Silly Sunday

silly-sunday-badge-250-transparent-150x150Silly 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!


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.


“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!”


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. 🙂

    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!

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

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

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