On The Lighter Side

I don’t know whether or not this is a true story but when I heard it it certainly brought a smile to my lips:-

At the beginning of a church service, the Minister that day was looking very solemn and serious.

“Welcome,” he said, “to the second Sunday in Lent. For all of you who have given up something at this time, well done! If you aren’t allowing yourself to eat chocolate that seems a good choice.”

“But one thing for you to bear in mid,” the Minister went on, smiling, “is that there are jaffa cakes to enjoy with coffee after the service today. So, if you are being strict with yourself when it comes to treats during Lent, you are allowed to go and peek at them and feel very self-righteous!”

With many peaceful blessings
