Top 10 things to say about a Christmas gift you don’t like:
10) Hey! There’s a gift.
9.) Well, well, well…
8.) Boy, if I had not recently shot up 4 sizes, that would’ve fit.
7.) Perfect for wearing in the basement.
6.) Wow, I hope this never catches fire!
5.) If the dog buries it, I’ll be furious!
4.) I Love it, but I fear the jealousy it will inspire.
3.) Sadly, tomorrow I enter the federal witness protection program.
2.) To think I got this the year I vowed to give all my gifts to charity.
1.) I really don’t deserve this
On the 90th day of Christmas, my true love said to me: “You take Christmas too seriously.”
Thought for the day
“Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me; for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light” Matthew 11:28-30 RSV
I don’t know what burden you’re carrying. I don’t know what’s weighing you down. But I do know the answer.
