Spiritual Sundays

My pastor started his Father’s Day Message last Sunday because he knew it would run for two weeks. He began his remarks with “rules that men have for their wives.” I think you will find these humorous:

1. Men are not mind readers.

2. Learn to work the toilet seat. You’re a big girl. If it’s up, put it down. We need it up, you need it down. You don’t hear us complaining about you leaving it down.

3. I am in shape. Round is a shape.

4. All men see in only 16 colors: like Windows Default Settings. Peach, for example, is a fruit, not a color. Pumpkin is also a fruit. We have no idea what mauve is.

5. Christopher Columbus did not need directions and neither do we.

6. Whenever possible, please say whatever you have to say during commercials.

7. Anything we said six months ago is inadmissible in argument. In fact, all comments become null and void after seven days.

8. Come to us with a problem only if you want help solving it. That’s what we do. Sympathy is what your girlfriends are for.

9. Yes and no are perfectly acceptable answers to almost any question.

10. If you ask a question you don’t want an answer to, expect an answer you don’t want to hear.

Happy Father’s Day to all you fathers out there! Thank you Charlotte and Ginger for hosting Spiritual Sundays which encourage us so much.


  1. Oh this is too funny!
    Have a blessed Sunday.

  2. I like a preacher with a sense of humor. We're looking forward to hearing Dr. Tim Kimmell tomorrow morning. My daughter calls him a stand up comedian. He writes good books and is an excellent preacher too.
    Have a wonderful Spiritual Sunday.

  3. Don't you just love the commonalities among the male gender? It wouldn't be so funny were it not so true!

    I like "round is a shape". I'm going to use that one myself!


  4. I'll make sure to show these to my hubby. I'm sure he would agree with them. Thanks for the Sunday morning smile!

  5. Pretty cute! Thanks for sharing today and have a wonderful Sunday.

  7. LOL Good one. I'd love to hear that message. Happy Sunday!

  8. Very funny. I need a good laugh early in the morning. Now I need to go get ready for church.

  9. You definitely put a smile on my face this morning Mary! Thanks for sharing part of your pastor's message. My hubby remembers everything I've done and said when it suits him. I totally forget. But we do laugh about that.

  10. Good morning Mary!

    Isn't humor a great way of communicating? I think when we're smiling/laughing our souls just become more open and receptive to God's messages.

    'Hope you're enjoying a great day! Your post has made mine better already!

  11. LOL! That is too cute...and truthful! Thanks for my Sunday laugh!

  12. So cute! Men are men no matter where, right? Your pastor has a good sense of humor!


  13. Had a very busy night until the last minute that I was supposed to be done with my shift! It felt like I got beaten up...so thank you for sharing this, a time now for me to relax and have a little laugh. A little massage for my face as I smile, too. Happy Father's Day to your hubby and all our praise and worship to our Father Who deserves it! Happy Sunday sister! Blessings and love to you. I brought you some cookies! Told ya, we'll put our feet up on our favorite seats today! Chocolate chip okay? :)
