my wife's blog

This is a portion of my wife's most current  blog. It has been a very dry fall and winter so far. Today we did wake  up to  1/4 inch of snow.
I thought I would add a little "attempted humor" to start.


So dry the Baptists are sprinkling and Methodists are spitting
So dry the trees are bribing the dogs.
Its so dry here that the fire hydrants are chasing the dogs around.

So dry I’m spitting cotton.
It’s so dry that the cows are giving evaporated milk
It’s so dry you’re only permitted to eat watermelon between 8pm and 8am.
It’s so dry the government has announced a water pistol buy back scheme.
It’s so dry, crooks are siphoning off radiators instead of gas tanks.
It’s so dry, they’re encouraging people to pee in the pool.

Happy Valentine's Day to my bride of 34+ years

Thank you Lord for providing me with a Wife Of Noble Character.

Proverbs 31:10-31

The Wife of Noble Character
10 A wife of noble character who can find?
    She is worth far more than rubies.
11 Her husband has full confidence in her
    and lacks nothing of value.
12 She brings him good, not harm,
    all the days of her life.
13 She selects wool and flax
    and works with eager hands.
14 She is like the merchant ships,
    bringing her food from afar.
15 She gets up while it is still night;
    she provides food for her family
    and portions for her female servants.
16 She considers a field and buys it;
    out of her earnings she plants a vineyard.
17 She sets about her work vigorously;
    her arms are strong for her tasks.
18 She sees that her trading is profitable,
    and her lamp does not go out at night.
19 In her hand she holds the distaff
    and grasps the spindle with her fingers.
20 She opens her arms to the poor
    and extends her hands to the needy.
21 When it snows, she has no fear for her household;
    for all of them are clothed in scarlet.
22 She makes coverings for her bed;
    she is clothed in fine linen and purple.
23 Her husband is respected at the city gate,
    where he takes his seat among the elders of the land.
24 She makes linen garments and sells them,
    and supplies the merchants with sashes.
25 She is clothed with strength and dignity;
    she can laugh at the days to come.
26 She speaks with wisdom,
    and faithful instruction is on her tongue.
27 She watches over the affairs of her household
    and does not eat the bread of idleness.
28 Her children arise and call her blessed;
    her husband also, and he praises her:
29 “Many women do noble things,
    but you surpass them all.”
30 Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting;
    but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.
31 Honor her for all that her hands have done,
    and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.
 Much Love, Dennis

natural disaster

Three men are put against a wall to be shot. The first man says "Tornado!" in a desperate attempt to get away. The shooters look behind them to see if it's true, while the man escapes. The second man yells "Earthquake!" The shooters look for cover while the man gets away. The third person yells "Fire!"

I've always been somewhat leery about people who referred to disasters and bad circumstances as an "Act of God". God is not the author of evil. Even insurance companies have certain situations that they will not cover because they use the term "Act of God".

God is always good and never evil after he offered all people the opportunity to accept His Grace through Jesus. I'm not a Bible scholar, but I just don't see God  punishing people when he tells us that he will never leave us or forsake us. There are many Scriptures to back up my position.
much love, Dennis
