Thanks Living Day 35

TL THANKSGIVING

SIFT
Today I am thankful for God’s Holy Spirit.  He helps me choose wise words and checks me when I make questionable choices along life’s way.

What happens when flour gets sifted?  Why do we do that?  It makes it lighter and fluffy.  When our thoughts and motives are sifted through the Holy Spirit sifter, it’s the same outcome.  We become lighter and less burdened!

God’s Holy Spirit is essential for sifting in my life – it’s what makes what I do and say much better than it would be otherwise!

Today the old hymn BE THOU MY VISION is running through my mind.  If you have a hymnal handy or want to look it up online, take a moment to read the words slowly and deliberately.  Take some time today to thank God for His wonderful helper, comforter, guide – His Holy Spirit!  ❤

GOLFER’S DAY

TL 4-10 GOLFER'S DAY

Today is GOLFER’S DAY!

When I die, bury me on the golf course so my husband will come visit!!!

My husband plays “real” golf, but one day I went out to hit a bucket of balls with him and he never invited me out with him again for golf. Huh – I think that waiter was ok after I sliced that shot. I mean, he didn’t suffer a concussion or anything. I hope my hubby wasn’t embarrassed by that little situation.

Golf is a game in which you yell “fore,” shoot six, and write down five.”
– Paul Harvey

Although I lack talent and anything else it may take to be a great golfer, I can clean your plow at mini-golf!  No matter what the intended trap may be, I manage to avoid it.  If there is a wheel turning and I have to get the little neon colored golf ball to the other side of it – hey – I’m your girl!

You can’t call it a sport. You don’t run, jump, you don’t shoot, you don’t pass. All you have to do is buy some clothes that don’t match.  – Steve Sax

Try opting for fun first and just reap the added benefit of exercise.  The attitude you have toward being active every day has more to do with overall wellness than the activity itself.  Find someone to beat at mini-golf, then go play mini-golf!

If I’m on the course and lightning starts, I get inside fast. If God wants to play through, let him.  – Bob Hope

 

Paying Last Respects

A golfer and his buddies where playing a big round of golf for $200. At the eighteenth green the golfer had a ten foot putt to win the round, and the $200. As he was lining up his putt, a funeral procession started to pass by. The golfer set down his putter, took his hat off, placed it over his chest, and began to wait for the funeral procession to pass. After it passed, he picked up his putter and returned to lining up his putt. One of his buddies said, “That was the most touching thing I have ever seen. I can’t believe you stopped playing, possibly losing your concentration, to pay your respects.” The man replied, “Well, we were married for 25 years!”

You know, I don’t mind not getting to keep score, but I sure do wish I’d quit picking out the one ball that knows how to do a disappearing act on the last hole before I get the chance to knock it in!  **Sigh**…

The average golfer doesn’t play golf. He attacks it.  – Jack Burke

  Whether you play or attack – have fun!   🙂
