Silly Sunday

Sunday is the place to come for weekly laughs. The rules are simple, just have fun.

This is a great opportunity to get to know other bloggers and have a laugh or two in the process. Here is how it works: Laugh and Link Up!

Don’t:

Whenever your kids are out of control, you can take comfort from the thought that even God’s omnipotence did not extend to God’s kids. After creating heaven and earth, God created Adam and Eve. And the first thing He said to them was: “Don’t.”

“Don’t what?” Adam replied.

“Don’t eat the forbidden fruit.” God said.

“Forbidden fruit? We got forbidden fruit? Hey, Eve…we got Forbidden Fruit!”

“No way!”

“Yes WAY!”

“Don’t eat that fruit!” said God.

“Why?”

“Because I’m your Father and I said so!” said God, wondering why he hadn’t stopped after making the elephants. A few minutes later God saw the kids having an apple break and was angry.

“Didn’t I tell you not to eat that fruit?” the First Parent asked.

“Uh huh,” Adam replied.

“Then why did you?”

“I dunno,” Eve answered.

“She started it!” Adam said.

“Did Not!”

“DID so!”

“DID NOT!!”

Having had it with the two of them, God’s punishment was that Adam and Eve should have children of their own. Thus the pattern was set and it has never changed. But there is a reassurance in this story. If you have persistently and lovingly tried to give them wisdom and they haven’t taken it, don’t be hard on yourself. If God had trouble handling children, what makes you think it would be a piece of cake for you?

    Thank you, Sandee for this post. It is so comforting to me because I felt like I should have done more to be a better mom to my kids. God gives us free will….Have a blessed Sunday!

    We had 4 little ones running around here yesterday and I heard the word don't quite a lot. Funny thing is I don't think any of the kids heard it. πŸ™‚

    • August 28, 2016 at 10:35 am

      They hear the word I think, they just don't heed that word. πŸ™‚

  3. August 28, 2016 at 3:24 am

    That 'don't' word does get ignored, no doubt about it. Sandee, you and Zane have fantastic day.

    • August 28, 2016 at 10:35 am

      Ignored is exactly what that work gets. πŸ™‚

  4. August 28, 2016 at 4:30 am

    Yep, the word "don't" goes in one ear and out the other. Have a blessed and beautiful Sunday!

    • August 28, 2016 at 10:36 am

      Yes, I agree. Kids have been ignoring that word for eons. πŸ™‚

    What you sow you reap. Everyone of us had been a kid sometime, troubling our parents and the saga continues…children always keep the parents guessing.
    Have a great day!

    • August 28, 2016 at 10:37 am

      Children are children. They have always been so. πŸ™‚

      Perhaps Tim. I'm not sure, but I loved your alien post today. πŸ™‚

    You're right, we can't do a better job than God at parenting.

    Funny how a few short lines can send such a message. I've always thought that some to try and complicate what is most obvious!

    • August 28, 2016 at 10:40 am

      Yes, and this is so very simple isn't it. πŸ™‚

    • August 28, 2016 at 11:46 am

      It sure is Linda, it sure is. πŸ™‚

  19. August 28, 2016 at 4:39 pm

      Amen is right. Okay the lol is a must too. πŸ™‚

    Laughing…this is hilarious, and this is my favorite part, "wondering why he hadn't stopped after making the elephants."

    As always, thanks for the endorphin's. :))

    Have a great week, Sandee.

    "Big hugs" to you my dear friend. Happy Silly Sunday!

    • August 29, 2016 at 7:21 am

      I'm glad you joined in this week Annie. I'm always so happy when you do. πŸ™‚

  21. August 29, 2016 at 3:20 pm

    That's a pretty good way to look at it!

    • August 29, 2016 at 3:27 pm

      Yep, all these years and things are the same πŸ™‚

  22. August 30, 2016 at 1:29 am

    so, that's where it all started lol!!

    • August 30, 2016 at 7:31 am

      Yes, this is where it all started. πŸ™‚

  23. August 30, 2016 at 1:48 pm

    Interesting analogy. And so spot on. "I dunno" drives me mad some days.

    • August 31, 2016 at 10:32 am

      Drives us all mad sometimes. I so remember. πŸ™‚

  24. August 30, 2016 at 8:34 pm

    My niece stays with us on weekend so even if I don't have kids I know how hard it is to raise kids πŸ™‚

    Sorry for not visiting for a while. Hope all is well with you!

    • August 31, 2016 at 10:33 am

      I've missed you too, but I know how busy you are. Yes, kids need lots of attention. πŸ™‚

  25. September 1, 2016 at 12:35 am

    Adam & Eve have a lot to answer for. This was really funny Sandee

    • September 1, 2016 at 7:37 am

      And having God as their parent didn't help one bit did it. I thought it was funny too Tony. πŸ™‚
