It's a Fabulous Fall Friday--time For some Funnies! (Can you tell I felt the need for some alliteration this morning?)

Next weekend, I'm speaking at a women's retreat at Mecklenburg Community Church, so please pray for me and for the event. Also, pray for my friend Sara who is the other speaker, and my daughter-in-law Nichole who will be leading worship. The retreat theme (From the Inside Out) is exciting in itself, but there are so many amazing elements including dance, drama, etc., that have gone into the planning of this retreat I just can't wait!

In preparation for the opportunity to encourage women, I discovered these thought provoking truths that I don't plan to include in my talk next weekend, so I decided to share them here:

1.Don't be irreplaceable. If you can't be replaced, you can't be promoted.

2.Always remember that you're unique. Just like everyone else.

3.If you think nobody cares if you're alive, try missing a couple of car payments.

4.Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

5.Some days you're the bug; some days you're the windshield.

6.The quickest way to double your money in this tough economy is to fold it in half and put it back in your pocket.

7.There are two theories to arguing with women. Neither one works.

8.Never, under any circumstances, take a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.

Happy Friday!


  1. These are great .. just might have to steal a few of them and repeat later :)

    Hope next weekend goes great!

  2. Sandy,
    Praying for you! I know the conference will be a blessing to those attending and to you as you lead. Thanks for the funnies. They are great.

  3. Heather and Jennifer, your prayers mean the world to me! Thank you both. I'm expecting God to do great things in spite of me this weekend! His strength is perfected in my many weaknesses.

  4. I love the bug and windshield - sounds like a Mr. Horne joke.
