I asked my wife, "What do you love most about me? My tremendous athletic ability or my superior intellect?"

"What I love most about you", Cheri quickly replied, "is your enormous sense of humor."


I had an appointment with my pulmonologist this week. This was just a biannual follow-up. He told me that things were looking okay except for one area.
Apparently I need to gain some weight. I know that I lost more than I needed 2 years ago, but I have been gradually putting on a pound or 2.
Surely adding a few lbs. will be easier than losing a few :-)  I had a big lunch today and now I feel like a balloon about to burst.
much love, Dennis

My Mother In-law

Care for Your Mother-in-law

A man, his wife and his mother-in-law went on vacation to the Holy Land. While they were there, the mother-in-law passed away.
The undertaker told them, You can have her shipped home for $5,000 or you can bury her here in the Holy Land for $150.
The man thought about it and told him he would just have her shipped home.

The undertaker asked, Why would you spend $5,000 to ship your mother-in-law home, when it would be wonderful to have her buried here and spend only $150?

The man replied, a man died here 2,000 years ago, was buried here, and three days later he rose from the dead. I just can't take that chance.
If you would have told me 15 years ago that I would spend 30 minutes every day studying the Bible, I would have called you a nut.
I've grown in my relationship with Jesus from my current circumstances. Believe it or not, the last 10 years have been very good for me. I was a Christian before my accident, but I would have never experienced the growth that my accident led me through. My mother in-law has laid hands on me several times during prayer and helped me to understand scripture when I was at an impasse.

Right now I'm asking for prayer for her. She has a class reunion this Friday and Saturday and is really wanting to attend. Darla has a very bad infection in her inner ear and sinus, causing a considerable amount of pain. She has been to the doctor and is taking antibiotics plus pain relieving ear drops.

Lord God, please remove the pain and infection causing the pain so that she can attend and enjoy her class reunion .
I pray this in Jesus name, Amen
