Oh and this last one isn’t meant to be a funny, but it would seem, in the wake of the latest judicial proceedings in the Brexit saga, that the joke is on the British people – from our own Brexit voting leaflet prior to the vote:
Really. We can’t help it, we are ruled over by evil people, hidden behind the scenes. I ask you to bear with us as we try to get our country back from these scumbags.
Here we have Toxic Tessie our new PM:
And here’s your first stop contact for all foreign counties, our new Foreign Secretary, Boris ‘Buffoon’ Johnson
It’s rather sad. I have to say on a serious note that appointing Boris as Foreign Secretary is designed to reduce our standing in the world, in order to persuade us all to scuttle back into the EU before we’ve even managed to leave.
A friend sent me this last night, and I laughed. Oh how I laughed – great hollow howls of laughter at the absurdity (and the truth of the situation). It’s a satire imagining looking back on the War on Terror from 30 years in the future. It’s a must see!
It’s been one of those weeks – very up and down here with rather more stress at certain points than I would have liked. I hope your week has been more balanced than mine! However the great weight God has placed on my heart for South Africa continues to weigh heavily – please will you keep them in your prayers and keep thanking God for hearing our prayers and answering them? I hope He hears my prayers, anyway!
So for goodness sake let’s have a moment of levity – can we? I think we should, and this will hopefully have you giggling like a kid.
Now I have to confess that this is an April Fools joke. I think however that it would make the perfect tool for a complete take over, don’t you? I can imagine we’d all be rolling around getting more and more drunk, and sounding like Smurfs while the tanks roll by.
Gosh my humour is getting dark these days! 😉
Ah well, please enjoy your Sabbath tonight and tomorrow – hug your spouse, and spend time with your kids. Pray, of course, and also rest. The battle, ongoing, will wait for a day – a day which is for the LORD.
…said to me many times when I was at school, where I was bullied; said indeed by the bullies themselves.Of course their words hurt me, and destroyed my self-esteem. It was only at the point where I stood up to my teachers and became a rebel, that suddenly I was ‘popular’ at the point where I was leaving school. In fact the bullying stopped when I had speech training coaching. As my voice changed, and my confidence rose, the girls changed towards me.
Yet we see sarcasm around us all the time. I hear it even when evangelists sneer at others, giving them demeaning epithets to dismiss them – ‘cotton candy Christians’ is one I’ve heard a lot. Ugh!
How many times do we as adults say the very same thing?
Sarcasm is seen as a sophisticated form of humour, it’s seen as a sign of intelligence in humour. So what does God think ofpeople who use words they don’t mean which are hurtful and cruel? (And it would be just as bad to say things which are falsely nice and flattering when they are not meant!).
Proverbs 26:18-19 Like a madman who throws Firebrands, arrows, and death, 19 So is the man who deceives his neighbor (acquaintance, friend) And then says, “Was I not joking?” (AMP)
I think we need to be careful in our walk, and in our TALK!
