      I do not support same sex marriage.
      It should not be passed in parliament.
      God created man and women to procreate and multiply.

    CHRISTIAN ONE LINERS

    Subject: CHRISTIAN ONE LINERS

    Don’t let your worries get the best of you. Remember, Moses started out as a basket case.

    Some people are kind, polite, and sweet-spirited until you try to sit in their pews.

    Many folks want to serve God, But only as advisers.

    It is easier to preach ten sermons than it is to live one.

    The good Lord didn’t create anything without a purpose, but mosquitoes come close.

    When you get to your wit’s end, you’ll find God lives there.

    People are funny. They want the front of the bus, middle of the road, and back of the church.

    Opportunity may knock once, but temptation bangs on the front door forever.

    Quit griping about your church. If it was perfect, you couldn’t belong.

    If a church wants a better pastor, it only needs to pray for the one it has.

    We’re called to be witnesses, not lawyers or Judges.

    God Himself doesn’t propose to judge a man until he is dead. So why should you?

    Some minds are like concrete. Thoroughly mixed up and permanently set.

    Peace starts with a smile.

    I don’t know why some people change churches. What difference does it make which one you stay home from?

    Be ye fishers of men. You catch ’em – He’ll clean ’em.

    Stop, Drop, and Roll won’t work in Hell.

    Coincidence is when God chooses to remain anonymous.

    Don’t wait for 6 strong men to take you to church.

    Forbidden fruits create many jams

    God doesn’t call the qualified. He qualifies the called.

    God grades on the cross, not the curve.

    God loves everyone, but probably prefers "fruits of the spirit" over "religious nuts"!

    God promises a safe landing, not a calm passage.

    He who angers you, controls you!

    If God is your Co-pilot, swap seats!

    Prayer: Don’t give God instructions, just report for duty!

    The task ahead of us is never as great as the Power behind us.


    The Will of God never takes you to where the Grace of God will not protect you.

    We don’t change the message. The message changes us.

    You can tell how big a person is by what it takes to discourage him/her.

    The best mathematical equation I have ever seen: 1 cross + 3 nails = 4 given.

    If this blessed you in a profound way today, share it with a few friends to bless them!

    I bet someone else will LOVE it too.

    There is no greater treasure than a good friend!

    Sydney Opera House as you have never seen it before! 

    Friends,

    Even those of you who have not been to Sydney have seen pictures of the iconic Sydney Opera House. But unless you have been to Sydney during Vivid (this year from 22 May to 8 June) you will not have seen this building like you will in this video,

    We encourage you to grab a cuppa or a glass of your favourite and give yourself 15 minutes to experience an amazing video. This year entitled "Lighting the Sails 2015: Living Mural"

    https://youtu.be/hl-gZVOCo8M

    Trust us when we say this is not online special effects graphics. This is an amazing light show that is videoed from the Sydney International Passenger Terminal wharf side of Circular Quay (pronounced "key") looking at the western face of the Sydney Opera House sails. The amazing moving light show comes from some temporary projection equipment set up on the same side of the Quay as the Passenger Terminal and effectively uses the sails of the Opera House as a projection screen.

    Technology is amazing,

    If you want to know more about Vivid Sydney, check out
    http://www.vividsydney.com/

    Please enjoy this amazing display on what we have come to call "Our House" since it’s where we were married (in the northern foyer of the Concert Hall overlooking the sunlit Sydney Harbour 27 years ago.

    Warmest regards,
    Larry & Colleen

      Published on 8 Jun 2015

    Before You Put Your Camel to Bed…

    :I needed the laugh. BA

    Before You put your Camel to Bed ..

    McDonald, NHL Hall of Fame broadcaster speaking in Ontario, says:

    "I am truly perplexed that so many of my friends are against another mosque being built in Toronto. I think it should be the goal of every Canadian to be tolerant regardless of their religious beliefs. Thus the mosque should be allowed, in an effort to promote tolerance."

    "That is why I also propose that two nightclubs be opened next door to the mosque; thereby promoting tolerance from within the mosque. We could call one of the clubs, which would be gay, "The Turban Cowboy," and the other, a topless bar, would be called "You Mecca Me Hot."

    "Next door should be a butcher shop that specializes in pork, and adjacent to that an open-pit barbecue pork restaurant, called “Iraq of Ribs."

    “Across the street there could be a lingerie store called "Victoria Keeps Nothing Secret," with sexy mannequins in the window modeling the goods", and on the other side a liquor store called "Morehammered."

    "All of this would encourage Muslims to demonstrate the tolerance they demand of us.”

    Yes we should promote tolerance, and you can do your part by passing this on. And if you are not laughing or smiling at this point… It is either past your bedtime, or its midnight at the oasis and time to put your camel to bed.

    A Little Irish Humor 

    Forwarded message
    From: Ralph & BA
    Date: 15 May 2015 at 00:16
    Subject: Fw: Fwd: A Little Irish Humor

    An Irish painter by the name of Murphy, while not a brilliant scholar, was a gifted portrait artist. Over a short number of years, his fame grew and soon people from all over Ireland were coming to the town of Doolin in County Clare, to get him to paint their likenesses.

    One day, a beautiful young English woman arrived at his house in a stretch limo and asked if he would paint her in the nude.

    This being the first time anyone had made such a request he was a bit perturbed, particularly when the woman told him that money was no object. In fact, she was willing to pay up to £10,000.

    Not wanting to get into any marital strife, he asked her to wait while he went into the house to confer with Mary, his wife.

    In a few minutes he returned…

    "T’would be me pleasure to paint yer portrait, missus," he said "The wife says it’s okay. I’ll paint you in the nude all right; but I have to at least leave me socks on, so I have a place to wipe me brushes."

    Home schooled? 

    Forwarded message
    From: Ralph & BA
    Date: 12 May 2015 at 12:37
    Subject: Fw: Fwd: Home schooled?

    ARE WE THE ONES WITH DEMENTIA?

    ONE
    Recently, I went to McDonald’s and I saw on the menu that you could have an order of 6, 9 or 12 Chicken McNuggets.
    I asked for a half dozen nuggets.
    ‘We don’t have half dozen nuggets,’ said the teenager at the counter.
    ‘You don’t?’ I replied.
    ‘We only have six, nine, or twelve,’ was the reply.
    ‘So I can’t order a half dozen nuggets, but I can order six?’
    ‘That’s right.’
    So I shook my head and ordered six McNuggets

    (Unbelievable but sadly true…)
    (Must have been the same one I asked for sweetener and she said they didn’t have any,
    only Splenda and sugar.) (And they think they are worth $15.00 per hour)

    TWO
    I was checking out at the local Wal-Mart with just a few items and the lady behind me put her things on the belt close to mine.
    I picked up one of those dividers that they keep by the cash register and placed it between our things so they wouldn’t get mixed.

    After the girl had scanned all of my items, she picked up the divider, looking it all over for the bar code so she could scan it.
    Not finding the bar code, she said to me, ‘Do you know how much this is?’
    I said to her ‘I’ve changed my mind; I don’t think I’ll buy that today.’
    She said ‘OK,’ and I paid her for the things and left.
    She had no clue to what had just happened.
    (But the lady behind me had a big smirk on her face as I left)

    THREE
    A woman at work was seen putting a credit card into her DVD drive and pulling it out very quickly.
    When I inquired as to what she was doing, she said she was shopping on the Internet and they
    kept asking for a credit card number, so she was using the ATM thingy.

    (Keep shuddering!!)

    FOUR
    I recently saw a distraught young lady weeping beside her car.
    ‘Do you need some help?’ I asked.
    She replied, ‘I knew I should have replaced the battery to this remote door un-locker.
    Now I can’t get into my car.

    Do you think they (pointing to a distant convenience store) would have a battery to fit this?’
    Hmm, I don’t know. Do you have an alarm, too?’ I asked.
    ‘No, just this remote thingy,’ she answered, handing it and the car keys to me.
    As I took the key and manually unlocked the door, I replied, ‘Why don’t you drive over there
    and check about the batteries.

    It’s a long walk….’

    PLEASE just lay down before you hurt yourself !!!

    FIVE
    Several years ago, we had an Intern who was none too swift.
    One day she was typing and turned to a secretary and said, ‘I’m almost out of typing paper.
    What do I do?’
    ‘Just use paper from the photocopier’, the secretary told her.
    With that, the intern took her last remaining blank piece of paper, put it on the photocopier
    and proceeded to make five blank copies.

    Brunette, by the way!!

    SIX
    A mother calls 911 very worried asking the dispatcher if she needs to take her kid to the
    emergency room, the kid had eaten ants.
    The dispatcher tells her to give the kid some Benadryl and he should be fine, the mother says,
    ‘I just gave him some ant killer……’
    Dispatcher: ‘Rush him in to emergency right now!’

    Life is tough. It’s even tougher if you’re stupid!!!!
    Someone had to remind me, so I’m reminding you too.
    Don’t laugh….it is all true…
