A priest and a nun are on their way back home from a trip when their car breaks down. They are unable to get it fixed, so they decide to spend the night in a hotel. The only hotel in the town has only one room available.

Priest: Sister, I don't think the Lord would have a problem, under the circumstances, if we spent the night together in this one room. I'll sleep on the lounge and you have the bed.

Nun: I think that would be okay.

They prepare for bed and each one takes their agreed place in the room. Ten minutes later ...

Nun: Father, I'm terribly cold.

Priest: Okay, I'll get you a blanket. (He does.)

Ten minutes later ...

Nun: Father, I'm still terribly cold.

Priest: Okay Sister, I'll get you another blanket. (He does.)

Ten minutes later ...

Nun: Father, I'm still terribly cold. I don't think the Lord would mind if we acted as man and wife just for this one night.

Priest: You're probably right. Get up and get your own blanket.



A mother was preparing pancakes for her sons, Kevin, 5, Ryan, 3.

The boys began to argue over who would get the first pancake.

Mom saw the opportunity for a moral lesson and said, "If Jesus was sitting here, He would say, "Let my brother have the first pancake. I can wait."

Kevin turned to his younger brother and said, "Ryan, you can have the first chance at being Jesus!"



One day a wealthy family man took his son on a trip to the country, so he could have his son see how country people live.

They stayed one day and one night in the home of a very humble farmer. At the end of the trip, and when they were back home, the father asked his son, "What did you think of the trip?"

The son replied, "Very nice, Dad."

Then the father asked his son, "Did you notice how poor they were?"

The son replied, "Yes."

The father continued, asking, "What did you learn?"

The son responded, "I learned that we have one dog in our house, and they have four.

"Also, we have a fountain in our garden, but they have a stream that has no end.

"And we have imported lamps in our garden ... where they have the stars!

"And our garden goes to the edge of our property. But they have the entire horizon as their back yard!"

The father was left speechless.

His son then said, "Thank you, dad, for showing me how poor in some ways we really are."

Learn to appreciate what you have. Wealth is all in one's point of view. That's the lesson of this little tale.



A big group of hunters were in the middle of the jungle and decided to split into smaller groups. Four of the youngest decided to form one of the smaller groups and started walking.

After a while, one of them realized they were quite far away from the main group, and that they couldn't possibly find the way back.

One of them said to the other three: "I've heard that whenever you can't find your group, what you have to do is to shoot three times to the air and wait for someone to find you."

They agree on that and shoot three times to the air, wait a while, but nothing happens.

So they shoot three more times to the air but, again, no one comes to help them. After trying three more shots one of them says to the others:

"I hope this time someone can find us ... that was my last arrow."
