The teacher asked the children in the Sunday School class, "If I sold my house and my car, had a big garage sale and gave all my money to the church, would I get into Heaven?"
"NO!" the children all answered.

Again, the answer was "NO!"
"Well," the teacher continued, "then how can I get to Heaven?"

Two boy scouts went on a nature hike in the hills picking hickory nuts. Along the way, they filled their small pails and then started to fill their pockets and shirts.
When they could hold no more nuts, they started down the country road until they came across a cemetery. The boys decided that would be a good place to stop and rest and divide out the nuts.
The two boys sat in the shade of a large oak tree and unloaded their pockets and buckets by dumping all of the nuts in a large pile. In the process, two of them rolled away and rested near the road.

All the kids looked baffled by the question except Jasper, who raised his hand and waved it excitedly.
"Yes, Jasper, how many seconds are there in a year?" the teacher asked.
"Twelve!" exclaimed Jasper.
"How on earth do you come up with that number?" asked the teacher.
Jasper explained, "Well, there's January second, February second, March second..."
1. My hands are small. Please don't expect perfection whenever I make a bed, draw a picture or throw a ball. My legs are short. Please slow down so that I can keep up with you.

3. Housework will always be there. I'm only little for such a short time. Please take time to explain things to me about this wonderful world, and do so willingly.

Freddie ran into the kitchen crying and cradling something in his hands. "Mommy, my turtle is dead," Freddie told his mother as he held the turtle out to her.
His mother kissed him on the head, then said, "That's all right. We'll wrap him in tissue paper, put him in a little box, then have a nice burial ceremony in the back yard. After that, we'll go out for an ice cream soda, and then get you a new pet. I don't want you . . ." Her voice trailed off as she noticed the turtle move. "Hey! Freddie, your turtle is not dead after all!"
"Oh," the boy said. "Can I kill it?"
