For Monday ...

The top 10 signs the economy is bad...
10. CEOs are now playing miniature golf.
9. I got a pre-declined credit card in the mail.
8. I went to buy a toaster oven and they gave me a bank.
7. Hot Wheels and Matchbox car companies are trading higher than GM.
6. McDonalds is now selling the Quarter-Ouncer.
5. People in Beverly Hills have fired their nannies and are learning their children's names.
4. The most highly-paid job is jury duty.
3. Motel Six stopped leaving the lights on.
2. The Mafia is laying off judges.
1. If the bank returns your check marked as insufficient funds, you have to call them and ask if they meant you or them.
And there's this...

I always give 100% at work:
13% Monday
22% Tuesday
26% Wednesday
35% Thursday
4% Friday

And here's a great quote (that's serious)...
"A man can eat his dinner without understanding exactly how food nourishes him. A man can accept what Christ has done without knowing how it works: indeed, he certainly would not know how it works until he has accepted it."
- C.S. Lewis

This was a perfect post for Monday with this debt ceiling looming over us. Thanks for the laugh - AND the great quote. I love C.S. Lewis - what a brilliant man!

That comment is so true by CS Lewis. You can't understand being born again until you are born again and you can't understand salvation until you experience it.

and you have to believe before you can experience either one.

My hometown...

I am thinking of my hometown now. Mission, Texas. And McAllen, Texas. And Mercedes, Texas, where I was born. And Donna, Texas, so near there...
