It was Palm Sunday but because of a sore throat, 5-year
-old Johnny stayed home from church with a sitter. When
the family returned home, they were carrying several
palm fronds. Johnny asked them what they were for.
“People held them over Jesus’ head as he walked by,”
his father told him.
“Wouldn’t you know it,” Johnny fumed, “the one Sunday
I don’t go and he shows up.”
Since that was a short one, here’s another.
Several children found a dead robin. Feeling that a proper
burial should be performed, they secured a small box and
some cotton batting, dug a hole in the back yard, and made
ready to dispose of the deceased.
The minister’s 5-year-old son was chosen to say the prayer.
And so with great dignity, he intoned, “Glory be to the
Father…and unto the Son…and into the hole he goes.”
