A copy of jokes for you on this wet and rainy Friday.  Three dinosaurs come across a magical lamp. The first dinosaur rubs it and a genie appears. “I have three wishes. One for each of you,” the genie says. The first dinosaur doesn’t hesitate before his request “All right, I’ll have a big, juicy piece of meat.” Immediately, a big, juicy piece of meat appears in front of him. Instantly envious, the second dinosaur speaks up. “Well, I want a shower of meat!” As soon as he utters his wish, a shower of meat rains down upon him. The third dinosaur, not to be outdone, has to think for a second about what could possibly be better than a shower of meat. “Aha, I’ve got it!” he proclaims. “I’ll have a meatier shower!”

A frog decides to visit a fortune teller to find out if he’ll ever find his princess. The fortune teller reads his palm and after a few brief moments of contemplation, begins her reading. “I have good news and I have bad news. Which would you like to hear first?” The frog, anxious for the possibility of true love, chooses the good news first. “You are going to meet the most beautiful girl,” the fortune teller says. “She’s going to be very interested in you and will know everything there is to know about you. You’ll open up to her and give her your heart.” Pleased, the frog then cautiously asks for the so-called bad news. To this, the fortune teller replies, “You’ll meet her in a Biology class.”

Scripture Reading: 1 Peter 2:5
“like living stones, let yourselves be built into a spiritual house, to be a holy priesthood, to offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.”

Reflection Questions:
How are you being built up into a spiritual house?
What brought you joy today?
What does it mean to be included into a holy priesthood?

Prayer: Holy God, today is the day you have made and as I delight in the beautiful gifts that surround me, let joy abound and fill me with the presence of your Spirit.  Amen
