There was this Christian lady ......

Tuesday, May 04, 2010

Happy Tuesday! DH went yesterday to the pantry and they were closed. We have a list of them so he went to another one town over and they told him we weren't in there district. They gave him food anyway. We just can't go back there again. We have some chicken legs, ham and deer meat. ICK!
emoticonToday he is going to the produce pantry for hopefully veggies and fruit.

Here is my dilema my husband comes back and says he got chicken, ham and hamberger. Now when Linda my nurse gets here she was making my lunch and tells me she didn't see hamberger but deer meat. Now she tells me this and I have to think my DH is trying to get me to eat the stuff. Mind you I am NOT a picky eater. I didn't get to this weight not eatting food. Ha!

But, I am a little concerned about his "trickery". So Linda tells me he is going to know I said something. (hence I can't get to the refrigerator) She doesn't want my DH mad at her. So I have to be observant to see if I can get him to show me the package. Which is kind of strange cause last time we got the deer meat he didn't want to eat it and gave it to the dogs as an awesome treat. Wish me luck.

Here are some good chuckles for today! Enjoy and I hope they make you smile!






~*~ Christian Lady ~*~

There was this Christian lady that had to do a lot of traveling for
her business, so she did a lot of flying. Flying made her nervous so
she always took her Bible along with her to read and it helped relax her.


One time she was sitting next to a man on the plane. When he saw
her pull out her Bible he gave a little chuckle and went back to what he was
doing.


After a while he turned to her and asked, "You don't really believe all
that stuff in there do you?"


The lady replied, "Of course I do. It is the Bible."


He said, "Well what about that guy that was swallowed by that whale?


She replied, "Oh, Jonah. Yes, I believe that; it is in the Bible."


He asked, "Well, how do you suppose he survived all that time inside
the whale?"


The lady said, "Well I don't really know. I guess when I get to
heaven I will ask him."


"What if he isn't in heaven?" the man asked sarcastically.


"Then you can ask him, " replied the lady.








A Preacher's Dying Wish


An old preacher was dying. He sent a message for his doctor and his lawyer, both church members, to come to his home.


When they arrived, they were ushered up to his bedroom. As they entered the room the preacher held out his hands and motioned for them to sit, one on each side of his bed. The preacher grasped their hands, sighed contentedly, smiled and stared at the ceiling. For a time, no one said anything.


Both the doctor and the lawyer were touched and flattered that the preacher would ask them to be with him during his final moments. They were also puzzled; the preacher had never given them any indication that he particularly liked either of them. They both remembered his many long, uncomfortable sermons about greed, covetousness and avaricious behavior that made them squirm in their seats.


Finally, the doctor said, "Preacher, why did you ask us to come?" The old preacher mustered up his strength, then said weakly, "Jesus died between two thieves ... and that's how I want to go."

    Thanks for explaining to me. Now I truly understand. There are foods I also cannot eat because at some point in time I was sickened on them. Dh cannot even look at spaghettios because of childhood experiences. Bet we all have some foods like that! Have a good day, friend!

    You can use the deer meat to make chili. It's not so bad if you disguise it.
    Loved the preacher joke! emoticon

    Growing up, my mother used to use deer meat when making meatballs. The kids knew it and would never eat them, lol.

    Loved the stories! A great chuckle, both!
    As for the other....my gf and my DH conspired to trick me into eating venison one time and I really did think it tasted like beef, sort of. I ate it. Felt awful when I found out what it really was, but not physically. I felt betrayed instead of being allowed to just not eat the stuff.. Anyway, it's not bad tasting. What I had was cut as a roast and we ate it as such. I think it would have been better ground and used in chili or stew as others have suggested. Anyway, give thanks for what you got and disguise it if you like. Just a suggestion.
    Have a blessed day!

    I love Deer meat. My brother is a hunter and he always share a bit with us. I like to make chilli, stew, or roast with it.
    I know it is hard for some to eat wild meat. Hope you are able to find some way to use the deer meat for yourselves.
    SSo glad to hear the food bank did give your DH the Meat yesterday. Hope the produce is plentiful today. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Our family loves deermeat. When the kids were younger, my SD refused to eat it if she knew it was deermeat --because it was Bambi! I have to confess, I did trick her one time, made deer stew told her it was stew beef (cow kind) ---she eat it up --imagine her shock when I asked how she liked the deer meat. Now she loves it1

    Love your humor --thanks for sharing joy with us! Have a blessed day.

    I don't know why your DH would try to trick you to eat venison when he brought it home before, and it was him that wouldn't eat it!!! But he must have had his reasons.

    Regardless, I love your sense of humor! I went to your SparkPage to read a little bit more about you. You have a great attitude and I wish you luck with catching hubbie in his little white lie without getting your nurse in trouble!

    The jokes were funny. I particularly liked the one about "Jesus dying between two thieves, and that's how I want to go." emoticon

    Dear Friend, Your stories are soooo funny! What a big smile that brought! As for venison, if we are voting, I love it! Grew up on venison and fish--still love them both. As suggested above, I think you might enjoy it in soups with your veggies. If closer, I would trade you hamburger for venison and then we could both smile. emoticon emoticon

    Deer meat is marvelous, and nutrious, and lean and healthy, I always have made it just like humburgar. You are blessed to have such a good meat. those dogs are really blessed to have you feeding them. I should be your dog when you are handing out the deer meat. lol. God is good all the time. I have enjoyed your jokes very much thank so much for having a great sense of humor, have a sweet and mourishing and prosperous day. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Have you tried the deer meat, or do you have the "Bambi" syndrome? We really like venison and use it in place of hamburger. There is hardly any fat in it and it does particularly good in soups and stews with tomatoes in it, too. Good luck!
