“Hypocrisy is hideous. What cancer is to the body, hypocrisy is to the church. It is a killing agent. Unfortunately, hypocrisy is also addictive. And even though Jesus reserved His most severe words of condemnation for the hypocrite, we seem to prefer that lifestyle to truth and authenticity.“ John R Stott
“The difference between a person who tells the truth and tells a lie is that the liar’s gotta have a better memory.“ Mark Twain

D.L. Moody was once preaching to a great crowd. After the service a leader of one of the fashionable churches of the city went to the evangelist and said, “I noticed you made eleven mistakes in grammar tonight.” D.L. Moody replied, “I don’t doubt it, my early education was a bit faulty. I wish I had received more schooling. But I’m using all the grammar I know in service of Christ. How is it with you?” The man had no answer!
Once there was a fellow who was in the habit of rotating from church to church. One day he was talking with his pastor and said that he was going to leave the church and check out a different one. He asked for the pastor’s opinion. The pastor said, “I think it’s all right in your case. You see, it never hurts to change the label on an empty bottle.”
Senior citizens are constantly being criticized for every conceivable deficiency of the modern world, real or imaginary. We know we take responsibility for all we have done and do not blame others.
HOWEVER, upon reflection, we would like to point out that it was NOT the senior citizens who took
The melody out of music,
The pride out of appearance,
The courtesy out of driving,
The romance out of love,
The commitment out of marriage,
The responsibility out of parenthood,
The togetherness out of the family,
The learning out of education,
The service out of patriotism,
The Golden Rule from rulers,
The nativity scene out of cities,
The civility out of behavior,
The refinement out of language,
The dedication out of employment,
The prudence out of spending,
The ambition out of achievement;
And, we certainly are NOT the ones who eliminated patience and tolerance from personal relationships and interactions with others!!
And, we do understand the meaning of patriotism, and remember those who have fought and died for our country.
Just look at the Seniors with tears in their eyes and pride in their hearts as they stand at attention with their hand over their hearts!
YES, I’M A SENIOR CITIZEN!
I’m the life of the party….. Even if it lasts until 8 p.m.
I’m very good at opening childproof caps….. With a hammer.
I’m awake many hours before my body allows me to get up.
I’m smiling all the time because I can’t hear a thing you’re saying.
I’m sure everything I can’t find is in a safe secure place, somewhere.
I’m wrinkled, saggy, lumpy, and that’s just my left leg.
I’m beginning to realize that aging is not for wimps.
Yes, I’m a SENIOR CITIZEN and I think I am having the time of my life!
Now if I could only remember who sent this to me, I wouldn’t send it back to them, but I would send it to many more too!
