Day of Praise

Wed, 01/31/18, "Day of Praise" 

Acts 14:22 - "...strengthening the souls of the disciples, encouraging them to continue in the faith, and saying that through many tribulations we must enter the kingdom of God." 

So how long does it take to empty a full 2-liter soda bottle?

One time I learned how long it takes to empty a full 2-liter soda bottle. 

If you grab a full one on your way out the door to church, get in your car, unscrew the 2-liter cap, put the full 2-liter between your legs, stop short at a red light, and send the 2-liter rocketing toward your feet, then, by my count, it takes about three seconds to empty a 2-liter soda into your shoe and onto your car floor. And for no extra charge you get a nice bang on your forehead against the steering wheel as you try to get to the 2-liter at your feet before three seconds are up and the foaming thing is empty, not to mention the joy I brought to the rather large man in the pick-up truck who both apparently watched the whole thing from his passenger-side perch and who also looked dressed to go hunt for Bigfoot, Bambi or some other Disney critter on an early Sunday morning. 

So what's my point? 

I guess I'm not exactly sure. Maybe from today's Bible verse it's an encouragement "to continue in the faith" in spite of self-inflicted or other "tribulations" that come along in life. 

Or maybe I just thought you could use a laugh on a Wednesday. :-) 

Have a great day, y'all! 

Praise God!
