Jokes of the Day
Doctor Bloomfield, who was known for extraordinary treatment of arthritis, had a waiting room full of people when a little old lady, almost bent over in half, shuffled in slowly, leaning on her cane. When her turn came, she went into the doctor’s office and, amazingly, emerged within 5 minutes walking completely erect with her head held high.
A woman in the waiting room who had seen all this rushed up to the little old lady and said, “It’s a miracle! You walked in bent in half and now you’re walking erect. What did that doctor do?”
“Gave me a longer cane.”
Getting Out of Jury Duty
Judge: Is there any reason you could not serve as a juror in this case?
Juror: I don’t want to be away from my job that long.
Judge: Can’t they do without you at work?
Juror: Yes, but I don’ t want them to know it.
A young couple were having their first fight, and it was a big one. After a while, the husband said: “When we got married, you promised to love, honor and obey.”
His bride replied: “I know. But I didn’t want to start an argument in front of all those people at the wedding.”
At a wedding I attended, the priest called for a moment of silence to remember the faithful dead.
As the church grew quiet, a little boy sitting in front of me turned to his father and said excitedly, “Dad, you have some of their albums!”

Her Mother’s Hope by Francine Rivers
Her Mother’s Hope explores the complicated relationship between family matriarch Marta and her daughter, Hildemara Rose. On the eve of the First World War, fiery Marta Schneider leaves Switzerland and her difficult childhood behind, determined to find a new life on her own terms.
Barely out of her teens, Marta is haunted by a devastating loss that fuels her ambition to one day own a hotel. From the cramped quarters of a French housekeeping school to the portrait-lined halls of a stately English manner, Marta becomes a hard-working domestic who has little time to dwell on what might have been. Instead, she draws her strength from what could be.
