On the lighter side..."A joyful heart is the health of the body..." Proverbs 17:22

Two brothers, 8 and 10 years old, were exceedingly mischievous. Whatever went wrong in the neighborhood, it turned out they had a hand in it. Their parents were at their wit’s end trying to control them. Hearing about a priest nearby who worked with delinquent boys, the mother suggested to the father that they ask the priest to talk with the boys. The mother went to the priest and made her request. He agreed, but said he wanted to see the younger boy first and alone. So the mother sent him to the priest.

The priest sat the boy down across a huge, impressive desk he sat behind. For about five minutes they just sat and stared at each other. Finally, the priest pointed his forefinger at the boy and asked sternly, "Where is God?"

"I don’t know," replied the boy. "Well you better find him," said the priest. Whereupon the boy ran out of the room and home as fast as he could. He raced up to his bedroom where his brother was playing, and said, "We are really in trouble now, God is lost and they think we took him!"

A little boy opened the big old family Bible and with fascination, he looked at the old pages. As he turned them something, fell out of the Bible. He picked it up and looked at it closely. It was an old leaf from a tree that had been pressed in between the pages.

"Momma, look what I found, "the boy called out. "What have you got there?" she asked. With astonishment in the young boy’s voice he answered: "It’s Adam’s suit!"

Sister, who had taught for years in the first grade, was asked to take over the eighth grade class for several weeks. "You know," she remarked to the principal after the first day. "I had most of those children in the first grade. They were so sweet I could have ate them. After one day with them as teenagers, I wish now I had!"
