Jesus Loves You! Not to be used as a flotation device.

In an on-going series of Jesus Loves You Twitter/Facebook status updates, I thought it was time to compile the most recent offerings. I average about five of these per week, and get plenty of suggestions from folks.  In this most current batch I drew on hymns and praise songs for some of my inspiration. You will also find me playing with various warnings and disclaimers and hear echos from current events including H1N1 flu pandemic and the economy.

Over at Facebook we have had long discussions about certiain ones. Sometimes people get tickled, offended or downright inspired. Some in the series are ironic, some silly, some serious. I will let you decide which is which. Have a read, and let me know which are your favorite. Hey, you can even add your own in the comments section!  Wanna follow me on Twitter to get these as they happen? Check out my Twitter Page.

    Nice! Funniest (I laughed): Jesus Loves You! But he can’t afford the restaurants where you eat & feels uncomfortable with the dynamics when you always pay.

    Somehow I can just see that scene. So true. So weird. XD Keep it up!
