Envious Penguin

Envious Penguin - Proverbs 14:30

A penguin would be quite sad and frustrated if he tried to use his wings to fly like other birds.  But a penguin in the water is quite content because there he can use his wings to swim gracefully.  Likewise, we will not find contentment and joy until we stop comparing ourselves to others, and instead, inquire of the Lord as to the place he has for us in his plan.

King James Version


Salvager - John 19:10

Like the auto collector and restorer in the cartoon, Jesus sees great value in people – even people with broken, damaged lives – so much so that He paid a high price to buy them back from Satan: His life. Jesus can heal and restore the life of anyone who puts their faith and trust in Him.

King James Version


Justice - Romans 3:26

God not only shows His justice by judging and condemning sin, but He shows His mercy in Jesus, whom He sent to pay the penalty for our sin. If we authorize Him by faith, Jesus will be our defense attorney before the judge.

King James Version

10 year anniversary

Joyfultoons.com went live on the internet on January 1, 2007. So, today, January 1, 2017, marks the 10th anniversary of the website. Before 2007, my cartoons had only been seen by a small number of readers: family, friends, & fellow church attendees. When I decided to share the cartoons with the world on the internet, I did not know how well they would be received. But, I was very blessed by the overwhelmingly positive response I received. People from all over the world have written me by email to tell me how they have enjoyed the cartoons, and are sharing them with fellow believers, and non-believers in various and creative ways. Over these past ten years I have heard from many people asking to use the cartoons in church bulletins, newsletters, websites, Facebook pages, blogs, etc . I am very thankful to the Lord for allowing and helping me to create these cartoons. I am also thankful for the many people who have supported the website in different ways. Their encouragement helps keep me going, and I hope to keep adding to the collection of cartoons in the coming years.

Sincerely, Mike Waters
