Blog Prompt: Today is Anything Goes Day. Tell me anything!!
On the first day, God created the dog and said, â??Sit all day by the door of your house and bark at anyone who comes in or walks past. For this, I will give you a life span of twenty years.â?
The dog said, â??Thatâ??s a long time to be barking. How about only ten years and Iâ??ll give you back the other ten?â?
So God agreedâ?¦â?¦
On the second day, God created the monkey and said, â??Entertain people, do tricks, and make them laugh. For this, Iâ??ll give you a twenty-year life span.â?
The monkey said, â??Monkey tricks for twenty years? Thatâ??s a pretty long time to perform. How about I give you back ten like the dog did?â?
And God agreedâ?¦â?¦
On the third day, God created the cow and said, â??You must go into the field with the farmer all day long and suffer under the sun, have calves and give milk to support the farmerâ??s family. For this, I will give you a life span of sixty years.â?
The cow said, â??Thatâ??s kind of a tough life you want me to live for sixty years. How about twenty and Iâ??ll give back the other forty?â?
And God agreed againâ?¦â?¦
On the fourth day, God created humans and said, â??Eat, sleep, play, marry and enjoy your life. For this, Iâ??ll give you twenty years.â?
But the human said, â??Only twenty years? Could you possibly give me my twenty, the forty the cow gave back, the ten the monkey gave back, and the ten the dog gave back; that makes eighty, okay?â?
â??Okay,â? said God. â??You asked for it.â?
So that is why for our first twenty years, we eat, sleep, play and enjoy ourselves. For the next forty years, we slave in the sun to support our family.. For the next ten years, we do monkey tricks to entertain the grandchildren. And for the last ten years, we sit on the front porch and bark at everyone.
Life has now been explained to you.
There is no need to thank me for this valuable information. Iâ??m doing it as a public service.
I had the pleasure of using the most beautiful kit yet for me by Cara Mai Designz called Sophie.Â It is just beautiful with all its elements and papers, word art and frames.Â Very romantic and you can find it here.
She is also giving away a freebie from this kit at her blog.
And here is my layout using this kit.
Everyone have a wonderful day,
I’m just a country girl loving my geeky life with my wonderful husband, always taking pictures, getting my hands dirty in the garden, being crafty, exploring with travels and enjoying all this on a budget. But above all, living my faith as a child of God!
