Darlene's Daily


People are so worried about what they eat between Christmas and the New Year, but they really should be worried about what they eat between the New Year and Christmas. ~Author Unknown


Late one night I stopped at one of those 24-hour gas station mini-marts to get myself a fresh-brewed cup of coffee. When I picked up the pot, I could not help noticing that the brew was as black as asphalt and just about as thick.  "How old is the coffee you have here?" I asked the woman who was standing behind the store counter.

She shrugged. "I don't know.  I've only been working here two weeks."

Make a place in your heart for joy.


One semester when my brother, Peter, attended the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis, an art-student friend of his asked if he could paint Peter's portrait for a class assignment. Peter agreed, and the art student painted and submitted the portrait, only to receive a C minus. The art student approached the professor to ask why the grade was so poor. The teacher told him that the proportions in the painting were incorrect.

"The head is too big," the professor explained. "The shoulders are too wide, and the feet are enormous."
The next day, the art student brought Peter to see the professor.  He took one look at my brother and said, "Okay, A minus."


Straighten your problems out before you go to bed--That way you will wake up smiling.


An Italian fellow took his mother fishing on a party boat . After drifting for hours without even a nibble, his mother hooks into one. Everyone on the boat was excited, cheering the old woman on and telling her to take her time.
Finally she lifted it into the boat, picked up the fish, removed the hook, looked at it up and down, and then tossed it back into the water.  Stunned, her son says, "Mama why did you throw that fish back into the water?"

She replied, "I don't know, to me it just didn't look fresh."


Thanks Darlene.....good one!
Happy New Year!
God loves you,
