A Heartfelt Thank You

March 11, 2015 my first blog post, “Welcome to the Writer’s Treasure Chest” was published. This was exactly 9 months ago. Since then this blog has made far better progress than I ever had dared to hope.

Even though I was a little scared to own my own blog and keep readers entertained, you all made it enjoyable for me!

This blog has made significant progress. In the meantime I could celebrate by far over 200 followers, 1,000 likes, over 8,000 views, 2 blog awards and December 9, 2015 I got this:

Church Bulletin Bloopers

Thank God for church ladies with typewriters. These sentences actually appeared in church bulletins or were announced in church services:

Rolling on the floor laughing

1. Bertha Belch, a missionary from Africa, will be speaking tonight at Calvary Methodist. Come hear Bertha Belch all the way from Africa.

2. Announcement in a church bulletin for a national PRAYER & FASTING Conference: “The cost for attending the Fasting & Prayer Conference includes meals.

3. The sermon this morning: “Jesus Walks on the Water.”
The sermon tonight: “Searching for Jesus.”

4. Our youth basketball team is back in action Wednesday at 8 PM in the recreation hall – Come out and watch us kill Christ the King.

A lot of “stuff” has been going on in my life lately. Hard stuff. Heavy stuff. The kind of stuff that just makes me want to write massacre scenes….except I am so brain dead I had to google how to spell “massacre.”

Masicker? Missucker?

WHAT AM I DOING???? *breaks down sobbing*

I am supposed to be an adult an expert okay, maybe functionally literate. Fine, I give up! I have nothing left to saaaaayyyyyy. I am all out of woooords *builds pillow fort*.

I figured it’s time for a bit of levity. Heck, I need a good laugh. How about you guys?

How to make meetings fun

You feel the need to meet some others

relaxing, flirting, leaning back.

Feel connected to sisters and brothers

drink some coffee, have a snack.

*

It’s raining out, you’re feeling blue

instead you want to be adored.

That’s why you sit a meeting through

to fight a long day being bored.

 *

When it slows bring up advice

make sure it doesn’t match at all

while your boss explains it in disguise

get up, walk out and take a call.

Think how it were out in the sun

misunderstand what’s said and smile

only this way you are having fun

enjoy these days once in a while!
