Dear pastors, missionaries, chaplains and friends,
Steve here… I thought I’d send you a couple jokes to put a smile on your face. Feel free to use them over the Christmas break. With all the busyness and stress of the season, I hope you take a moment to laugh out loud!
I know many of you are looking forward to all the delicious goodies that many of us enjoy at Christmas. Turkey, ham, sweets, etc., etc…
A man dies and as he’s getting a tour through Heaven, he meets a man with something under his arm. He asks his guide what the man has under his arm. “Well, he’s a Catholic and that is his missal,” the guide responds. He meets a second man with something under his arm. The guide says, “Well, he’s an Anglican and that is his common prayer book.” He meets a third man with something under his arm. The guide says, “Well, he’s a Baptist, and that is a casserole!”
And for all those dear people who say men don’t remember what their dear wives want for Christmas, here is a story to debunk that mythology:
A couple were Christmas shopping. The shopping centre was packed and as the wife walked around, she was surprised to discover that her husband was nowhere to be seen. She was quite upset because they had a lot to do and hence, she became so worried that she called him on her cell phone to ask him where he was.
In a quiet voice he said: “Do you remember the jewellers we went into about five years ago, where you fell in love with that diamond necklace that we couldn’t afford, and I told you that I would get it for you one day?”
The wife choked up and started to cry and said: “Yes, I do remember that shop.”
He replied: “Well, I’m in the hardware store next door!”
I hope you laughed, or at least chuckled.
May you and your family experience a most memorable and blessed Christmas. Let’s never become so accustomed that we miss the mystery of this wonderful time of year. Jesus in the cradle; may it put a smile on your face!
You won’t hear from me for a couple weeks over the Christmas and New Year’s break. Stay safe.
Have a blessed week,
