9 Marheshwan 5767 (day) * 31 October 2006: Halloween/Samhain

Greetings.

I’m still rather tired from the trip, especially since I did all the driving yesterday (from about 9 AM to 4 PM). I have to get around to writing up a description of the highlights...

Today’s news and commentary:Today’s weird thing is something from Emily’s collection, included below. Enjoy.

These are cute...


A ten-year old, under the tutelage of her grandmother, was becoming quite knowledgeable about the bible. Then one day she floored her grandmother by asking, “Which virgin was the mother of Jesus? The virgin Mary or the King James virgin?”

A Sunday school class was studying the Ten Commandments. They were ready to discuss the last one. The teacher asked if anyone could tell her what it was. Susie raised her hand, stood tall, and quoted, “Thou shall not take the covers off the neighbor’s wife.”

I had been teaching my three-year old daughter, Caitlin, the Lord’s Prayer. For several evenings at bedtime, she would repeat after me the lines from the prayer. Finally, she decided to go solo. I listened with pride as she carefully enunciated each word, right up to the end of the prayer: “Lead us not into temptation,” she prayed, “but deliver us some e-mail. Amen.”

One Sunday in a Midwest city, a young child was “acting up” during the morning worship hour. The parents did their best to maintain some sense of order in the pew but were losing the battle. Finally, the father picked the little fellow up and walked sternly up the aisle on his way out. Just before reaching the safety of the foyer, the little one called loudly to the congregation, “Pray for me! Pray for me!”

****

And one particular four-year old prayed, “And forgive us our trash baskets as we forgive those who put trash in our baskets.”

****

A little boy was overheard praying: “Lord, if you can’t make me a better boy,don’t worry about it. I’m having a real good time like I am.”

A Sunday school teacher asked her little children, as they were on the way to church service, “And why is it necessary to be quiet in church?”

One bright little girl replied, “Because people are sleeping!”
