Be on the alert for symptoms of inner Hope, Peace, Joy and Love. The hearts of a great many have already been exposed to this virus and it is possible that people everywhere could come down with it in epidemic proportions. This could pose a serious threat to what has, up to now, been a fairly stable condition of conflict in the world.

Some signs and symptoms of The Christmas Virus:

A tendency to:      think and act spontaneously rather than on fears based on past  experiences

An unmistakable ability to enjoy each moment

A loss of  interest in judging other people.

  • A loss of  interest in interpreting the actions of others.
  • A loss of  interest in conflict.
  • A loss of the ability to worry. (This is a very serious symptom.)
  • Frequent, overwhelming episodes of appreciation.
  • Contented  feelings of connectedness with others and nature.
  • Frequent attacks of smiling.
  • An increasing tendency to let things happen rather than make them happen.
  • An increased  susceptibility to the love extended by others as well as the uncontrollable urge to extend it.

Please send this warning out to all your friends. This virus can and has affected many systems. Some systems have been completely cleaned out because of it. (Author Unknown)

In the great state of Alabama in which I live…I recently came across some laws that really made me chuckle.

Enjoy this “Silly for Sturday”!

Crazy Laws in Alabama:

Bear wrestling matches are illegal.

image via

Elephants must not be placed in electric ovens.

image via

It is against the law to have an ice cream cone in your back pocket.

image via

It is illegal for a driver to be blindfolded while operating a motor vehicle.

image via

It is illegal to flick boogers into the wind.

image via

It is illegal to spit orange peels out on to the sidewalk.

image via

It is illegal to wear a fake  moustache that causes laughter in church.

Stay tuned on news about a bill recently introduced that deals with a pressing problem in Alabama…not crime, taxes, unemployment, or foreclosures. The legislature of Alabama is close to passing a statewide ban on saggy pants!

Remember, “Mirth is God’s medicine. Bathe in it regularly.”

Blessings on your weekend!

Dancing with the feet is one thing…

but dancing with the HEART is another!

(a really fun video I’ve came across on a fellow blogger’s site…I wasn’t able to go back and find out which one…so you who shared this thank you!

What if we all began the day with such “spring in our step”? This video made me want to go skip down the street.

Would you join in the dance?

May it bring a smile into your Saturday.


A Silly for Saturday #2…..

This REALLY tickled me…I may be royalty because I am a child of God…but I don’t think this would go over well with hubby!

Frank A. Clark (1911-1991) is best known for his one panel, one liner sermon, newspaper cartoons entitled “The Country Parson”.  He evangelized thousands of loyal readers with his faith based humor. He once said…

“I think the next best thing to solving a problem is finding some humor in it.”

Oh yes…if I had my way….

It’s said that cupcakes are “God’s apology for muffins”.

Unfortunately, medically, my cupcake days are over…that is unless someone has a really good recipe for gluten free, grain free, sugar free, dairy free cupcakes! (goodbye desserts, pastas, cheeses, homemade breads, grits, gravies, Captain Crunch, and pizza, etc…sigh, sigh, sigh and a tear or two) It’s said when life hands you a lemon, make lemonade…and I agree with Mr. Clark.  Why not find a bit of humor in the tough stuff? I still love cupcakes..a lot…but now I really love baking them for others.  And the wackier and more colorful the better. Cupcakes really DO make people smile…and that is so much sweeter than any double chocolate, swirled icing, marshmallow creme filled cupcake.
