stupid things.   Like one day at the gas station, a big ole gator walked past the people putting gas in their car.  How fast do you think it takes for someone to call the Wildlife Management people when that happens?  Living here, I've learned about the Gators and their habits.  Did you know they can climb a chained link fence?    Oh yeah.   Bet you never thought of one coming into your doggy door and be waiting for you when you got home.  When it gets down to it, my opinion is they were here first.

JOKES AND CARTOONS
Give me a sense of humor, Lord,
Give me the grace to see a joke,
To get some humor out of life,
And to pass it on to other folks.
  



Kids In Church
The preacher was wired for sound with a lapel mike,
and as he preached, he moved briskly about the
platform, jerking the mike cord as he went. Then he
moved to one side, getting wound up in the cord and
nearly tripping before jerking it again. After
several circles and jerks, a little girl in the third
pew leaned toward her mother and whispered, "If he
gets loose, will he hurt us?"





A Sunday school teacher asked her little children, as
they were on the way to church service, "And why is it
necessary to be quiet in church?" One bright little
girl replied, "Because people are sleeping."




And one particular four-year old prayed,
 "And forgive us our trash baskets as we
forgive those who put trash in our baskets."




A ten-year old, under the tutelage of her grandmother,
was becoming quite knowledgeable about the Bible.
Then, one day, she floored her grandmother by asking,
"Which Virgin was the mother of Jesus? The Virgin Mary
or the King James Virgin?"

All this time, I thought this was Billy Graham's prayer.  It isn't.
Billy Graham's Prayer for Our Nation
http://www.snopes.com/politics/soapbox/prayernation.asp

'Heavenly Father, we come before you today to ask your Forgiveness and to seek your direction and guidance. We know Your Word Says, 'Woe to those who call evil good,' but that is exactly what we have Done. We have lost our spiritual equilibrium and reversed our values. We Have exploited the poor and called it the lottery. We have rewarded Laziness and called it welfare. We have killed our unborn and called it Choice. We have shot abortionists and called it justifiable... We have Neglected to discipline our children and called it building self esteem. We Have abused power and called it politics. We have coveted our neighbor's Possessions and called it ambition. We have polluted the air with profanity And pornography and called it freedom of expression. We have ridiculed the Time-honored values of our forefathers and called it enlightenment. Search Us, Oh God, and know our hearts today; cleanse us from sin and Set us free.
In Jesus name, amen!' With the Lord's help, may this prayer sweep over our nation and Wholeheartedly become our desire so that we once again can be called 'One Nation under God!'
