SUNDAY SERMON..SUNDAY SERMON..SUNDAY SERMON
THE WISDOM OF CHILDREN
Three engineers and three accountants were traveling by train to a conference. At the station, the three accountants each bought tickets and watched as the three engineers bought only one ticket. "How are three people going to travel on only one ticket?" asked an accountant."Watch and you'll see", answered an engineer.
They all boarded the train. The accountants took their respective seats, but the three engineers all crammed into a rest room and closed the door behind them. Shortly after the train departed, the conductor came around collecting tickets. He knocked on the restroom door and said, "Ticket, please". The door opened just a crack and a single arm emerged with a ticket in hand. The conductor took it and moved on. The accountants saw this and agreed it was a quite clever idea.
So, after the conference, the accountants decide to copy the engineers on the return trip and save some money (being clever with money, and all that). When they got to the station, they bought a single ticket for the return trip. To their astonishment, the engineers didn't buy a ticket at all. "How are you going to ride without a ticket"? said one perplexed accountant."Watch and you'll see", answered an engineer. When they boarded the train, the three accountants crammed into a restroom and the three engineers crammed into another one nearby. The train departed. Shortly afterward, one of the engineers left his restroom and walked over to the restroom where the accountants were hiding.
He knocked on the door and said, "Ticket, please".

My travel plans:
I have been in many places, but I've never been in Cahoots.
Apparently, you can't go alone. You have to be in Cahoots with someone.
I've also never been in Cognito. I hear no one recognizes you there.
I have, however, been in Sane. They don't have an airport; you have to be driven there. I have made several trips there, thanks to my children, friends, family and work.
I would like to go to Conclusions, but you have to jump, and I'm not too much on physical activity anymore.
I have also been in Doubt. That is a sad place to go, and I try not to visit there too often.
I've been in Flexible, but only when it was very important to stand firm.
Sometimes I'm in Capable, and I go there more often as I'm getting older.
One of my favorite places to be is in Suspense! It really gets the adrenalin flowing and pumps up the old heart! At my age I need all the stimuli I can get!
I may have been in Continent, and I don't remember what country I was in. It's an age thing. They tell me it is very wet and damp there.
PLEASE DO YOUR PART!
Life is too short for negative drama and petty things.
So laugh insanely, love truly and forgive quickly! Well that forgiveness part is up to you!!!
I hope everyone is happy in your head - we're all doing pretty well in mine!
AND HAVE A GREAT DAY
CAME IN AN EMAIL LOL…
A big, burly man visited the pastor's home and asked to see the minister's wife, a woman well known for her charitable impulses.
"Madam," he said in a broken voice, "I wish to draw your attention to the terrible plight of a poor family in this district.
The father is dead, the mother is too ill to work, and the nine children are starving.
They are about to be turned into the cold, empty streets unless someone pays their rent, which amounts to $400." "How terrible!" exclaimed the preacher's wife.
"May I ask who you are?" The sympathetic visitor applied his handkerchief to his eyes.
"I'm the landlord," he sobbed...!!!
While traveling the back roads of Indiana Linda and I came upon one of those, out-of-the-way destinations Taltree Arboretum. (Actually, we had a little help from Linda’s brother John)
The G (Garden)-scale railway garden opened in June of 2011.
This is really an impressive display 850 tons of limestone was imported from Missouri and used in the construction of the railway garden.
Miniature shrubs,trees,and vegetation came from the state of Oregon. (more than 3000 plants)
At the railway garden you will see prairies, canyons, mountains,waterfalls, cities, and a civil war encampment.
Everyone loves a circus.
I would suggest you bring a pair of binoculars if you really want to take the time to study each display.

Two drunks were walking upgrade between the railroad tracks.
One of them said, "This is is longest stairway I have ever been on."
To this, the other replied, "It's not the stairs that bother me, it's the low banister."
Ghost on the Tracks.. “The train rumbled around him as he adjusted the throttle. The night shift was always the toughest, in the engineer's mind. He had rumbled through Timpas a few minutes ago and was on his way to Thatcher. Not a bad stretch of road, and there was no better train in the entire Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railroad.” Read More
John Henry: The Steel Driving Man.. Now John Henry was a mighty man, yes sir. He was born a slave in the 1840's but was freed after the war. He went to work as a steel-driver for the Chesapeake & Ohio Railroad, don't ya know. And John Henry was the strongest, the most powerful man working the rails. Read More
