Church Tales and More

It was palm sunday and, because of a sore throat, five-year-old Johnny stayed home from church with a sitter. When the family returned home, they were carrying several palm branches.
The boy asked what they were for.
"People held them over Jesus' head as he walked by."
"Wouldn't you know it," the boy fumed, "The one Sunday i don't go, he shows up!"
One Easter Sunday morning as the Minister was preaching the children's sermon, he reached into his bag of props and pulled out an egg. He pointed at the egg and asked the children, "What's in here?"
"I know!" a little boy exclaimed. "Pantyhose!!"
Support a Family
The prospective father-in-law asked, "Young man, can you support a family?"
The surprised groom-to-be replied, "Well, no. i was just planning to support your daughter. the rest of you will have to fend for yourselves."
First Time Ushers
A little boy in church for the first time watched as the ushers passed around the offering plates.
When they came near his pew, the boy said loudly, "Don't pay for me daddy i'm under five."
The Sunday School teacher asked, "Now, Johnny, tell me, do you say prayers before eating?"
"No Sir," He replied, "We don't have to, my mom is a good cook!"
Climb the Walls
"Oh, i sure am happy to see you," the little boy said to his Grandmother on his mother's side. "Now maybe daddy will do the trick he has been promising us."
The Grandmother was curious. "What trick is that?" she asked.
"I heard him tell mommy that he would climb the walls if you came to visit," the little boy answered.
The Water Pistol
When my three-year-old son opened the birthday gift from his grandmother, he discovered a water pistol... He squealed with delight and headed for the nearest sink.
I was not so pleased. I turned to mom and said, "I'm surprised at you. don't you remember how we used to drive you crazy with water guns?"
Mom smiled and then replied..... "I remember!!"
Little Johnny asked his Grandma how old she was.
Grandma answered, "39 and holding."
Johnny thought for a moment, and then said, "And how old would you be if you let go?"
