A Conversation With Jesus

Many times when I am troubled or confused, I find comfort in sitting in my back yard having a scotch and soda along with a quiet conversation with Jesus. This happened to me again after a particularly difficult day.

I said "Jesus, why do I work so hard?" And I heard the reply: "Men find many ways to demonstrate the love they have for their family. You work hard to have a peaceful, beautiful place for your friends and family to gather."

I said: "I thought that money was the root of all evil." And the reply was : "No, the LOVE of money is the root of all evil. Money is a tool; it can be used for good or bad".

I was starting to feel better, but I still had that one burning question, so I asked it . "Jesus", I said, "What is the meaning of life? Why am I here?"

He replied, "That is a question many men ask. The answer is in your heart and is different for everyone. I would love to chat with you some more, Senor, but now, I have to finish your lawn."

Jesus is my gardner

I vaguely recall there being a brouhaha about a lawn service leaving signs in people's yard that said "Jesus is my gardner". I couldn't find that again in a quick google, but I did find a t-shirt for sale.
