He was to have given a talk on yachting and sailing, so the Parson offered to give a talk instead on Sex and Religion. This was handled with great delicacy and tact, and was a tremendous success.

She writes to her Grand-daughter as follows == Dear Grand-daughter, The other day I went into our local Christian book store and saw a ”Honk if you love Jesus’” bumper sticker. So, on an impulse, I bought it and stuck  it on my bumper.  Oh Boy!!,  what an uplifting Christian experience followed. I was stopped at a red light at a busy intersection and was just lost in thought about the Lord and how good He is, and I didn’t notice that the light had changed to green. It is a good thing that the man behind me also loved Jesus, because if he hadn’t honked, I’d never have noticed the changed light. He also put his head out of his window and shouted  “’For the love of God, woman!!”   What an exuberant cheerleader he would have made for Jesus! Just then everyone else started honking, so I leaned out my window and started waving and smiling at all those Jesus loving people. I even honked my horn a few times to share in their love! I saw one guy waving in a funny way with only his middle finger stuck up in the air so I asked my young teenage Grandson in the back seat what that meant. He said it was a Hawaiian good luck sign. Well, I have never met anyone from Hawaii  but I leaned out the window and gave him the good luck sign right back. A couple of the people were so caught up in the joy of the moment that they got out of their cars and started walking towards me. I bet they wanted to pray or ask what Church I attended, but this was when I suddenly noticed that the light had changed to green. So, smiling, I waved at all my brothers and sisters in the Lord, and drove on through the intersection. However, I noticed that I was the only car that got through before the light changed again back to red again and I felt kind of sad that I had to leave all those lovely people behind, so I slowed the car down, leaned out the window and gave them all two Hawaiian good luck signs one last time as I drove away.  Praise the Lord for such wonderful folks!! Will write again soon, Love Grandma. 41:  Postal Clerk to a lady posting the family Bible to her son: “ Is there  anything breakable in this parcel Madam?” Lady posting parcel: “ Only the Ten Commandments” 42:  When getting up in the morning, say: “Good Morning Lord”, , , ,  rather than: “Good Lord it’s Morning” !!! 43:  Minister in his sermon: “I have both good news and bad news.

The message read as follows , , , ,                                                                                                                                          To: My Loving Wife                                  Subject: I've arrived                              Date: June 3, 2005                                                                                     I know you're surprised to hear from me so soon, but they but they have computers here now. and you are allowed to send e-mails to your loved ones.     I've just arrived and  have been checked in. I am glad to see that everything has been prepared for your arrival tomorrow. Looking forward to seeing you then.                                                  Hope your journey will be as uneventful as mine was.                                                       Love  Tom.    P.S.. It is damn hot down here!!                                                                       53:  Little Johnnie: “Daddy, ”What is that polished Wooden Plaque with Gold Lettering on the wall as you enter the Church?” Daddy: “It is a Memorial to all those Brave Souls who died in ‘The Service’ during the last War” Little Johnnie: “Was that at the 8-0- Clock or the 10- 0- Clock Service?” 54: A verse missing from Genesis Chapter 2 between V17 and  18 runs as follows:-  “ And behold, it came to pass that as God gazed upon Man whom  He had just created, He said “OOOPS!!!

The Parishioner looked up at the Vicar as he stood on the slippery icy pavement and said “So I see”. 57:  FINALLY, ON  A  MORE SERIOUS NOTE WITH WHICH TO END:   “O think not, bold man, because your punishment is delayed, that the arm of God is weakened, neither flatter yourself with hopes that He winks at your doings. The high, the low, the rich, the poor, the wise and the ignorant, when the soul has shaken off the cumbrous shackles of this mortal life, shall quickly receive from the Great Law of God, a just and everlasting compensation, according to their works. Then shall the  wicked learn and make compensation in course of time; but the heart of the righteous shall rejoice in His rewards”  (From “Unto Thee I Grant” by the good religious Egyptian King Amenhotep IV, , , , ,  Also Known  As: “Akhnaton”, Died 1336 B.C.). cccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccc
