Daily Joke

A businessman rushed into the office of his rabbi and complained loudly about his troubles. “I am stone broke,” he cried. “My creditors call day and night demanding money. My wife says she’ll divorce me if I don’t straighten out my financial problems and my daughter say she wants me to give her a $100,000 wedding. What can I do? What can I do?” The rabbi said, “Calm yourself. I have good advice for you. What I want you to do is go home, place the Torah a table. Sit down in front of the Good Book, close your eyes  and open the Torah  at random at any page. Then take your finger and point to any place on that page, keeping your eyes closed. When you open your eyes you will find the answer to your problems under your finger.” The fellow thought the rabbi was totally confused and ridiculous. Yet, on his way home he decided to give that advice a try anyway since he had nothing to lose.

Now the clergyman hadn’t sees this fellow for three months when suddenly he rushed into the rabbi’s office and shouted. “Rabbi, good news. I am inviting you to officiate at my daughter’s $100,000 wedding.” The rabbi was astonished. “So you did what I told you.” “Yes I did,” said the businessman. “I put the Torah on the table, closed my eyes, opened at a random page and put my finger on the page. When I opened my eyes, there in front of me was the answer to my financial problems.”  “Speak up!” shouted the rabbi,  “Tell me, what were the words under your finger?” “Chapter eleven,” said the businessman.

Working for the Weekend

posted by Prayables

There may be a generation gap as wide as the Grand Canyon. But one thing Sue Ellen and her children agree on: everybody’s working for the weekend. Sound familiar? Then you’re of a certain age, can hum the tune, and know most of the lyrics to Loverboy’s famous party song.

Everybody’s workin’ for the weekend
Everybody wants a new romance
Everybody’s goin’ off the deep end
Everybody needs a second chance

Strange though, to hear it sung by the Rabbi last Shabbat in synagogue. It wasn’t a typical sermon. This one made Sue Ellen smile and think deeply about the Sabbath. His point entirely.

The sages debate why God made the seventh day one of rest. One great thinker said Man needs the Sabbath to balance the week of work. Another said no, Man needs work for contrast, so he could enjoy the Sabbath properly. Sue Ellen just knows she is exhausted at weeks end, and the Sabbath is her day to chillax. A gift from God, thank you very much.

Let the ancient sages have their debates on “Why the Sabbath?” Simply knowing the Lord made it, is enough. If you listen closely to Loverboy’s lyrics with the Sabbath in mind, you won’t hear the beer bong or slippery sheets. You can imagine a weekend of renewal and peace of mind. A great romance, a second chance. The weekend everybody’s waiting for is here.

Observe the Sabbath. Savor it. Make it holy.

Preacher Buys a Parrot

posted by Prayables

Daily Joke

A preacher is buying a parrot.

“Are you sure it doesn’t scream, yell, or swear?” asked the preacher.

“Oh absolutely. It’s a religious parrot,” the storekeeper assures him.

“Do you see those strings on his legs? When you pull the right one, he recites the lord’s prayer, and when you pull on the left he recites the 23rd Psalm.”

“Wonderful!” says the preacher, “but what happens if you pull both strings?”

“I fall off my perch, you stupid fool!” screeched the parrot.

You Light Up My Life Lyrics – Debby Boone

So many nights I sit by my window
Waiting for someone to sing me his song
So many dreams I kept deep inside me
Alone in the dark but now
You’ve come along

You light up my life
You give me hope
To carry on
You light up my days
and fill my nights with song

Rollin’ at sea, adrift on the water
Could it be finally I’m turning for home?
Finally, a chance to say hey,
I love You
Never again to be all alone

You light up my life
You give me hope
To carry on
You light up my days
and fill my nights with song

You light up my life
You give me hope
To carry on
You light up my days
and fill my nights with song

It can’t be wrong
When it feels so right
‘Cause You
You light up my life

Composer: Joseph Brooks
