I found an interesting story floating around Facebook today. I don’t know if it’s true or not, but it’s interesting. Maybe you’ll find it as fascinating as I did. The age old argument – faith vs science.

Professor : You are a Christian, aren’t you, son ?

Student : Yes, sir.

Professor: So, you believe in God ?

Student : Absolutely, sir.

Professor : Is God good ?

Student : Sure.

Professor: Is God all powerful ?

Student : Yes.

Professor: My brother died of cancer even though he prayed to God to heal him. Most of us would attempt to help others who are ill. But God didn’t. How is this God good then? Hmm?

(Student was silent.)

Professor: You can’t answer, can you ? Let’s start again, young fella. Is God good?

Student : Yes.

Professor: Is Satan good ?

Student : No.

Professor: Where does Satan come from ?

Just like any adolescent, I always treasured a complex life until I got my first job. My job excitement influenced me to buy the most expensive shoes I could afford.

As I received compliments from colleagues, my boss cautioned: “simplicity shows the magnanimity of the soul.”

I later would never forget these words as life threw punches at me. My boss was the richest educationist yet the simplest teacher ever in Uganda. This was the awakening of my simplicity consciousness.

Translation from German from FB – Funny things and other stuff.

Letter from a blonde mother to her blonde daughter:
Hello dearest daughter,

When you receive this letter, it will have arrived already.If not, let me know and I’ll write you a new one! I am writing slowly, because I know that you can not read very fast. The weather over here has been reasonably good. Last week it only rained twice: once for three days in the beginning of the week and once for four days towards the week-end.

About the coat you wanted, your uncle Peter said that if I were to send the metal button with the coat, it would become too expensive, because of the weight, so I’ve cut it off. You can always sew it back on again, as I’ve put it in the right hand pocket!

Your father has a new job. He has 500 men under him. He mows the lawn in the cemetery! Your sister got married and is pregnant. We don’t know the sex of the baby yet, so I can not tell you if you are going to be an uncle or an auntie, I wanted to enclose 10 dollars in the letter, but it was already closed.

Hugs from Momma!
