Shelia Shares

Stress and pressure can accompany the holidays. Loneliness and loss can accompany the holidays. Envy and greed can accompany the holidays. We can choose to focus on what we lack or we can thank God for what we have – and we each have much.

Proverbs 17:22 reads, "A merry heart does good, like medicine, but a broken spirit dries the bones." So, for the start of your holidays, here is a bit of laughter from Jim McComas. As he was traveling and preaching, he learned a few lessons. Celebrate the Thanksgiving and Christmas season with laughter.

"Lessons From The Road"
by Jim McComas

Did you know that when you take a shower it generates lots of heat and steam?

Did you know that if you accidentally leave the bathroom door open, that heat and steam spreads through your entire hotel room?

Did you know that a smoke detector can't tell the difference between heat and steam from a fire and the heat and steam from the aforementioned shower?

Did you know that smoke detectors these days are extremely loud? Especially at 7:00 a.m.?

Did you know that you can pull the smoke detector out of the wall, take the battery out of it, throw it across the room, put a pillow over it and shut it in a desk drawer and it still won't stop being extremely loud?

Did you know that if you hear a siren at a time like that, it will give you a panic attack?

Did you know that if you go to the window and see fire trucks roaring into your hotel parking lot you can get your clothes on in twenty seconds flat?

Did you know that the city of Conway, South Carolina has a rapid response fire team that sends multiple units to the scene in a matter of minutes?

I didn't either. But, I do now!

So.......How was your Sunday morning?
