Amen - Humor

I can TOTALLY see this discussion.  I guess it's one of those things, balance in all things is best.   So thanks to Diane for this one, I got a chuckle out of it when I read it the first time, and a nice broad smile when I read it just now.



A  pastor's wife was expecting a baby, so he stood before the  congregation and asked  for a raise.  After much discussion, they passed a rule that whenever the pastor's family  expanded; so would his paycheck.

After 6  children, this started to get expensive and the congregation decided to hold another meeting to  discuss the pastor's expanding salary.  A great deal of yelling and inner bickering ensued, as to how much  the pastor's additional  children were costing the church, and how much more it could potentially  cost.

After listening to them for about an  hour, the pastor rose from his chair and spoke,"Children are a gift from God, and we will  take as many gifts as He gives us."

Silence  fell over the congregation.

In the back pew, a little old lady struggled to stand, and  finally said in her frail  voice, "Rain is also a gift from God, but when we get too much of it, we wear  rubbers."

The entire  congregation said, "Amen.
