Religious truths...

Show and Tell

A kindergarten teacher gave her class a "show and tell" assignment. Each student was instructed to bring in an object to share with the class that represented their religion. The first student got up in front of the class and said, "My name is Benjamin and I am Jewish and this is a Star of David."



The second student got up in front of the class and said, "My name is Mary. I'm a Catholic and this is a Rosary."



The third student got in up front of the class and said, "My name is Tommy. I am Baptist, and this is a casserole."



The Best Way To Pray



A priest, a minister and a guru sat discussing the best positions for prayer, while a telephone repairman worked nearby. "Kneeling is definitely the best way to pray," the priest said.



"No," said the minister. "I get the best results standing with my hands outstretched to Heaven."



"You're both wrong," the guru said. "The most effective prayer position is lying down on the floor." The repairman could contain himself no longer.



"Hey, fellas," he interrupted. "The best prayin' I ever did was when I was hangin' upside down from a telephone pole!"


~~So yesterday was a busy day. Joy, Joan and I shopped at the local Christmas market in the morning, which was fun...then Joy and I spent the afternoon at Haley's house with 3 other gals making two scrapbook layouts and six (count'em--6!) cards. Of course there was food and laughter involved. Haley is a great instructor.

Then Dick and I were having two wee boys for the evening, so Haley and her girls joined us for dinner and cousin time. I think today will be a day of REST! May your Sunday be filled with only good things.
