"A Flashback Funny"
YOU'RE NOT OLD UNLESS YOU CAN REMEMBER...
...being sent to the drugstore to test vacuum tubes for the TV.
...when Kool-Aid was the only other drink for kids, other than milk and sodas.
...when there were two types of sneakers for boys: high tops and low tops.
...when boys couldn't wear anything but leather shoes to school. (And shirts tucked in, belts had to be worn, and skirts no higher than mid-knee.)
...when it took five minutes for the TV to warm up. (Remember watching test patterns, and that itty-bitty screen?)
...when nearly everyone's parents smoked and cigarettes were $3 a carton.
...when all your friends got their hair cut at the kitchen table.
...when nearly everyone's mom was at home when the kids got there. (Usually with hot homemade cookies and milk.)
...when nobody owned a pure-bred dog.
...when a dime was a decent allowance, and a quarter a huge bonus. (And penny candy?)
...when you'd reach into a muddy gutter for a penny.
...when girls neither dated nor kissed until late high school, if then.
...when all your teachers wore either neckties or had their hair done, every day.
...when you got your windshield cleaned, oil checked, and gas pumped, without asking, for free, every time. (And gas was 19 cents a gallon?)
...when any parent could discipline any kid, or feed him, or use him to carry groceries, and nobody, not even the kid, thought a thing of it.
...when it was considered a great privilege to be taken out to dinner at a REAL restaurant with your parents.
"God's Baseball Team"Bob and the Lord stood by to observe a baseball game. The Lord's team was playing Satan's team. The Lord's team was at bat the score was tied zero to zero, and it was the bottom of the ninth inning with two outs.
They continued to watch as a batter stepped up to the plate whose name was Love. Love swung at the first pitch and hit a single, because Love never fails.
The next batter was named Faith, who also got a single because Faith works with Love.
The next batter up was named Godly Wisdom. Satan wound up and threw the first pitch. Godly wisdom looked it over and let it pass. Ball one!
Three more pitches and Godly Wisdom walked, because Godly Wisdom never swings at what Satan throws.
The bases are loaded. The Lord then turns to Bob and tells him He is now going to bring in His star player. Up to bat stepped Grace.
Bob said "he sure doesn't look like much!" Satan's whole team relaxed when they saw Grace. Thinking he had won the game, Satan wound up and fired his first pitch.
To the shock of everyone, GRACE HIT THE BALL HARDER THAN ANYONE HAD EVER SEEN.
But Satan was not worried; his center fielder let very few get by. He went up for the ball, but it went right through his glove, hit him on the head and sent him crashing to the ground. Then it continued over the fence for a home run! The Lord's team won.
The Lord then asked Bob if he knew why Love, Faith, and Godly Wisdom could get on base, but could not win the game.
Bob answered that he did not know why. The Lord explained, "If your love, faith and wisdom had won the game, you would think you had done it by yourself. Love, Faith, and Wisdom will get you on base, but only MY Grace can get you home. MY Grace is the only thing Satan cannot steal."
May God go before you today and show you his Grace in everything you do.
