PostSubject: The Pastor's Family   Mon Jun 30, 2014 11:25 pm

A pastor's wife was expecting a baby, so he stood
before the congregation and asked for a raise.
 
After much discussion, they passed a rule that whenever the pastor's family
expanded; so would his paycheck.
 
After 6 children, this started to get expensive and the
congregation decided to hold another meeting to discuss the pastor's
expanding salary.
 
A great deal of yelling and inner bickering ensued, as to how much
the pastor's additional children were costing the church, and how
much more it could potentially cost.
 
After listening to them for about an hour, the pastor rose from his
chair and spoke, "Children are a gift from God, and we will take
as many gifts as He gives us. 
 

Silence fell over the congregation. In the back pew, a little
old lady struggled to stand, and finally said in her frail voice,
"Rain is also a gift from God, but when we get too much of it, we
wear rubbers."
 
The entire congregation said, "Amen."

Those little old ladies are full of wisdom and tell it like it is.
