Need for Laughter

Beliefnet's Daily Joke was:

Helpful Priest?

"A priest was walking down the street one day when he noticed a very
small boy trying to press a doorbell on a house across the street. However, the
boy was very small, and the doorbell was too high for him to reach.After
watching the boy’s efforts for some time, the priest moved across the street and
walked up behind the little fellow.

Placing his hands kindly on the child’s shoulder, he leaned over and
gave the doorbell a solid ring.

Crouching down to the child’s level, the priest smiled benevolently and
asked, 'And now what, my little man?'

To which the boy replied, 'Now we run!”

Now who would have thought a young one attempting to ring the doorbell for such a long time would be playing a prank on someone? Hee hee

I couldn't resist this one.

No Parking Zone

"A minister parked his car in a no-parking zone in a large city because
he was short of time and couldn't find a space with a meter. So he put a note
under the windshield wiper that read: 'I have circled the block 10 times. If I
don't park here, I'll miss my appointment. FORGIVE US OUR

When he returned, he found a citation from a police officer along with
this note: 'I've circled this block for 10 years. If I don't give you a ticket,

Is that a great play on words or what? Gotta love it!

And I'll end with this one.

Praying for Peas

"Years ago when my two girls were small, they were taught how to say
their blessing before eating their meal. One night as I was busy scurrying
around the kitchen, I told them both to stay their blessings without me. I took
a moment to watch them as they both squeezed their eyes tightly shut over folded

As my 4-year-old finished, her 3-year-old sister kept on
praying.Another minute or two passed before she lifted her head, looked at her
plate, and in an indignant voice said, 'Hey! My peas are still here!”

Ahhh, the sweet innocence of babes. How cute is that? Hope you all enjoyed them. I know it lifted my spirits a bit. ;)

Oh and the second one was better...hahaha!

I'm reading them gradually while commenting. hehehe! This is how I do it in your blog. hehehe!

That is such an understatement, Tammy! hahaha! They lifted my spirits a whole lot! I LOVE the third one. Is that your story?

No the third one came from the same place. I thought they were great. I could just picture the look on the pastors face with the doorbell. I'm laughing again just picturing it, and the parking ticket, how clever. The peas, that is just like a child to do that sort of thing. Too funny. Glad you enjoyed them!
