A Funny Joke!

An Atheist and a Bear

An atheist was taking a walk through the woods, admiring all that evolution had created.

"What majestic trees! What powerful rivers! What beautiful animals!", he said to himself. As he was walking along the river, he heard a rustling in the bushes behind him. When he turned to see what the cause was, he saw a 7-foot grizzly charging right towards him. He ran as fast as he could. He looked over his shoulder and saw that the bear was closing, He ran even faster, crying in fear. He looked over his shoulder again, and the bear was even closer. His heart was pounding and he tried to run even faster. He tripped and fell on the ground. He rolled over to pick himself up, but saw the bear right on top of him, reaching for him with his left paw and raising his right paw to strike him.

At that moment, the Atheist cried out "Oh my God!...." Time stopped. The bear froze. The forest was silent. Even the river stopped moving.

As a bright light shone upon the man, a voice came out of the sky, "You deny my existence for all of these years; teach others I don't exist; and even credit creation to a cosmic accident. Do you expect me to help you out of this predicament? Am I to count you as a believer?"

The atheist looked directly into the light "It would be hypocritical of me to suddenly ask You to treat me as Christian now, but perhaps could you make the bear a Christian?" "Very well," said the voice.

The light went out. The river ran again. And the sounds of the forest resumed.

And then the bear dropped his right paw ..... brought both paws together...bowed his head and spoke: "Lord, for this food which I am about to receive, I am truly thankful."

Life in the past Couple of Weeks

Well, in the time which has elapsed since my last post has been a wirl! Mom and Dad left my older brother and I to take care of our younger siblings for a whole week! We did fine keeping the house going, making sure people didn't kill each other and having company over (with permission from parents!).
After they got back, Dad had a buisness trip and was going to be gone a week. So, Mom decided it was a good time to make a few changes to some of the bedrooms. Last week we... bought paint for two bedrooms, striped the wallpaper border in the girls room and painted in the girl's and younger boy's room. This week we will be putting rooms back together and makeing quilts, of sorts, to go on the girl's beds. We still need to come up with a pattern and buy fabric. Along with the quilts we will be makeing vallances, windowseat cushions and pillows for the room. All in all my Mom intends to keep herself and me very busy! I'll post pictures of the before and after in the girls room soon.
