Tall Tales from the Local Church! (Humor)

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty - Atlantic Shore

A local church was badly in need of a coat of paint, but the congregation was poor.

Country Church (sxc-David Lat)So the pastor decided he'd do the painting himself. But all he had was one bucket of paint.

He solved the problem by gathering a bunch of buckets and some water, and he thinned the paint enough to cover the entire church.

Then he spent all day painting. That night it rained in fact it poured.

It was still raining the next morning when the pastor went to the church and discovered the white puddles surrounding the church.  All the paint had washed away!

He was quite discouraged.  He looked up and asked, "God, why did you let it rain and wash off all my hard work?"
storm (sxc-Jami Lee)
And
with a clap of thunder God replied, "Repaint! Repaint! And thin no more!"

It's Monday, Share a Smile and have a great week!

Laura, I guess I'm a thinner too, and I'm pretty sure it's too late for me to repaint.

Hi:We love your web site. We plan on arriving for the 1st Preformance on Sat. 8/7/10 after drnviig 7-8 hours from Lincoln Nebraska. Ten year old Peyton and six year old Brooke has read every Wilder book. These girls would even gress up in their Wilder dresses if it wasn't predicted to be so warm. We are worried about seating. Could you ever be sold out and if so what time must we arrive in order to be sure of getting a good seat?About how long does it take to see and go through the Laura Inggalls Wilder home site area?Thanking you in advance,Poppa LeRoy and BonnieWalker, MOPS. Your preformance will be be such a high point in our grand children's once a year visit to us grandparents, here in Missouri.
