A reader of mine, knowing I am going through a rough time right now, sent me this to cheer me up. Of course, I had to share it with all of you, too!

Top Ten Saying Of Biblical Mothers

  1. Samson! Get your hand out of that lion. You don’t know where it’s been! (Judges 14:5-8).
  2. David! I told you not to play in the house with that sling! Go practice your harp. We pay good money for those lessons!

    Abraham was a real pissant who really couldn’t settle.
    Noah the sailor was a boozy beggar who God would like to nettle.
    Adam and Eve both got the heave for drinking from the kettle,

    There’s naught Ezekiel couldn’t teach you ’bout the raisin’ of the wrist.
    Solomon they say was permanently pissed.

    Joseph was a pill of his own free will, after half a pint of shandy was particularly ill.
    King David, they say, could stick it away, ‘alf a crate of whiskey every day!
    Jeramiah, Jeramiah never could get dry-uh, Daniel was fond of his Dram.
    And God Almighty had a fancy so flighty: “I am just what I am.”

    Lucifer himself is particularly missed;
    A fallen little angel and a bugger when he’s pissed.
