Valentines Day is evil. You read right. VALENTINES DAY IS EVIL!!!!
Now why would I want to say such a thing?
It is a phony holiday. Why would people need a special day to tell someone that they love them? If a person truly loves someone, he or she would tell that person through out the year.
It is a measuring stick used by many women to supposedly tell them how much their supposed “man” loves them. Love is defined by a dollar amount. A man is measured by his wallet not by his heart. Do you see the commercials advertising expensive stuff for women to buy their partners? You see all the expensive diamonds that a man should by his wife or girl friend.
It is holiday that carries different significant meaning to the sexes. If a man forgets Valentines Day and does not buy a gift for his sweat heart, he is in BIG trouble. He will be sleeping in the dog house. If a woman forgets the day, there is hardly a major fight in fact the man feels a ton of weight lifted off of his shoulders.
Did I tell you the Valentines Day is EVIL? It is.
If Valentines Days was enough to express your love for someone you would not need sweetness day!!! Another phony holiday.
What is true love and how should it be expressed? Look at Jesus. He lived the perfect life and surrendered it on a cross so we can live. Love is sacrificial it puts others ahead of ourselves.
Because of the weather I have become a mall walker. Yes. One of those people. These are a few observations I have made during my countless laps making my way around the mall.
There is never and I mean never a good enough reason to wear your pajamas to the mall. No, you do not look cool sitting at the Star Bucks stand reading your book or IPad while sipping your coffee looking like you just crawled out of bed.
The food court is the worst smelling area of the mall. There is of course one exception and that is when one is passing by the Cinnamon Bun store. Oh how I love that smell.
The scariest place to be walking is right by the small walk up clinic. All those coughing sniffling people make me wonder if I am going to catch something while passing that small area of the mall.
People need to put away their phones while they are walking. They are unable to walk in a straight line or even pay attention to where they are walking. The one expection to this is when they stop right in their tracks and you end up running into them.
There are way too many woman’s shoes and clothing stores in a mall..
Those are just some of the thing I have noticed during my walks. I cannot wait until the weather gets better so I can do my weekend walks outside again.
A distraught senior citizen
phoned her doctor’s office.
“Is it true,” she wanted to know,
“that the medication
you prescribed has to be taken
for the rest of my life?”
“‘Yes, I’m afraid so,”‘ the doctor told her.
There was a moment of silence
before the senior lady replied,
“I’m wondering, then,
just how serious is my condition
because this prescription is marked
on the operating table
and he insisted that his son,a renowned surgeon,
perform the operation.
As he was about to get the anesthesia,
he asked to speak to his son.
“Yes, Dad , what is it?”
“Don’t be nervous, son;
do your best,
and just remember,
if it doesn’t go well,
if something happens to me,
is going to come and
live with you and your wife….”
Eventually you will reach a point
when you stop lying about your age
and start bragging about it. This is so true. I love
to hear them say “you don’t look that old.”
The older we get,
the fewer things
seem worth waiting in line for.
try to turn back their odometers.
I want people to know why
I look this way.
I’ve traveled a long way
and some of the roads weren’t paved.
When you are dissatisfied
and would like to go back to youth,
think of Algebra.
One of the many things
no one tells you about aging
is that it is such a nice change
from being young.
Ah, being young is beautiful,
but being old is comfortable.
First you forget names,
then you forget faces.
Then you forget to pull up your zipper…
it’s worse when
you forget to pull it down.
Two guys, one old, one young,
are pushing their carts around- WalMart
when they collide.
The old guy says to the young guy,
“Sorry about that. I’m looking for my wife,
and I guess I wasn’t paying attention to where
The young guy says, “That’s OK, it’s a coincidence.
I’m looking for my wife, too…
I can’t find her and I’m getting a little desperate.”
The old guy says, “Well, maybe I can help you find her…
what does she look like?”
The young guy says, “Well, she is 27 years old, tall,
with red hair, blue eyes, is buxom…wearing no bra,
long legs, and is wearing short shorts.
What does your wife look like?’
To which the old guy says, doesn’t matter,
let’s look for yours.”
(And this final one especially for me,)
“Lord, keep Your arm around my shoulder
and Your hand over my mouth!”

I wish I had faith like the Centurion. It can be so hard to even have the faith like the size of a muster seed or a grain of sand.
The Faith of the Centurion
7 When Jesus had finished saying all this to the people who were listening, he entered Capernaum. 2 There a centurion’s servant, whom his master valued highly, was sick and about to die. 3 The centurion heard of Jesus and sent some elders of the Jews to him, asking him to come and heal his servant. 4 When they came to Jesus, they pleaded earnestly with him, “This man deserves to have you do this, 5 because he loves our nation and has built our synagogue.” 6 So Jesus went with them.
He was not far from the house when the centurion sent friends to say to him: “Lord, don’t trouble yourself, for I do not deserve to have you come under my roof. 7 That is why I did not even consider myself worthy to come to you. But say the word, and my servant will be healed. 8 For I myself am a man under authority, with soldiers under me. I tell this one, ‘Go,’ and he goes; and that one, ‘Come,’ and he comes. I say to my servant, ‘Do this,’ and he does it.” 9 When Jesus heard this, he was amazed at him, and turning to the crowd following him, he said, “I tell you, I have not found such great faith even in Israel.” 10 Then the men who had been sent returned to the house and found the servant well.
