A minister of a farming parish convened a prayer meeting to pray for rain during a serious drought.
Noting that on that cloudless morning the church was full to overflowing, he came to the pulpit and posed a single question to his flock:
“You all know why we’re here,” he said. “What I want to know is, why didn’t any of you bring umbrellas?”
A lady lost her handbag in the bustle of Christmas shopping.
It was found by an honest little boy and returned to her.
Looking in her purse, she commented, “Hmmm…. That’s funny. When I lost my bag there was a $20 bill in it. Now there are twenty $1 bills.”
The boy quickly replied, “That’s right, lady. The last time I found a lady’s purse, she didn’t have any change for a reward.”
