Seems there was a young soldier who, just before battle, told his Sargent that he didn’t have a rifle.

“That’s no problem, son,” said the Sargent. “Here, take this broom. Just point it at the enemy and go ‘Bangety Bang Bang’.”

“But what about a bayonet, Sarge?” asked the young recruit. The Sargent pulls a piece of straw from the end of the broom and attaches it to the handle end. “Here, use this and just go… Stabity Stab Stab”.

The recruit ends up alone on the battlefield, holding just his broom. Suddenly an enemy soldier charges at him. The recruit points the broom and says… “Bangety Bang Bang!” The enemy falls dead.

More enemies appear. The recruit amazed at his good luck goes “Bangety Bang Bang! Stabity Stab Stab!” He mows down the enemy by the dozens.

Finally the battlefield is clear except for one enemy soldier walking slowly toward him. “Bangety Bang Bang” shouts the recruit. The enemy keeps walking. “Bangety Bang Bang! Stabity Stab Stab!”

It’s no use the enemy keeps coming. “Bangety Bang Bang!” but the enemy keeps coming towards him.

He stomps the recruit into the ground and says… “Tankety Tank Tank!”

A Laugh or Two

About the author

Sybil was born in Timmins Ontario Canada. From there she moved to Red Lake, a little mining town in northern Ontario. When she was eleven years old, her family moved hundreds of miles south to the town of Bracebridge. It was here where she met her best friend Ann who introduced her to Jesus in a way that she had never known. A love for God and His word developed and she soon became a follower of Jesus. Sybil married when she was seventeen, and her husband was twenty-five. Over the years they were blessed with four children, three boys - Tim, Robert and Garth, and one girl - Karen. God took her faithful husband home to Heaven in December of 2010. And after much heartache and pain, but knowing what was best, God took her daughter Karen home to be with Him in February 2015. In spite of heart rending moments, God has blessed Syb in ways that often left her with her mouth hanging open in amazement! Years ago He began using her writings to reach out to those hurting, those needing an encouraging word, or to those needing to be strengthened with His love. Launching this website was another unimaginable blessing that God bestowed upon Sybil. As she began this new chapter in her life, she prayed Jesus would continue to put His words into her writings that would encourage you to seek Him for yourself. Through her writings and other writers articles included in this site, her prayer is that God will speak to you through these 'Gems' of Encouragement. May you be enlightened; inspired; taught Biblical truths; radiate with His joy; and that you will want to love others in the same way that Jesus loves you.
