Jesus is the number one priority in my life, and without Him I wouldn't be where I am, doing what I'm doing, and I try very hard to give Him the Glory in everything I do. It's hard sometimes, though, to be thankful for everything He's blessed me with. Life is too short to sit around and whine and complain about how hard things are. When it comes right down to it...EVERYONE has a hard life. You're not alone in your pain so don't act like it. It comes down to three "L's": Live for Jesus, Love everyone, Let it all out. Don't take the little things in life for granted.

God and His Children....

Whenever your kids are out of control, you can take comfort from the thought that even God's omnipotence did not extend to his kids.
After creating heaven and earth, God created Adam and Eve.
And the first thing God said to them was: "Don't."
"Don't what?" Adam asked.
"Don't eat the forbidden fruit," said God.
"Forbidden fruit? Really? Where is it?" Adam and Eve both asked, jumping up and down excitedly.
"It's over there," said God, wondering why he hadn't stopped after making the elephants.

A few minutes later, God saw the kids having an apple break, and he was very angry.
"Didn't I tell you not to eat that fruit?" the first parent asked.
"Uh-huh", replied Adam.
"Then why did you do it?" God asked exasperatedly.
"I dunno," Adam answered.

GOD'S PUNISHMENT was that Adam and Eve should have children of their own.
Thus, the pattern was set, and it has never changed. But there is a reassurance in this story. If you have persistently and lovingly tried to give your children wisdom, and they haven't taken it, don't be so hard on yourself.
If GOD had trouble handling his children, what makes you think it should be a piece of cake for YOU???

Welcome.......Enjoy the show.....

Hey dudes! How are you all doin'? My name is ALPHA DUDE! But you can call me...ALPHA DUDE! I am a part of the Alpha Course ministry at Northview Christian Life Church, in Carmel, Indiana.

The best part about being Alpha Dude is the people. It is a fun job that doesn’t involve any heavy lifting and I get to have a lot of fun. But it is mostly about people, both children and adults alike.

Being Alpha Dude, I get to have fun, act silly and tell jokes. I will tell jokes to anyone who will listen. I like to make people laugh, or at least smile. I don’t care if people are laughing with me or at me. As long as they are laughing, that means they are experiencing at least the slightest bit of joy, even if only for a moment. I know it isn’t my job to make people happy, but I try to at least make them feel good while I have the chance.

One thing I’ve learned since I was asked to be the Alpha Dude, is that people like to laugh. They also to share their own bits of humor with me as well. Also, the Alpha Director likes to open each session with a joke. Some of them are actually funny (and some are not). I’ve tried my best to only include the funny ones here. Not everyone is going to laugh at every joke in this book, and that’s okay. (this is taken from the introduction in "The Official Alpha Dude Joke Book").

A special thanks goes out to my wonderful bride-to-be Chris, for putting up with my silliness. Someone once asked her if I suffered from mental illness. She simply replied, “Oh heavens no, he enjoys it!”

I’d also like to extend my appreciation to my big brother, Rick Lindsey, who established the “Scott Trammell Project” to insure that I don’t tell any joke more than once, and that the ones I do share are actually funny. If, for some reason, I do not adhere to this criteria, I get punched in the arm. Rick has enlisted several rather large and strong fellows to assist in this effort. I have learned a lot through this experience, and lucky for me, I learn quickly.

So go ahead, sit back and enjoy the ride. If you like what you see here, share the joy. If you don’t, then please don’t tell Rick, I’m not sure I could survive the beating. “The joy of the Lord is my Strength”.

If you are looking for dirty jokes, you've come to the wrong place. These jokes and stories are clean, and a lot of fun.

Thanks for stopping by...........Dudes!
