Lately I have been stuck in a rut. Nothing bad is going on, but nothing exciting is going on as well. I'm tired of winter weather and feeling couped up. I'm tired of mundane. I'm tired of seeing saddness in the world. I just feel tired!
Today I felt myself really sinking so I decided to google some jokes to lighten my mood. This actually helped a lot, so I thought that I would share a joke with all of you, just in case you are suffering from the winter blues like I am.
Acting Up In Church
One Sunday in a Midwest City, a young child was "acting up" during the morning service. The parents did their best to maintain some sense of order in the pew but were losing the battle.
Finally, the father picked the little fellow up and walked sternly up the aisle on his way out.
Just before reaching the safety of the foyer, the little one called loudly to the congregation, "Pray for me! Pray for me!"
This joke cracked me up! I don't know if it is so funny to me because it hits real close to home with a couple of our boys, or if it's just a really funny joke? Those of you who go to church with us can probably picture Joel doing the football hold on Jacob or Caleb while leaving the santuary quite a few times! It wasn't very funny then, but looking back on it now, it's pretty funny! So just like that time of our life has passed, (Since Jacob and Caleb sit at least fairly well in church now and Nolan and Gavin have always behaved themselves.) I'm quite confident that this season and time of feeling confined and restless will pass as well!
Well, I'm off to read more jokes and maybe to pray that Spring makes it's way to Michigan faster than it usually does! Have a great day wherever you are! :)
