Hello My Friends ~~ Well I am about to type out my post, but
where we go from there is anybody ’s guess. Blogger is being
most unkind, as I cannot open anything at present, including
my own blog, and most of yours. If I did get them open earlier
I could not open comments. So I will say Thank you to those
who left comments here for today as they are very much
appreciated. Now to find something nice to post….
<><><> The Average Man’s Prayer. <><><>
Lord, I speak not in scholarly language,
But somehow, I know You wont care;
For mine is a humble petition…
Mine is the average man’s prayer.
My thoughts are, of course, not brilliant,
My wishes, You know them quite well.
There are many of me and my fellows,
So many, it’s needless to tell.
You know that I am one of those pluggers,
I go out each day and I fight;
And sometimes I’m beaten, discouraged,
And I’m very weary at night.
I bark at my wife, who is patient,
I bully my children, who cry.
I know I could be better natured,
But often, I don’t even try.
But You know how rough things are running,
How business is all in a hole,
A man’s got to sweat for his living
And struggle with body and soul.
Lord, help me face life with courage,
And bless everything that I do.
I’m dumb when it comes to this praying,
But I trust and rely on You.
Watch over the days of my dear ones---
They’re all that I have to share…….
And I wish I could make this more lofty,
But it’s only the average man’s prayer.

Mick was in court charged with double murder.
“You are charged with beating your wife to death with a
spanner,” the judge said.
A voice from the back of the court yelled, “You mongrel.”
The judge continued, “You are also charged with beating her
lover to death with a spanner.”
Again the voice at the back of the court yelled,”You mongrel.”
The judge stopped, looked at the man at the back and said,
“Paddy, I can understand your anger and frustration, but I will
not have any more of these outbursts or I will charge you with
contempt. Now, what is your problem?”
Paddy stood up, fuming: “For 15 years I lived next door to that
mongrel, and every time I asked to borrow a spanner, he said
he didn’t have one.”
Two turtles go camping and pack a portable cooler with sandwiches
and beer. After three days of walking, they arrive at a great spot,
but realise they ’ve forgotten the bottle opener
The first turtle turns to the second and says, “You’ve gotta go
back and get the opener or else we have no beer.”
“No way,” says the second. “By the time I get back, you will have
eaten all the food.”
“I promise I won’t,” says the turtle. “Just hurry!”
Nine full days pass and there’s still no sign of the second turtle
Exasperated and starving, the first turtle digs into the sandwiches.
Suddenly, the second turtle pops out from behind a rock and yells:
“I knew it. I’m not bloody well going now!!”
Last time I saw that joke they weren’t turtles as I remember.
And from my calender ------
Just in time, sweltering summer gives way to brisk autumn.
Each of life’s seasons can bring welcome change.
Happines – consists in giving and in serving others.
Happiness may be a warm puppy, but joy is having a good friend
to share your life with.
A rich person has many treasures, a wise person treasures
The opportunity to experience joy is always only a smile away.
<><><> That’s it, now if blogger is co-operative ---
Take care my friends till we meet again, Merle. <><><>
