Kids Advice on Marriage

Reminder from a Firefly

   A firefly landed on my notebook the other day. During the daytime one cannot appreciate its luminous body and it looks just like a regular bug with wings. However, I recognized it because I had played with hundreds of these little insects when I was young when I spent a summer in the mountains where my Dad worked. I said hello to my tiny friend. Just days earlier I wondered if fireflies were still around because I wanted to show them to my grandkids.

  Then I remembered the screaming magnificent constellation in the pitch black Nigerian evening sky where I visited last November. There is no electricity in Kagoro at night. Here in Los Angeles the same stars hover above us every evening but we never appreciate it. We never see it.

   Then I remembered all the difficult situations I've faced and how God miraculously helped me through them. That same resource of divine power is still (and has always been) there. God never changes. We do. Our memories do. We go about our lives forgetting to tap that incredible resource from a loving God.

   Christ said that IF we increased our faith to just the size of a miniscule mustard seed we could move mountains. I haven't moved any mountains lately. I guess my faith is a lot smaller than a mustard seed. How about you?

   TGIF people!

"You don't have enough faith," Jesus told them. "I tell you the truth, if you had faith even as small as a mustard seed, you could say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and it would move. Nothing would be impossible."
--- Matthew 17:20

Kid's Advice on Marriage
Contributed by Charlie of New Jersey


1. HOW DO YOU DECIDE WHO TO MARRY?

  • You got to find somebody who likes the same stuff. Like, if you like sports, she should like it that you like sports, and she should keep the chips and dip coming.
    --- Alan, age 10




  • No person really decides before they grow up who they're going to marry. God decides it all way before, and you get to find out later who you're stuck with.
    --- Kristen, age 10

2. WHAT IS THE RIGHT AGE TO GET MARRIED?

  • Twenty-three is the best age because you know the person FOREVER by then.
    --- Camille, age 10

3. HOW CAN A STRANGER TELL IF TWO PEOPLE ARE MARRIED?

  • You might have to guess, based on whether they seem to be yelling at the same kids.
    --- Derrick, age 8


4. WHAT DO YOU THINK YOUR MOM AND DAD HAVE IN COMMON?

  • Both don't want any more kids.
    --
    - Lori, age 8

5. WHAT DO MOST PEOPLE DO ON A DATE?

  • Dates are for having fun, and people should use them to get to know each other. Even boys have something to say if you listen long enough.
    --- Lynnette, age 8
    (isn't she a treasure)


  • On the first date, they just tell each other lies and that usually gets them interested enough to go for a second date.
    --- Martin, age 10

6. WHEN IS IT OKAY TO KISS SOMEONE?

  • When they're rich.
    --- Pam, age 7
  • The law says you have to be eighteen, so I wouldn't want to mess with that.
    --- Curt, age 7
  • The rule goes like this: If you kiss someone, then you should marry them and have kids with them. It's the right thing to do.
    --- Howard, age 8

7. IS IT BETTER TO BE SINGLE OR MARRIED?

  • It's better for girls to be single but not for boys. Boys need someone to clean up after them.
    --- Anita, age 9
    (bless you child)

8. HOW WOULD THE WORLD BE DIFFERENT IF PEOPLE DIDN'T GET MARRIED?

  • There sure would be a lot of kids to explain, wouldn't there?
    --- Kelvin, age 8

And the #1 Favorite is...

9. HOW WOULD YOU MAKE A MARRIAGE WORK?

  • Tell your wife that she looks pretty, even if she looks like a dump truck.
    --- Ricky, age 8

Dan Akroyd Audition

Some women actually find Dan attractive. I guess humor is pretty up there in the attractive quotient. Here's Dan Akroyd's audtion for Saturday Night Live. He oozed with talent from the start. I looked for his Julia Child skit but (believe it or not) it's not in Youtube. Must be some legal mumbo jumbo going on there. Enjoy!

Did you know that Tsunamis are man-made?

I didn't think it was possible until I saw this shocking video.

Wind Beneath My Wings

Last Sunday we remembered 15th years past that awful day when the world woke up to the reality that there are strangers who want to kill us --- believing that this will solve their perceived problems of inequality. Bette Midler's rendition of "The Wind Beneath My Wings" was a fitting THANK YOU to our fallen friends.
TGIF people! Be good this weekend. There's a reason why you're still living and breathing in this world.
