Sunday Two-Fer!

This shows both sides of the sign. This one was way high up and the focus isn't that great, but I had to zoom in as much as I could. I saw this one that day I went to Albany to meet Jamie Dawn. It has one of those big signs really high like motels have. I don't know how they change it or how often.


There was a little old lady, who every morning. stepped onto her
front porch, raised her arms to the sky, and shouted: 'PRAISE THE LORD!'
One day an atheist moved into the house next door. He became
irritated at the little old lady.
Every morning he'd step onto his front porch after her and yell:
Time passed with the two of them carrying on this way every day.
One morning, in the middle of winter, the little old lady stepped
onto her front porch and shouted: 'PRAISE THE LORD! Please Lord, I have no
food and I am starving, provide for me, oh Lord!
The next morning she stepped out onto her porch and there were two
huge bags of groceries sitting there.
The atheist neighbor jumped out of the hedges and shouted:
The little old lady threw her arms into the air and shouted: 'PRAISE

(Thanks for the joke Sandy!)

Your joke reminds me of the simple all trusting faith of a distant relative of mine. Flora and Faucett Olsen had been Babtist missionaries in China. One day when she was very old an uncle of mine bumped into Flora on a street corner and asked. "Where are you going." She replied "To the hospital to visit a friend." "How will you get there", my uncle asked. "Oh God, will provide and find me a way." he paused. "Well God has provided for I will take you, and not only that I will bring you back". Flora saw that encounter as just another little miracle in her "charmed" and charming life.

Your signs are always good. And all we have to do is read yours and ours, they mostly are all good.
Of course the deeper we get into the South the more church signs there must be!

LOL, LOL..Very very cute, Rachel....!

I was over at Jamie's and was just so touched and thrilled by her "tribute"...I wrote a long comment and Blogger ATE IT! (lol)...So, I went back just a few minutes ago...I finally was able to post a 'Thank You' to Jamie but in truth, it wasn't as good as the first one! LOL!

I will send you the lyrics to that song....What Jamie had on there was just the last 8 or so bars...It is a WONDERFUL song, written by Cole Porter, called "EVERYTIME WAS SAY GOODBYE"...I used to sing it "back in the day",as they say...!
I sure would love to meet you too, Rachel....Well, maybe someday that will happen. I sure do hope so.

I am now ready for another.
Here is hoping you are alright.

I love the little old lady story!
The Church signs are good too. The first one has several different meanings depending on how it's read.

Rachel...You don't have to thank me every time I send you a joke that you can use...Of course, if I made the joke up myself, then you could thank me. The joke was a forwarded joke from t*mmy.

Loved your Sunday sign and your visit.
