Word For It. . .

2Chronicles7:14-“If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”

Why? Why? Why?

Posted by wordforit on March 7, 2008

Why do we press harder on a remote control when we know the batteries are getting dead?

Why do banks charge a fee on “insufficient funds” when they know there is not enough money?

Why does someone believe it when you say there are four billion stars, but check when you say the paint is wet?

Why do they use sterilized needles for death by lethal injection?

Why doesn’t Tarzan have a beard?

Why does Superman stop bullets with his chest, but ducks when you throw a revolver at him?

Why do Kamikaze pilots wear helmets?

Whose idea was it to put an “S” in the word “lisp”?

If people evolved from apes, why are there still apes?

Why is it that no matter what color bubble bath you use, the bubbles are always white?

Is there ever a day that mattresses are not on sale?

Why do people constantly return to the refrigerator with hopes that something new to eat will have materialized?

Why do people keep running over a string a dozen times with their vacuum cleaner, then reach down, pick it up, examine it, then put it down to give the vacuum one more chance?

Why is it that no plastic bag will open from the end on your first try?

How do those dead bugs get into those enclosed light fixtures?

When we are in the supermarket and someone rams our ankle with a shopping cart then apologizes for doing so, why do we say, “It’s all right?” Well, it isn’t all right, so why don’t we say, “That really hurt! You should watch where you’re going!”  (Remember, it’s a joke!!)

Why is it that whenever we attempt to catch something that’s falling off the table we always manage to knock something else over?

In winter, why do we try to keep the house as warm as it was in summer when we complained about the heat?

How come we never hear father-in-law jokes?

And the FAVORITE. . .

The statistics on sanity is that one out of every four persons are suffering from some sort of mental illness. Think of your three best friends — if they’re okay, then it’s you.

    It came thru “anonymous” but don’t want any gov’t agents at my house! LOL

    We can laugh at ourselves in a harmless way and these are undeniably true to the human condition!

    You do an excellent work, Angie, so don’t let it get to you—it’s all going to come to an end, regardless! It’s amazing to watch but what’s more amazing is that so many will deny the truth of what’s happening. I keep reminding myself that we are to be a watchman (Ezekiel 33) and those who won’t listen and repent are setting themselves up for disaster, not the ones trying to warn. When we have pols who are flagrantly disrespectful and leading so many to a deathtrap, all we can do is yell, “Hey! Watch out for that tree!” (George of the Jungle came to mind??;-)).
