Choose to laugh.

Tell a funny story. No, funnier than that.  That's a good one.

Order french fries with your meal. (at least sometimes.)

Take a nap and go to the store for a bottle of pop come home and watch Andy Griffith.  It's a full day.

Invite your enemies to church.  They'll get saved and find out you were right all along.  Brag about this daily.

Talk with your mouth full. You may lose friends with this one, but it's your choice.

Stare directly at the sun.  Then stare at the moon. (you have to have a bunch of time on your hands, but that's okay). 

Gain weight and finally fit back into your favorite outfit.

Wear white in November.

Talk in the elevator.

Point at people and look confused.

Order dessert first. Then you'll be too full to eat the spinach and tuna casserole you were going to order in the first place.

Tell the truth, even if it's unpopular.

Dance in church.  David did it.

Laugh out loud in the library.

Display those love handles.  You worked hard to get them.

Sleep past 9am, get up and drink your coffee out in the back yard.  Radical huh?

Stay up past midnight.  Then call your friends and tell them you're up.

Dance down the street while wearing your iPod and sing along with the song.   

Put whipped cream on your salad.

Eat Bon Bons.  (what's a Bon Bon?)

Wear your sunglasses at night.  Yeah baby.

Pray for the President instead of criticizing his every move.

Send God an e-mail.  It's

Answer the door in your robe and say, "Not now. I'm on my way out."

Order a bowl of fruit and a side of fried chicken.

Rip the tags off your mattress. Glue them on someone else's mattress. 

Show your hair's natural color. Your Mother will be proud.

Wear your pajamas to the store. Tell them you dreamed you were going to school.

Go to the dollar store and ask for change for a dollar.  Isn't that what it's for?

Laugh at your mistakes.  Share them with your friends.  Laugh at their mistakes. Make more mistakes.  Laugh at those mistakes.  This line was a mistake.

Tell your sister you're proud of her. Call your sister. Find your sister's number. Call information. Adopt a sister. 

Refuse to get a tight perm.  Just say no. 

Drink milk right out of the carton while holding a glass in the other hand. Got milk? Buy whole milk.  Milk a cow.  Adopt a cow.  Send the cow to live with your sister. 

Dare to turn your life over to Christ.  He has all the answers.  No, really.  I thought I had all the answers, but then I found out I didn't. I couldn't believe it. I mean, I had some of the answers.  Okay, two of the answers, but one of them was to invite Christ to rule in my life.  And boy, does He know what he's doing.  Do you know what you're doing? I know where I'm going and how I'm getting there.  How?  Because Christ said I am the way, the truth and the life.  Not one of the ways, but the way.  

Do you want to know where you're going and how to get there?  Choose life.  Choose Christ.  Why not? He loves you and he will forgive you for sending that cow to your sister and for all the other mistakes.  He loved you even when you showed up at the store in your pajamas. He knew you were the type to put whipped cream on your salad, yet He has a purpose for your life.  Hand it over to Him and watch what He does with it.  He owns the cattle on a thousand hills.  Now, He's got milk!  He'll be your provider. Go ahead.  Make His day. Just say yes.  Then stay up late, put your sunglasses on and call all of your friends and tell them how you changed your life.  Oh yeah, and call your sister. Tell her you're sorry about the cow thing.
