A pastor had been on a long flight between church conferences.




The first warning of the approaching problems came when the sign on the airplane flashed on: Fasten Your Seat Belts.
Then, after a while, a calm voice said, “We shall not be serving the beverages at this time as we are expecting a little turbulence. Please be sure your seat belt is fastened.”

As the pastor looked around the aircraft, it became obvious that many of the passengers were becoming apprehensive. Later, the voice on the intercom said, “We are so sorry that we are unable to serve the meal at this time. The turbulence is still ahead of us.”

And then the storm broke.






The ominous cracks of thunder could be heard even above the roar of the engines. Lightning lit up the darkening skies, and within moments that great plane was like a cork tossed around on a celestial ocean. One moment the airplane was lifted on terrific currents of air; the next, it dropped as if it were about to crash.

The pastor confessed that he shared the discomfort and fear of those around him. He said, “As I looked around the plane, I could see that nearly all the passengers were upset and alarmed. Some were praying. The future seemed ominous and many were wondering if they would make it through the storm.

“Then, I suddenly saw a little girl. Apparently the storm meant nothing to her. She had tucked her feet beneath her as she sat on her seat; she was reading a book and everything within her small world was calm and orderly.

“Sometimes she closed her eyes, then she would read again; then she would straighten her legs, but worry and fear were not in her world.


When the plane was being buffeted by the terrible storm when it lurched this way and that, as it rose and fell with frightening severity, when all the adults were scared half to death, that marvelous child was completely composed and unafraid.” The minister could hardly believe his eyes.

It was not surprising therefore, that when the plane finally reached its destination and all the passengers were hurrying to disembark, our pastor lingered to speak to the girl whom he had watched for such a long time.

Having commented about the storm and the behavior of the plane, he asked why she had not been afraid. The child replied, “Cause my Daddy’s the pilot, and he’s taking me home.”

There are many kinds of storms that buffet us. Physical, mental, financial, domestic, and many other storms can easily and quickly darken our skies and throw our plane into apparently uncontrollable movement. We have all known such times, and let us be honest and confess, it is much easier to be at rest when our feet are on the ground than when we are being tossed about a darkened sky.

Let us remember: Our Father is the Pilot.

He is in control and taking us home.  

Don’t worry!

While in China , a man is very sexually promiscuous and does not use protection all the time. A week after arriving Back home in the States, he wakes one morning to find His wedding tackle covered with bright green and purple spots.

Horrified, he immediately goes to see a doctor. The Doctor, never having seen anything like this before, orders some tests and tells the man to return in two days for the results.

The man returns a couple of days later and the doctor Says: “I’ve got bad news for you —you’ve contracted Mongolian VD. It’s very rare and almost unheard of here. We know very little about it.”

The man looks a little perplexed and says: “Well, give me a shot or something and fix me up, Doc.”

The doctor answers: “I’m sorry, there’s no known cure. We’re going to have to amputate your pride and joy.”

The man screams in horror, “Absolutely not! I want a second opinion.”

The doctor replies: “Well, it’s your choice. Go ahead if you want but surgery is your only choice.”

The next day, the man seeks out a Chinese doctor, Figuring that he’ll know more about the disease. The Chinese doctor examines his pride and joy and proclaims:

“Ah, yes, Mongolian VD. Vely rare disease.”

The guy says to the doctor: “Yeah, yeah, I already know that, but what can we do? My American doctor Wants to operate and amputate it!”

The Chinese doctor shakes his head and laughs: “Stupid Amelican docta always want to opelate. Make more money that way. No need to opelate!”

Oh, Thank God!” the man replies.

“Yes,” says the Chinese doctor, “You no worry! Wait two weeks. Fall off by itself!”


Two little boys, ages 8 and 10, are excessively mischievous.

They are always getting into trouble and their parents know if any mischief
occurs in their town, the two boys are probably involved.

The boys’ mother heard that a preacher in town had been successful in
disciplining children, so she asked if he would speak with her boys. The
preacher agreed, but he asked to see them individually.

The mother sent the 8 year old in the morning, with the older boy to see
the preacher in the afternoon. The preacher, a huge man with a deep booming
voice, sat the younger boy down and asked him sternly, “Do you know where
God is, son?”

The boy’s mouth dropped open, but he made no response, sitting there
wide-eyed with his mouth hanging open.

So the preacher repeated the question in an even sterner tone, “Where is
God?! Again, the boy made no attempt to answer.

The preacher raised his
voice even more and shook his finger in the boy’s face and bellowed, “WHERE
is GOD?!”

The boy screamed & bolted from the room, ran directly home & dove into his
closet, slamming the door behind him. When his older brother found him in
the closet, he asked, “What happened?”

The younger brother, gasping for breath, replied, “We are in BIG trouble
this time!” “GOD is missing, and they think WE did it!”


The Pastor entered his donkey in a race and
it won.

The Pastor was so pleased with the donkey
that he entered
tit in the race again and it won again.


The local paper read:


The Bishop was so upset with this kind of
publicity that he ordered the
Pastor not to enter the donkey in another race.


The next day the local paper headline read


This was too much for the Bishop so he
ordered the Pastor to get rid of the donkey.

The Pastor decided to give it to a Nun in a
nearby convent.


The local paper, hearing of the news, posted
the following headline the next day:


The Bishop fainted.

He informed the Nun that she would have to
get rid of the donkey so she sold it to a farmer for $10.

The next day the paper read:


This was too much for the Bishop so he
ordered the Nun to buy back the
donkey and lead it to the plains where it could run wild.

The next day the headlines read:


The Bishop was buried the next day.


The moral of the story is . . . being
concerned about public opinion can
bring you much grief and misery . . even shorten your life.

So be yourself and enjoy life.

Stop worrying about everyone else’s ass and
you’ll be a lot happier
live longer!


Father Murphy goes into a local bar in Dublin and approaches the first man he sees.

“Do you want to go to Heaven?” he asks and the man says, “Indeed I do, Father.” “Then for God’s sake,” commands the priest, “leave this pub right now.”

He then goes to the next man,

“Do you want to go to Heaven, my son?” And the man answers, “Yes Father, indeed I want to do that very thing.” “Then ye must get out of this pub right now!” orders the priest.

Father Murphy continues this throughout the pub until he comes to the last man. “Do you want to go to Heaven, man?!” exhorts the priest.

The man looks at his half-full beer, turns, looks at Father Murphy and says, “No, I don’t,Father.” “You mean to tell me, young man, that when you die, you don’t want to go to Heaven?” asks the priest incredulously. “Oh, well, when I die, yes Father, I certainly do. I thought you were getting a group together to go right now!”


Technology, science, and inventions have progressed at an accelerated rate during the hundred years of the 20th century, more so than any other century.
