Life is too serious. Sunday, the Children's Sermon was about joy and hope. I was planning to talk about those words today, but frankly, I get a little confused. I'm okay with hope, but joy has me worried because it's supposed be about "feelings of great pleasure and happiness." I'm good with lots of joy too except when I have joy because Washburn loses at anything or Don Hill misses an easy putt. I'm pretty sure that's not what joy is supposed to be, so I'm not discussing hope and joy any further.

            So today I'm taking a safer tact with several stories straight from Facebook.

      Wife texts husband on a cold morning: Windows frozen, won't open.

            Husband texts back: Gently pour some lukewarm water over it and then gently tap edges with a hammer.

            Ten minutes later the wife responds: Computer really messed up now!


      Picture of President Trump Monday holding a sign which says:

      Chiefs are going to win the Super Bowl and the Raiders are going to pay for the parade!


      People are really excited about using their new IPhones!

But, no one has caught up with the awesome technology of using their blinker when they drive!


      Am I getting older or is the supermarket finally playing great music?


      And last a helpful hint about Exercise for People Over 60!

      Begin standing on a flat surface with plenty of room.

      With a 5-lb potato bag in each hand, extend your arms straight from your sides and hold them there as long as you can. Try to reach a minute then relax.

      Each day you'll find that you can hold this position a little bit longer.

      After a couple of weeks move up to 10-lb bags. Depending on your age and condition you might even reach 25-lb potato bags! That's where I am now.

      Once you feel confident you've reached your maximum level try putting a potato in each bag!

      Okay, I apologize admitting those jokes were not joyful, but given the world we live in if we don't laugh once in a while we may cry and that's not what anyone hopes for.

            I'm Steve Sauder!
