More Humor and Prayers for America

I do not want to come off as disrespectful. It is hard to go anywhere or do anything without political commentary. Before I share my own thoughts this was something I heard today. A friend I have known for quite some time through blogging has a Face Book page. I don't make a habit of trolling the hateful comments, the unintelligent ones ,  etc. , I try to pass over them. But so many people are sharing that if you don't like who I voted for, etc. than I will delete you! While my friend shared a lovely post stating no matter what your politics are she will still like you. That is about the best comment anyone made at social media in the past year! But someone trying to engage her in a heated political debate said, please don't let Trump win, Hilary will save Standing Rock. Hello person,   a Democratic president has been
sitting in the white house for 8 years. Tell me, please, what has he done for Standing Rock that Hilary will continue? I am just very curious.
I should be preparing for my Premier designs Jewelry show on Thursday but I wanted to blog a bit and shared some photos and Scripture at social media. I thought I might as well share more humor here.
I have always been a fan of Family Circus. This one cracked me up. A prince size mattress fit for a prince! Hee Hee! We recently purchased a new mattress. Our old was was barely two years old but the long term warranty was not doing us any good. So we tossed it, because it had a crater size dip in it and the  Mattress Co. wasn't holding their end of the warranty. They wanted photos,  and we would need to strip the bed, remove the box springs so they could see the support under that! Basically they wanted us to believe that this is what happens to a memory foam mattress. We were not given all the details of that mattress when we bought it. We figured the sale guy was getting ready to book when he added a free fifteen year warranty on it. Oh well, at least we can sleep well now with the new mattress and the American Furniture Warehouse salesman explained every detail beautifully. I guess that is why Mr. Jake Jabs is such a success. We have never purchased anything from him that we did not love.
These movies, the  ones that always have the victim talking to the killer as if they are going to have tea together! They make me laugh out loud! Why do they always go into the dark, dreary cellar alone too? They also walk into the dark house that has the front door ajar!
This is just the absolute truth!
This was just filled with humor and no offense to anyone who has had to deal with divorce.
This poor baby looks stressed out!
Laughing all the way! I have often felt that Stella, Jeremy's rescue dog was in the Canine Protection Program. She lived with us for 8 years and would never look into the camera when we were taken photos. She is 9 now and getting a little better.

HaHaHa! Whenever I go to the zoo and look over at the camels I think of this silliness.
The comedian Dane Cook did a routine about atheists and trees. Although his language is a bit too colorful, his story was so true.
This is just cute! I love this baby's face. When our oldest son Jeremy was in preschool, he once told a teacher that only bats slept in the daylight hours and it was not normal for people to sleep when the sun was shining.
A beautiful thought from Corrie ten Boom. What a remarkable woman she was. A true heart for God.

Philippians 3:20-21  

But our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transform our lowly body to be like his glorious body, by the power that enables him even to subject all things to himself.

I was watching the movie Risen with my hubby while the rest of the country was watching the election results. I trust God, I never trust politics. I took this photo on the way home tonight. The hubby was driving so I was able to capture this shot.

Galatians 1:10  

For am I now seeking the approval of man, or of God? Or am I trying to please man? If I were still trying to please man, I would not be a servant of Christ.  

Goodnight all, thank you for visiting.

Hi Anne, thank you so much for the Scriptures and images, a much needed post today. Here in Canada we are shocked and most of us were rooting for Hillary. One of the main concerns for us Canadians is how Donald Trump's presidency will affect our economy. Thankfully God is in control. Love and hugs to you.

We have been so divided as a country. I hope we can come together now and all work for the good of every citizen. That has not been the case for a very long time.

I love all the funnies as always. Your tastes and mine are very similar.

Have a blessed day my friend. Big hug. ☺

All of these are so great, Anne ... but I especially love the 'killer in the kitchen' one. I hope you don't mind if I copy it and post on my FB page? God knows, I've been far too serious lately.

You're the second person TODAY who's spoken lovingly about American Family Warehouse! Sure and we've one nearby, but I've never been there. We need new stuff, but we don't NEED-need anything desperately just now.

So much for me to catch up with here. I love the poster about the scary movies. How true it is!! Well, the election is over and now it's time for everyone to pull together and help get our great country back on its feet. I hope you have a great day, hugs, Edna B.
