John the Baptist


Johnny's Mother looked out the window and noticed him 'playing church' with their cat. He had the cat sitting quietly and he was preaching to it.
She smiled and went about her work.


A while later she heard loud meowing and hissing and ran back
to the open window to see Johnny dunking the cat in a tub of water.
She called out, 'Johnny, stop that! The cat is afraid of water!'


Johnny looked up at her and said, 'He should have thought about that before he joined my church.'

'Therefore, whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. And whoever welcomes a little child like this in my name welcomes me.'
Matt. 18:4-5

I was SO frustrated yesterday, I came here, read your post and thought I was the first one to comment LOL Then it wouldn't take my comment and it really annoyed me.

Great post LOL

Funny! I wondered if the wet cat was a picture of yours that I've seen guest posting before. If it is, I'd be curious to see what it had to say now. :)
