Just Snippets

Q. How many Presbyterians does it take to change
a lightbulb?

A. None. If God wanted it changed, He'd do it

Q. Why do cows wear bells?

A. Because their horns don't work.

On the way home from The Big City this afternoon
Hattie wanted to play a game in the car. We are all
about games in the car. Usually she makes them up.
Lately she's been throwing out statements and they
have to be continued in alphabetical order. For
example-I went to the grocery store and I bought
an apricot. I went to the grocery store and I bought
a banana...etc.

This time she said, "God is almighty," and we continued
from there. Of course, we always let the person that
gets "x" use a word that starts with either "x" or "ex".
After that she started a second round with, "God created
animals." What fun!

After we finished that Kent wanted to start with creation
and tell the Bible story in order. Each person took a
turn and then quit whenever they felt like it and the next
person continued until they got to a good starting point.
It was interesting to see how much Hattie knew and where
the holes were in the midst of that knowledge. She didn't
know about Enoch, for instance.

How I love getting home to my own little nest and unpacking
the bags and laying my head on my own flat pillow for the
night! It is amazing to think of the comfort and nestling
we will do when we finally reach our real home and begin our
eternal work.

What a great "game" to pass the time, & to praise God with!
I love that idea!

Good fun! I love playing those games in the car. I've seen a much longer version of the opening joke... covers just about every denomination. :~)

BTW, very clever of you all to tell the Bible story in segments. I think I'll try that to ferret out the gaps in our family's knowledge (and mine!)

We play games all the time when we travel. Going to Nanny and Deda's house is a long trip and it helps pass the time.

After a long trip, I love being able to curl up in my own bed. How great it will be to be able to go to our real home when we've been on earth for so many years!
