Enjoy a Laugh.

I enjoy a good laugh.

There are times when life is so serious and in my opinion having a laugh helps oil the wheels making the day a little more enjoyable.  It is a little like a very short, mini, vacation. So here are a couple of stories I read that I enjoyed. I hope you also enjoy them.

Unwelcome Attention

Getting away from their high-stress jobs, a couple spent weekends relaxing in their motor home.

When they found their peace and quiet disturbed by well-meaning but unwelcome visits from other campers, they devised a plan to assure themselves some privacy.

Now, when they set up camp, they place this sign on the door of their motor home:

“Insurance agents. Ask about our term-life package.”

A Scotsman on Holiday
A Scotsman visited London for his annual holiday and stayed at a large hotel. However, he didn’t feel that the locals were friendly.

At 5 o’clock every morning,” he told a friend, “they hammered on my bedroom door, one the walls, even on the floor and ceiling.

Heck, sometimes they hammered so loud I could hardly hear myself playing the bagpipes.”

And finally Bears

A couple were vacationing in a national park. The wife expressed her concern about camping because of bears and said she would feel more comfortable in a motel. The husband said that he’d like to camp and to calm her concerns, they’d talk to the park ranger to see what the likelihood of a bear encounter would be.

The ranger told them, “Well, we haven’t seen any grizzlies in this area so far this year, or black bears, for that matter.”

The wife shrieked, “There’s TWO types of bears out here? How can you tell the difference? Which one is more dangerous?”

The ranger replied, “Well, that’s easy, see, if the bear CHASES you up a tree and it comes up after you, it’s a black bear. If it SHAKES the tree until you fall out, it’s a grizzly.”

The motel room was quite nice.

I hope that these have cheered up your day a little and will help you to keep going until you can enjoy a real holiday.

When that time arrives please remember that Christian House Sitters are here to help you.

We can help by getting someone suitable to look after your home and pets while you are away. This is a free service.

We can also help by registering you as a House Sitter so you can enjoy a rent-free holiday.

About housesitters

ABOUT Christian House Sitters Christian House Sitters is a Worldwide ministry that started in order to provide holidays for Christians and sitters for owners who needed a reliable Christian to look after their home, pets and garden. House owners do not pay anything to have their property listed. House sitters are only charged £25 per year and in return for this some enjoy numerous holidays each year. All fees from membership go to sponsor food for children at the Home of Peace Children’s Home in Kenya. This only supplies about a quarter of what is needed to feed the children so we urgently need sponsors. All funds go via our Registered Charity TLC Children’s Trust Charity Number 1156786 website http://www.tlc-childrenstrust.org N.B. Joining Christian House Sitters does NOT commit you to sponsoring a child or giving any support beyond your membership fee to these children. Although naturally if you want to support that would be greatly appreciated. We have some regular sponsors and other people who give an occasional gift. All are greatly appreciated. ABOUT RAY & MARILYN We are Marilyn & Ray White. A fun loving Christian couple who have been in Christian work for over 30 years. Marilyn was born in England but moved to Zimbabwe as a baby.

Ray also has an active preaching ministry and runs Christian seminars on subjects such as stress management for church groups. He has written two books. A Christian book that is a very practical workbook on Christian commitment as applied to real life. The book looks at how we can surrender ourselves more fully to God. This is looked at under the headings of Physical, Mental, Social and Spiritual commitment. The book is called Let’s Get Serious. He has also written a secular book on Stress Management called Stress Overcoming this Potential Killer. (Ray was previously Chair of the International Stress Management Association UK). News Update This book has now been released as an e-book as well A few years ago we did a 2 month House Sit in France. Whilst there we felt the Lord leading us to set up a Christian House Sitting service. Since then we have done a number of other house sits. We believe this site will benefit many Christians around the world.
