Fun Friday with a lot of help from my friends....

I hope you have fun here - and have a great weekend.

I'll see you on Monday! 

                                     Thank you Carmen! This was my grandson's English Teacher this year.


Thanks Bev This and That

This is bad again, but look at this poor dog . . .

                                                               Thank you Monica

                                                    Thank you -  Happier than a pig in mud.


Quick read, ones that will make you smile, and others to ponder.

Don't let your worries get the best of you;  Remember, Moses started out as a basket case.

Many folks want to serve God, But only as advisers.

It is easier to preach ten sermons Than it is to live one.

The good Lord didn't create anything without a purpose, But mosquitoes come close.

When you get to your wit's end, You'll find God lives there.

People are funny; they want the front of the bus,
Middle of the road,
And back of the church.


Opportunity may knock once, But temptation bangs on the front door forever.

Quit griping about your church; If it was perfect, you couldn't belong.

If a church wants a better preacher, It only needs to pray for the one it has.

We're called to be witnesses, not lawyers or judges.

God Himself doesn't propose to judge a man until he is dead. So why should you?

Some minds are like concrete Thoroughly mixed up and permanently set.

Peace starts with a smile.

I don't know why some people change churches; What difference does it make which one you stay home from?

Be ye fishers of men. You catch 'em - He'll clean 'em.

Coincidence is when God chooses to remain anonymous.

Don't put a question mark where God put a period.

Don't wait for 6 strong men to take you to church.

Forbidden fruits create many jams.

God doesn't call the qualified, He qualifies the called.

God grades on the cross, not the curve.

God loves everyone, But probably prefers 'fruits of the spirit' over 'religious nuts!'

God promises a safe landing, not a calm passage.

He who angers you, controls you!

If God is your Co-pilot, swap seats!

Prayer: Don't give God instructions, just report for duty!

The task ahead of us is never as great as the Power behind us.

The Will of God never takes you to where the Grace of God will not protect you.

We don't change the message, The message changes us.

You can tell how big a person is By what it takes to discourage him/her.

1 cross + 3 nails = 4 given.

THANK YOU BETTY at DayDreamWorld


                                                               Thank you - Kelly

Nice fun post. Have a great holiday weekend, Sandi.

Bev said...

Thanks for the laughs!

Cheri said...

Sandie these were all so good today. I love the first baby boy and first baby girl dancing, they are so cute. I wish they had an app for that and we could see ourselves dancing like that as babies...I would laugh so hard. Have a great weekend.

thisisme said...

Hi Sandie. Oh, this was a brilliant post. So much for us to smile at there. I've just put the Evian baby advert on facebook. So funny! I love, love your new header by the way. So Summery. Thanks for ending the week on such a good note! Have a lovely weekend.

mail4rosey said...

You always find the best jokes! And complete sentences? Nuh uh!! ;)

Hilary Melton-Butcher said...

Hi Sandie .. have a lovely weekend .. the Evian video is the best - especially at the end .. I can feel my head nodding off!! Very clever ..

Cheers Hilary

Debbie said...

OK, I burst out laughing at the very first one. I'm still chuckling right now about it. So true to life these days!

I haven't clicked the link yet. I need to go to the restroom first so I don't have as many of those tears running down my leg.

Just sayin'...

I love these, and I just flat out love Fun Friday at Sandie's place.

Susan said...

ha ha ha haha I liked the one of the husband thinking he was boss. Fun-nee

Have a great Friday, Sandie. Susan

Gloria Hood said...

Loved the one liners! Happy weekend!

jack69 said...

The babies are the funniest things, amazing what folks can do on computers.

I like the English teacher and punctuation marks.

And love the statement folks want to serve God as Advisers. LOL (HOW TRUE IS THAT!!!

Love from NC

barbara l. hale said...

That poor dog! lol. I love the cartoon with the winky face. So true!

TexWisGirl said...

laughed at the homework one, too.

Lady Jane said...

Sooooooooooooooo Funny!!!!

Terri said...

The babies in the window...too funny!

Cathy said...

These were all great today. Loved all the "faith quotes". The Evian babies are adorable!

Have a great weekend.

Sandee said...

That poor dog. Quite impressive though, if you get my drift.

I love, love, love the lift. Right on the money and I only need this time around.

Have a terrific day and weekend honey. Big hugs. :)

Tanna at The Brick Street Bungalow said...

LOL!! I'm chuckling over the preference of "fruits of the spirit" over "religious nuts".... among other things. ;) blessings ~ tanna

Debby@Just Breathe said...

Funny stuff today. So I guess we are now ancient....if we were to use the semicolon in a text the kids think we are winking at them....LOL! Have a wonderful weekend. Debby

Anonymous said...

I love your new header photos!
You always have the best posts,

Betsy Adams said...

Hi Sandie, It's all great today--but the baby commercial is truly awesome...

Hope you have a great weekend. Happy Memorial Day --and don't forget to thank God for our service men and women who do/did so much for us to keep us safe.


Betty (picture circa 1951) said...

What that little black kitten says is so true. I had to laugh. My cats knocked over the computer monitor. It still works, but constantly makes an annoying noise. Now I have a couple of books stacked in front of it. That way no cats can possible be hurt if they knock it over again. It will just tip so far. Sometimes the cats are worse than having little kids in the house.

Your grandson's English teacher would slaughter me alive. :)

Helen said...

lol, thanks for the laugh I needed that.

Susannah said...

Happy Friday, Miss chatty.....love all but the old ladies knowing who is Boss is really funny to me. Ha nd is doi ng really well. Easy peasy surgery.


Jemma said...

Boy girl, you hit the nail on the head with this Church business! Funny, because I have been thinking of going to a smaller Church!
Yes, once is enough-strange how when you are young you'd like to live many lives-now I feel like I can hardly finish this one!!
Happy Hugs!

My Journey With Candida said...

Hahahahaha Sandie, you are funny. Relax the weekend is here. That seems to be when I am the busiest.

Saimi said...

I was able to follow you by adding you URL to my blog so I guess we are up and running! Have a great week end!


Ms. A said...

If "peace starts with a smile" you always try to get me headed in the right direction. If only I could stay on course!

Parsley said...

I giggled so much!!!

Ginny said...

I love this list of things and am copying it! But the baby ad for Evian, BRILLIANT!!!! Those ads where babies talk like grown ups, I hate them, but this one is SO cool, and makes a good point. Even the little old lady's baby is dressed like a little old lady! Makes me want to go out and buy a case! I used to drink it many years ago, but not now it is very expensive. You have really kicked the weekend off RIGHT! What are you doing for the holiday weekend?

Retired English Teacher said...

Sadly, the joke about punctuation is true!

Happy Weekend.

Love Of Quilts said...

What! that poor dog. Love the video.

Belle said...

Yes, I have had tears run down my legs! What a cute video - loved it.

Blondee said...

I love the 'Laughed so hard...'


nancygrayce said...

Have a wonderful weekend and thanks for always giving me something to smile about!!

Nonnie said...

I liked them all, but especially "God grades on the cross, not the curve."
The Evian commercial was fun. How do they do that?
Homework? Glad I don't have to worry about that. Whew! The teacher will never know.
Thanks for all the smiles. Happy weekend.

Jim said...

Now I see what the young people see in Evian. Probably why we only see young people drinking it too, we don't see what they see (well, one did). :-h

Have a nice (long) weekend!!! :)

Tweedles -- that's me said...

Miss Debbie said...

We actually saw a pig in mud recently and she did look very happy!! :-)

Crystal Mary said...

What struck my funny bone the most?? Now that's hard.. The semi-colon, children have probably never heard of that!! Just LOVED the grown-ups turned into kids and dancing... what a thrill, how magic are computers... and that poor little doggie having his privacy invaded.. LOL...
Have I told you I am glad you are mad??? Hey, and I am loosing weight! and now I hope to get rid of a bald patch. Now that's something you don't have to worry about, you have beautiful hair.. xx

Zoe Byrd said...
