Kids in church

Bob e-mailed these to me and I thought they were cute enough to share. Hope you get a smile from them!

3-year-old Reese:
"Our Father, Who does art in heaven,
Harold is His name.
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."
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."
One particular four-year-old prayed,
"And forgive us our trash baskets
As we forgive those who put trash in our baskets."
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."
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 Jesus!"

Those are funny. I remember my nephew used to sing the song victory in Jesus....... "He sought me and he bought me ......and he plunged me to victory.

"He socked me and he bopped me .... and he punched me to victory."

When my nephew was about 5 or 6yrs old he aked my parents if mother nature was God's wife. The other night Kaitlyn and Chloe were talking about how unfair it would be to play hide-and-seek with our all knowing and all seeing God... to which Chloe says "Oh, He can play, you just can't let Him be the counter."

Those are so funny! It makes you realize again how careful you have to be around kids because they sure do pick up on a lot! :)

This past week Ainsley took Wyatt and Dylan to a pet shop and Wyatt fell in love with a kitten. He begged for his mother to buy it. His mother said, " We cannot have a cat because your daddy is allergic to them." Wyatt said, "Mommy, daddy is not a jerk!"
