Archive for the ‘One Easter Sunday’ Category

One Easter Sunday in a large Baptist church in Birmingham, Al., the minister decided to have all the young children come forward to the front of the sanctuary in their new Easter outfits for a quick “children’s sermon.” He couldn’t help but notice one especially pretty little blond-haired, blue-eyed girl about five or six years old. She was wearing a beautiful white frilly dress, with rows and rows of ruffles head to toe. But she had such a sad expression on her face.

Trying to cheer her up, the minister called her by name, and said “you look SO lovely this morning. And I know you will wear that dress a lot because it is SO gorgeous.”

Sadly, she shook her head, and said, “no, preacher, I won’t ever wear this dress again.”

Naturally, he couldn’t imagine that response…. so he said, “but, honey, you look so beautiful in that dress.”

The little girl said, “well, thank you preacher, but I will never wear this dress again.”

The minister said, “well, I just have to ask you WHY… when it is so pretty.”

She very matter of factly (and in a rather LOUD voice) replied, “because my momma says it’s a PAIN to iron!!”
