Bible and a haircut



A young boy had just gotten his driver's permit and inquired of his father
if they could discuss his use of the car. His father said he'd make a deal
with his son.

"You bring your grades up from a C to a B average, study your Bible a
little, get your hair cut and we'll talk about the car."

The boy thought about that for a moment decided he'd settle for the offer
and they agreed on it.

After about six weeks his father said, "Son, I'm real proud of you. You
brought your grades up and I've observed that you have been studying your
Bible, but I'm disappointed you haven't gotten your hair cut."

The young man paused a moment then said, "You know, Dad, I've been thinking
about that, and I've noticed in my studies of the Bible that Samson had long
hair, John the Baptist had long hair, Moses had long hair and there's even a
strong argument that Jesus had long hair."

And his father replied, "Did you notice they all walked everywhere they
went?"

That's a good one!

I LOVE all the shots of your kids! I used to tell our gang that they had to behave themselves first for a good shot, and then they'd be allowed to act as crazy as they wanted for the last one. We had some really crazy last pictures over the years!
