      Have a joyful day! :-)


      The Sunday school teacher was carefully explaining the story of Elijah the
      Prophet and the false prophets of Baal. She explained how Elijah built the
      altar, put wood upon it, cut the steer in pieces, and laid it upon the
      altar. And then, Elijah commanded the people of God to fill four barrels of
      water and pour it over the altar. He had them do this four times "Now, said
      the teacher, "can anyone in the class tell me why the Lord would have Elijah
      pour water over the steer on the altar?"

      A little girl in the back of the room started waving her hand, "I know! I
      know!" she said, "To make the gravy!"

      LOT 'S WIFE

      The Sunday School teacher was describing how Lot's wife looked back and
      turned into a pillar of salt, when little Jason interrupted, "My Mummy
      looked back once, while she was driving," he announced triumphantly, "and
      she turned into a telephone pole!"


      A Sunday school teacher was telling her class the story of the Good
      Samaritan, in which a man was beaten, robbed and left for dead. She
      described the situation in vivid detail so her students would catch the
      drama. Then, she asked the class, "If you saw a person lying on the
      roadside, all wounded and bleeding, what would you do?" A thoughtful little
      girl broke the hushed silence, "I think I'd throw up."


      A Sunday school teacher asked, "Johnny, do you think Noah did a lot of
      fishing when he was on the Ark ?"

      "No," replied David. "How could he, with just two worms?"


      A Sunday school teacher said to her children, " We have been learning how
      powerful kings and queens were in Bible times. But, there is a higher power.
      Can anybody tell me what it is?" One child blurted out, "Aces!"


      Nine-year-old Joey, was asked by his mother what he had learned in Sunday
      school. "Well, Mom, our teacher told us how God sent Moses behind enemy
      lines on a rescue mission to lead the Israelites out of Egypt When he got to
      the Red Sea, he had his army build a pontoon bridge and all the people
      walked across safely. Then, he radioed headquarters for reinforcements. They
      sent bombers to blow up the bridge and all the Israelites were saved."
      "Now, Joey, is that really what your teacher taught you?" his mother asked.
      "Well, no, Mom. But, if I told it the way the teacher did, you'd never

      believe it!"


      A Sunday School teacher decided to have her young class memorize one of the
      most quoted passages in the Bible; Psalm 23. She gave the youngsters a month
      to learn the verse. Little Rick was excited about the task -- but, he just
      couldn't remember the Psalm. After much practice, he could barely get past
      the first line. On the day that the kids were scheduled to recite Psalm 23
      in front of the congregation, Ricky was so nervous.

      When it was his turn, he stepped up to the microphone and said proudly, "The
      Lord is my Shepherd, and that's all I need to know."

      Church Smiles

      There was a very gracious lady who was mailing an old family Bible to her
      brother in another part of the country. "Is there anything breakable in
      here?" asked the postal clerk. "Only the Ten Commandments," answered the

      While driving in Pennsylvania , a family caught up to an Amish carriage. The
      owner of the carriage obviously had a sense of humor, because attached to
      the back of the carriage was a hand printed sign... "Energy efficient
      vehicle: Runs on oats and grass.

      Caution: Do not step in exhaust.''

      Sunday after church, a Mom asked her very young daughter what the lesson was
      about. The daughter answered, "Don't be scared, you'll get your quilt."
      Needless to say, the Mom was perplexed. Later in the day, the pastor
      stopped by for tea and the Mom asked him what that morning's Sunday school
      lesson was about. He said "Be not afraid, thy comforter is coming."

      Give me a sense of humor, Lord,

      Give me the grace to see a joke,

      To get some humor out of life,

      And pass it on to other folk!
