God will provide

 

 

A young woman brought home her fiance to meet her parents. After dinner, her mother tells her father to find out about the young man.  So the father invites the fiance to his study for a drink.

“So what are your plans?” the father asks the young man.
“I’m going to be a Bible scholar.” he replies.

“A Bible scholar. Hmmm,” the father says. “Admirable, but what will you do to provide a nice house for my daughter to live in, as she’s accustomed to?”

“I will study,” the young man replies, “and God will provide for us.”

“And how will you buy her a beautiful engagement ring, such as she deserves?” asks the father.

“I will concentrate on my studies,” the young man replies, “and God will provide for us.”

“And children?” asks the father. “How will you support children?”

“Don’t worry, sir, God will provide,” replies the fiance.

The conversation proceeds like this, and each time the father questions, the young idealist insists that God will provide.

Later, the mother asks, “How did it go, Honey?”

The father answers, “He has no job and no plans, but the good news is he thinks I’m God.”

Yard sale anger

 

 

A woman was taking her time browsing through everything at a friend’s yard sale. As she picked up a blue vase and studied it, she said to her friend, “My husband is going to be really mad I stopped at your yard sale.”

“I’m sure he’ll understand when you tell him about all the bargains you found,” her friend replied.

“Normally, yes,” she said. “But he just broke his leg, and he’s waiting for me to take him to the hospital to have it set.”

Fall back: be alert for pedestrians and bicyclists

 

Time change this weekend

The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) reminds motorists, bicyclists and pedestrians that it will be getting darker one hour earlier with the end of daylight saving time at 2 a.m. on Sunday, Nov. 2. It will be important for motorists to be aware of pedestrians and bicyclists on the drive home, as they will be much less visible. Pedestrians and bicyclists should wear bright, reflective clothing in order to be seen more easily.

“Driving becomes more challenging for motorists during the first week of the time change, especially in school zones” said State Transportation Director Kirk T. Steudle. “Drivers need to pay close attention and eliminate distractions while driving, and pedestrians and bicyclists should take every precaution to make themselves as visible as possible. We want everyone to make it home every night.”

The University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute (UMTRI) says that pedestrians are more at risk of serious injury from a motor vehicle crash in the weeks following the return to standard time. The most dangerous time is the first hour after darkness.

According to the National Highway Traffic Administration, 4,743 pedestrians died in traffic crashes in 2012, while an estimated 76,000 were injured (with 14,000 of those injured being children 15 and younger). The majority of pedestrian fatalities (70 percent) occur during dark conditions between 6 p.m. and 5:59 a.m.

Motorists are reminded that bicyclists are permitted to ride on most roadways in Michigan. Bicyclists are reminded that, as legal roadway users, they are required to obey all traffic laws, signs, and signals.

Pick a hymn

One Sunday a pastor told his congregation that the church needed some extra money and asked the people to prayerfully consider giving a little extra in the offering plate. He said that whoever gave the most would be able to pick out three hymns.

The offering plates were passed, then brought to the front and placed on the altar. The pastor was about to pray over them when he glanced down and noticed that someone had placed a $1,000 bill in the offering! He was so excited that he immediately shared his joy with the congregation and said he’d like to personally thank the person who placed the money in the plate.
A sweet little old lady sitting in the back shyly raised her hand. The pastor asked her to come to the front. When she did, he told her how wonderful it was that she gave so much and asked her to pick out three hymns.
Her eyes brightened and a big grin spread across her face as she looked out over the congregation. She then pointed to the three most handsome men in the pews and said, “I’ll take him and him and him.”
