My wife said she wanted a “fairy-tale romance,” so I’ve locked her in a tower. – @TONYCOWARDS
Most of us grew up listening to fairy tales. My favorite was “Jack and the Beanstalk”. I imagined myself as Jack, climbing up the huge beanstalk that reached high above the clouds. That’s really funny because in elementary school I was the kid whose feet could not leave the big knot on the rope when it was time to climb it.
There was an old woman who lived in a shoe. She got her own TLC show. The end. – Ryan Anderson @KOLCHAK
Fairy tales take us to magical places where pixie dust flows freely and no one is ever cranky. Sounds great, doesn’t it? Oh, but I guess there were those few dwarfs in “Sleeping Beauty” was one of them cranky? LOL – well I don’t remember – oh, I think it was grumpy. Same difference…
So if we avoid grumpy we should be in pretty good shape. Oh, but there was that Evil Queen chick – yeah. Hmm… this is sounding less like perfection and more like real life all the time. What’s with that?
Cinderella’s fairy godmother turned her rags into a gown, mice into horses, and a pumpkin into endless lattes for her and her BFFs to enjoy. – @THELAURENOBRIEN
There seem to be issues with all fairy tales. Every one of them have something evil or malicious to be aware of.
I have never worked out the moral to Humpty Dumpty. Is it, “Don’t let horses perform medical procedures”? – Ricky Gervais
I’ll tell you my fairy tale…
Jesus and Me
Once upon a time, there was a happy baby. She never cried but giggled all the time. Her daddy said it was because she had gas, but it was because she was happy. He should not buy into those old wives’ tales. The baby laughed and giggled at everything. She decided that nothing was going to make her unhappy.
One day in grade school she tried to read a book. The letters on the page began to dance and it was very entertaining to the little girl, but she wanted to learn how to make the letters stop dancing so she could make sense of the book. Her mommy and daddy enrolled her in something called special education.
The little girl paid close attention to the nice teacher and worked very hard with exercises and reading glasses. She finally learned how to read the words by following them with her finger. She didn’t enjoy reading at first, but the more she did it, the easier it got and the more she enjoyed it.
Nobody thought the little girl would graduate from high school, but she did! She celebrated with all her friends and family, and her new best friend. His name is Jesus. Jesus helped the little girl with a lot of stuff that she could not have done by herself.
Jesus stayed with the little girl and helped her as she grew into a young woman. He helped her land a really great job as an editor where she had to do a lot of reading. Now the woman writes a blog for fun to encourage others to celebrate every day.
Jesus knew about the woman’s problem with reading, but nobody else did. He will always be the woman’s best friend.
– The End
The Moral of the story is… Jesus can help you overcome ANY obstacle you face!
Jesus cares and helps us with everything because He loves us so very much! He is the great giver. ❤
