A pre-Xmas joke

A doctor, an engineer, and a politician were arguing about what was the oldest profession in the world. 

The doctor started… "Well, in the Bible, it says that God created Eve from a rib taken from Adam’s body. This must have required surgery, and so I can claim with a high degree of confidence that mine is the oldest profession in the world." 

The engineer responded, and said, "But earlier in the book of Genesis, it states that God created the order of the heavens and the earth from out of the chaos. This was the first and certainly the most impressive application of civil engineering. Therefore, dear doctor, you are wrong: mine is surely the oldest profession in the world." 

The politician leaned back in his chair, smiled, and then said confidently, "Ah, but who do you think created the chaos?"

Why don't the refugees go back to where they came from?

Would you go back if this had happened to your home, neighbourhood or your entire city?

Have you registered to vote?

The EU referendum vote takes place on 23 June and tomorrow, 7 June, is the last day for people to register to vote. I cannot think of a more important vote that has taken place in recent time. So if you haven't registered yet it is as easy as anything to do. Here is a link to a site that explains how to do this:

Please pray that the best outcome for the country will be achieved.

The 7-Step Morning Ritual To Make You Happy

I am NOT a morning person. I often wake up wishing I could have more time in bed. While in the shower I stress myself out by thinking about the things that I have to do that day PLUS all the things that I will NOT have time to do. Yah, that's a dreadful way to start one's day.

An interesting article sets out what you can do and how to have that blue sky kind of morning everyday. It's a 7 step process and the summary of this is listed below. I do recommend that you click on this link to the full article. 

Here’s the morning ritual that will make you happy all day:

1. Have something to look forward to: Plans with a friend are always good.

2. Manage your mood: Don’t check email. Do what gives you a feeling of control.

3. Eat breakfast: If you eat nothing and end up killing someone, well… I hope it’s not me.

4. Do something you dread: You’ve got the willpower. And you’ll feel so much better afterwards.

5. Send a “thank you” email: Yes, it’s that simple. Really.

6. Plan how you’ll deal with challenges: Think about the worst that could happen and it probably won’t.

7. Kiss somebody you love: If this makes you late for work, feel free to blame me.

My suggestion - Thank God for the night's sleep that you have had and ask him to bless your day ahead.
