Irked to the max

Don’t you just hate it when some idiot hacks your account and tries to scam your friends and family? I do. It happened to me today. Thankfully one of my savvy cousins was skeptical enough to contact me and let me know what was happening. So I have had to change all my passwords, change my profile picture, and run all my virus, spyware and malware scans. Pain in the posterior to say the least.

So I call down a pox on malicious hackers. May your toenails turn black and your eyebrows turn purple. And I won’t cry if your computer shocks you. That is all.

Okiewife, who is feeling very vengeful….but I’ll get over it.

Sunday School

We had a large Sunday school class for pre-teens for our small town-12 to 15 members. And I’m sure we were a trial for our patient and dedicated teacher. One of our weekly assignments was to learn a new Bible verse to recite on Sunday morning.

The problem was we were all so “busy” with chores at home, playing games with neighborhood friends, not to mention bicycling and roller skating, that we often forgot until Sunday morning that a verse needed to be memorized.

Wish I had a dollar for each time “Jesus wept” was recited. In close second place was “The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want.” Our poor, longsuffering teacher never lost patience with us. The woman was a saint. Some of her devotion must have penetrated our pre-adolescent brains though, because most of us are still followers of Jesus, and I, for one, still read the Bible daily.

The Proverb “train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it” is just as true now as it was 65 years ago.

Okiewife, remembering Milton Christian Church.
