……………………THOUGHT FOR THE DAY…………………….

( MARK 10:14 *NIV )

Now in keeping with our Saturday tradition I will share a
smile or two with you this morning. The following message
was sent to us by one of our Brother-In-Christ, and it is
titled “Kid’s In Church.”

3-year-old, Reese: “Our Father, Who does art in heaven,
Harold is His name. Amen.”
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 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.”
After the christening of his baby brother in church, Jason
sobbed all the way home in the back seat of the car. His
father asked him three times what was wrong. Finally, the
boy replied, “That preacher said he wanted us brought up
in a Christian home, and I wanted to stay with you guys.”
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.”
One particular four-year-old prayed, “And forgive us our
trash baskets as we forgive those who put trash in our
A Sunday school teacher asked her 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.”
Six-year-old Angie and her four-year-old brother Joel were
sitting together in church. Joel giggled, sang, and talked out
loud. Finally, his big sister had had enough. “You’re not
supposed to talk out loud in church.” “Why? Who’s going to
stop me?” Joel asked. Angie pointed to the back of the
church and said, “See those two men standing by the door?
They’re hushers.”
A mother was preparing pancakes for her sons, Kevin, 5
and Ryan 3. The boys began to argue over who would get
the first pancake. Their mother saw the opportunity for a
moral lesson. “If Jesus were sitting here, He would say,
‘Let my brother have the first pancake, I can wait.'” Kevin
turned to his younger brother and said, “Ryan, you be
A father was at the beach with his children when the
four-year-old son ran up to him, grabbed his hand, and led
him to the shore where a seagull lay dead in the sand.
“Daddy, what happened to him?” the son asked. “He died
and went to Heaven,” the Dad replied. The boy thought a
moment and then said, “Did God throw him back down?”
A wife invited some people to dinner. At the table, she
turned to their six-year-old daughter and said, “Would you
like to say the blessing? “I wouldn’t know what to say,” the
girl replied. “Just say what you hear Mommy say,” the wife
answered. The daughter bowed her head and said,
“Lord, why on earth did I invite all these people to dinner?”

A Sunday school teacher asked her class, “What was
Jesus’ mother’s name?” One child answered, “Mary.”
The teacher then asked, “Who knows what Jesus’ father’s
name was?” A little boy said, “Verge.”
Confused, the teacher asked, “Where did you get that?”
The boy said, “Well, you know they are always talking
about Verge n’ Mary.
