Just a Joke.

I was walking across a bridge one day, and I saw a man standing on the edge, about to jump off.
So I ran over and said, "Stop! Don't do it!"

"Why shouldn't I?"he said.

I said, "Well, there's so much to live for!"

He said, "Like what?"

I said, "Well, are you religious or atheist?"

He said, "Religious."

I said, "Me too! Are you Christian or Buddhist?"

He said, "Christian."

I said, "Me too! Are you Catholic or Protestant?"

He said, "Protestant."

I said, Me too! Are you Episcopalian or Baptist?

He said, "Baptist!"

I said, "Wow! Me too! Are you Baptist Church of God or Baptist Church of the Lord?"

He said, "Baptist Church of God!"

I said, "Me too! Are you Original Baptist Church of God or are you Reformed Baptist Church of God?"

He said, "Reformed Baptist Church of God!"

I said, "Me too! Are you Reformed Baptist Church of God, Reformation of 1879, or Reformed Baptist Church of God, Reformation of 1915?"

He said, "Reformed Baptist Church of God, Reformation of 1915!"

I said, "Die, heretic scum!" and pushed him off.


  1. That is hysterical.
    I would have been pushed off the bridge after the first question "Are you Religious or Atheist?".

  2. OMGosh, haha! I've never seen Catholics as Christians though. The history is from a whole different area way far from Christianity! LOL. It was hilarious though. I do think there are just so many avenues of religions. Whatever doesn't line up with the bible makes it easy to decide. :D

  3. LOL! I would have been thrown off quite a bit sooner as well!

    Um... I would like to know what Catholics are supposed to be if they are not Christians! Maybe we should pull out the history books.

  4. I dunno, Chris. I think he'd have been morally obligated to give you a good sermon about hellfire and stuff right then... which might send you over the edge anyway LOL...

    Virginia, sometimes I feel the same way about the Catholic Church organization, particularly the high-ups and in light of the centuries of cover-ups, worship of saints, ex cathedra beliefs, etc.

    Then I think of some of the crap the Protestant churches get up to and I'm thinking God will have some interesting things to say to all of us on Judgment Day. :)

    Sue, I'm thinking I'd have been creeped out by the guy asking me if I were religious in the first place. Is he trying to score points/ make a convert, or is he just reallly weird? I know people like that though... they'll SAY it's only Jesus this or that but then they'll go on and on about "church history," and they're only talking about OUR denomination which is um, about a hundred years old. Guess everybody but your speaking-in-tongues Gramma was unsaved back in the day, I wanna tell them...

    But I am polite. I try to be good. I really try. :)

  5. [laughing] That's funny. In a terrible kind of way [smile].


  6. LOL obviously a cut and paste job on my part. A facebook friend was talking about "You know you're a Baptist when..." and this popped up in the comments, so I thought I'd share. :)

Reading Curriculum: ABeka Book and BJU Press

Did you know that in the state of Missouri, homeschoolers must teach reading as a separate subject?  I don't know how anyone could homeschool well without teaching their child to read... but OK. 

I got many of my ABeka books used and collected them over time.  I'm glad I came across these readers early in my homeschooling years.  It teaches children to read step-by-step.  I don't think I've seen a more effective reading program for the elementary years.  The children love the stories, and what I appreciate about them is that there is a rich and varied language even in simple-to-read books in this series. 

My set is pretty old, and some are even from the 1960's and no longer listed in the reading series.  I think if I had to do things over again somehow, I think I'd just spend on a curriculum set and be done with it.  That's the thing, though, with homeschooling.  By the time you figure out what the perfect curriculum is for you, your children have graduate…

Homeschooling is NOT So Hard.

I wish I'd have known this starting out. I wish I'd have known that it's actually LESS work to just homeschool your child, than to be an "involved parent" at school.

We've enjoyed elementary school with our older boys. *Most* of the teachers were actually pretty competent and caring (the others, I save for another blog post, another day...). We had the children involved in extra activities like the Spanish Club or Service Club, or choir, and they got a fair bit out of the experience.

But it's a LOT of work.

You get about a ton of worksheets that must be done by a certain time. Usually on a day when you're sick or have no time. You get the phone calls about this or that, and about a zillion sheets per day that sometimes contain important news, so you MUST go through them daily. The schools also *love* to throw in half days, teacher in-service days and early dismissals. Not so bad, unless you have children at more than one school and the schedu…

Holiday Gifts for the Homeschool Teacher!

Merrymaking hint:  leave this post up on your phone/ computer for your family to "accidentally" find!  Let the magic begin!

 All teachers love a little appreciation every now and then, including homeschoolers.   I don't know about you, though, but I don't want any apple crap.  So first rule:  no apple crap! 

Otherwise I'm pretty open.  I love getting gifts, even if it's just something small or simple.  One thing I love is when my children want to help out and make lunch or clean up or put their laundry away.  Or just behave themselves and get their math done.  This is a really big thing when you think about it.  

And from the adults in my life, the gift of coffee always shows love - or rather, someone not wanting an "I need coffee" emergency in the middle of winter after a big snowstorm.  Somehow, I always have a lot of coffee in my pantry during the winter months.  (Guess why.) Thanks, D!
