Title: Metanoia time
Post by: Ruth Ann on Mar 03 2013 04:58:28 PM
One day a pastor of a small church in the country decided to paint his church. Being very frugal, he calculated carefully to spend the absolute minimum on paint. Unfortunately, when he was only halfway finished, he started to realize that he did not have enough paint to complete the job. Not wishing to spend any more money he decided to dilute the remainder of his paint with paint thinner to stretch it out longer. It turned out that he had to repeat this process several times before he finished.

Just when the pastor finished the last brushstroke on the side of the church, all of a sudden, the sky darkened, and it started to rain hard.

As the pastor watched the paint stream down the side of his freshly painted church he cried out  in desperation, “Oh Lord! All my hard work has been wasted. What am I to do?”

Just then, a fearsome voice thundered from heaven above: “Repaint, you thinner! And thin no more!”

But it's not really a joke.

Read my friend's blog post:

A joke Ruth, are you sure?

It could be that the Lord had forgotten to put His teeth in that morning!

Yours in His Everlovingtenderkindness,

Colin.

I don't know about the rest of you but I've been feeling a lot thicker lately.  Must be my diet.

The real problem is when you can not see your shoe laces never mind tie them!
