With that in mind, I came across a few jokes to lighten the day:
Joke #1- At one point during a game, the coach called one of his 9-year-old baseball players aside and asked, "Do you understand what cooperation is? What a team is?" The little boy nodded in the affirmative.
"Do you understand that what matters is whether we win or lose together as a team?" The little boy nodded yes. So," the coach continued, "I'm sure you know, when an out is called, you shouldn't argue, curse, attack the umpire, or call him an idiot or blind. Do you understand all that?" The little boy nodded yes again. He continued, "And when I take you out of the game so another boy gets a chance to play too, it's not good sportsmanship to call your coach stupid is it?" The little boy shook his head NO. "GOOD," said the coach, "Now go over there and explain all that to your grandmother."
Joke #2- The airhead tried to sell his old car. He was having a lot of problems selling it, because the car had 250,000 miles on it.
One day he mentioned his problem to a friend he worked with. The friend told him, "There is a way to make your car easier to sell, but it's not legal." "That doesn't matter," replied the airhead, "as long as I can sell the car." "Okay," said the friend. "Here's the address of a friend of mine. He owns a car repair shop. Tell him I sent you and he will turn the odometer in your car back to 50,000 miles. Then it shouldn't be a problem to sell." The following weekend, the airhead made the trip to the mechanic. A month later, the friend asked the airhead, "Did you sell your car?" "No," replied the airhead, "why should I? It only has 50,000 miles on it."
Joke #3- In a morning Bible study, a group of women were studying how to live in a loving relationship with your husband. The women were asked, "How many of you love your husbands?"
All the women raised their hands. Then they were asked, "When was the last time you told your husband you loved him?" A few women answered today, some said yesterday, and some didn't remember.
The women were then asked to take their phones and send the text message, "I love you, sweetheart." After a few minutes, the women were asked to exchange phones and read aloud the responding text messages.
Here are some of the replies: 1. Who is this? 2. Uh, mother of my children, are you sick? 3. I love you too. 4. What now? Did you wreck the car again? 5. I don't understand what you mean. 6. What did you do now? 7. ?!!??? 8. Don't beat about the bush, just tell me how much you need? 9. Am I dreaming? 10. If you don't tell me who this message is actually for, someone will die. 11. I thought we agreed we would not drink during the day. 12. Your mother is coming to stay, isn't she?
What can we learn today? If nothing else, we could say “I love you” a little more… So in the spirit of practicing what I preach…. God loves you, and so do I!
