I absolutely love to laugh and make others laugh. So, I’m starting off with a joke by my grandson, who will be turning 8 years old in a few days. Here it is:
Grandson: Papa, why did the chicken cross the road?
Me: To get to the other side?
Grandson: No, to go to the idiot’s house, of course!
Me: Oh, I should have known this.
Me: Who’s there?
Grandson: The chicken.
Me: Whaaaaat? [as I laugh at how he “got me” and the humor of this “groaner” joke]
I hope you had a chuckle or at least this made you smile.
This is what you can expect from joining in sharing my life with you. Some laughs in at least a blog post a week. Maybe every other week as I can really get myself booked up!
I invite you to sign up to be notified via email when I have a new post. And, I’ll be using this to let you know of cool, fun stuff I have plans of doing from this blog. Please go to the right and put in your email address. Go ahead and cross the road and knock on the door. You may be very surprised to find out who answers!
Now, what’s up with the title of my blog? Glad you asked!
In the Gospel of Luke (or I like to call him Dr Luke) there are powerful verses that always weighs much upon my thoughts when making decisions, “Is there anyone here who, planning to build a new house, doesn’t first sit down and figure the cost so you’ll know if you can complete it? If you only get the foundation laid and then run out of money, you’re going to look pretty foolish. Everyone passing by will poke fun at you: ‘He started something he couldn’t finish.’ “Simply put, if you’re not willing to take what is dearest to you, whether plans or people, and kiss it good-bye, you can’t be my disciple. Luke 14:28-30, 33 The Message
I don’t know how this speaks to you but I never want to look foolish or have people making fun of me. This certainly has happened as you’ll learn when you read my story. The depth of what Jesus is speaking of, and into my life from these verses, is much more substantive than being teased in school. I believe there are eternal consequences He is referring to here. Yes, to consider the cost is mighty.
I’d love to tell you more why I started this blog. Now that you’ve “knocked on the door” come on in and let me tell you.
