Walking to School

Art Prints

Timmy was a little five year old boy that his Mom loved very much and,
being a worrier, she was concerned about him walking to school when he
started Kindergarten. She walked him to school the couple of days but
when he came home one day, he told his mother that he did not want
her walking him to school everyday. He wanted to be like the “big boys.”

He protested loudly,so she had an idea of how to handle it.

She asked a neighbor, Mrs. Goodnest, if she would surreptitiously follow
her son to school, at a distance behind him that he would not likely
notice, but close enough to keep a watch on him. Mrs. Goodnest said
that since she was up early with her toddler anyway, it would be a good
way for them to get some exercise as well so she agreed.

The next school day, Mrs. Goodnest and her little girl, Marcy, set out
following behind Timmy as he walked to school with another neighbor
boy he knew. She did this for the whole week.

As the boys walked and chatted, kicking stones and twigs, the little
friend of Timmy noticed that this same lady was following them as
she seemed to do every day all week. Finally, he said to Timmy,
“Have you noticed that lady following us all week? Do you know her?”

Timmy nonchalantly replied, “Yea, I know who she is.”

The little friend said, “Well who is she?”

“That’s just Shirley Goodnest” Timmy said.

“Shirley Goodnest? Who is she and why is she following us?”

“Well,” Timmy explained, “every night my Mom makes me say the 23rd
Psalm with my prayers ‘cuz she worries about me so much. And in it,
the prayer psalm says, “Shirley Goodnest and Marcy shall follow me all
the days of my life,” so I guess I’ll just have to get used to it.”

church and state

There has been much debate over the years about what the founding fathers meant about the separation of church and state. In recent times there has been much disinformation about how they actually believed, especially George Washington. In this short Ebook the author tries to explain how they actually felt.

Painting the Church

Sell Art Online

There was a tradesman, a painter called Jock, who was very interested
in making a penny where he could, so he often would thin down paint
to make it go a wee bit further.

As it happened, he got away with this for some time, but eventually the
Baptist Church decided to do a big restoration job on the painting of
one of their biggest buildings. Jock put in a bid, and because his price
was so low, he got the job.

And so he set to erecting the trestles and setting up the planks, and
buying the paint and, yes, I am sorry to say, thinning it down with
turpentine.

Well, Jock was up on the scaffolding, painting away, the job nearly
completed when suddenly there was a horrendous clap of thunder,
and the sky opened, the rain poured down,washing the thinned paint
from all over the church and knocking Jock clear off the scaffold to
land on the lawn among the gravestones, surrounded by telltale puddles
of the thinned and useless paint.

Jock was no fool. He knew this was a judgment from the Almighty,
so he got on his knees and cried: “Oh, God! Forgive me! What should
I do?”

And from the thunder, a mighty voice spoke, “Repaint! Repaint!
and thin no more!”

The Preacher and the Golfer

Fred had tried to be particularly careful about his language as he played
golf with his preacher. But on the twelfth hole, when he twice failed to
hit out of a sand trap, he lost his resolve and let fly with a string of
expletives.

The preacher felt obliged to respond. “I have observed,” said he in a calm
voice, “that the best golfers do not use foul language.”

“I guess not, said Fred, “what the hell do they have to cuss about?”

The New Organist

The minister was preoccupied with thoughts of how he was going to,
after the worship service, ask the congregation to come up with more
money than they were expecting for repairs to the church building.
Therefore, he was annoyed to find that the regular organist was sick
and a substitute had been brought in at the last minute.

The substitute wanted to know what to play. “Here’s a copy of the
service,” he said impatiently. “But you’ll have to think of something to
play after I make the announcement about the finances.”

At the end of the service, the minister paused and said, “Brothers and
Sisters, we are in great difficulty; the roof repairs cost twice as much
as we expected, and we need $4,000 more. Any of you who can pledge
$100 or more, please stand up.” At that moment, the substitute organist
played “The Star-Spangled Banner.” And that is how the substitute
became the regular organist!
