Thank God for our military

A Soldier, a Sailor an Airman and a Marine got into an argument about which service was the greatest. The arguing became so heated that they eventually ended up killing each other. Soon, they found themselves at the Pearly Gates of Heaven They meet St Peter and decided that only he would be the ultimate source of truth and honesty, so they osked him: "St Peter which branch of the American Armed Forces is the best?" St. Peter instantly replied: "I can't answer that. But I will ask God what he thinks next time I see him. Some time later, the four saw St. Peter again and reminded him of the question and asked if he was able to get an answer. Suddenly a sparkling white dove landed on St. Peter's shoulder. In the dove's beak is a note guilded with gold dust. St. Peter says to the four men, "Your answer from the Boss. Let's see what he says." St. Peter opens the note. Trumpets blare and gold dust drifts into the air. Harps play crescendos and St. Peter begins to read the note aloud to the four young men:

I want to be like Jesus

After dinner, a six- and a four-year-old were fighting over who would get the last cookie. Back and forth they went, "GIMME!" "NO, IT'S MINE!" Finally, the dad said, "Paul and John, listen to me. If Jesus were in this situation, he would say to the other one, 'You take the last cookie, because I love you'." The older one thought about it, then responded, "O.K. John, you be Jesus."


A man was stranded on the proverbial deserted Pacific island for years. Finally, one day, a boat comes sailing into view, and the man frantically waves and draws the skipper's attention. The boat comes near the island and the sailor gets out and greets the stranded man. After a while the sailor notices three huts and asks if there is anyone else on the island. "No", replys the man.

"Well, what are those three huts you have here?"

"Well, that's my house there."

"What's that next hut?" asks the sailor.

"I built that hut to be my church."

"What about the other hut?"

"Oh, that's where I used to go to church."

For those who died in the Service

A man was having real discipline problems with his 5-year-old son. During the evening service, the little boy would fidget, tear pages out of the hymnal, and make noises. The father said, "If you don't settle down, I'll take you out for a spanking." The boy continued to hum and squeal like a pig. His father took him out for a spanking. Upon their return, the boy picked up a hymnal a threw it at his dad. Promptly, he was taken out for another spanking. Upon returning, he kicked the pew in front of him. Out he went for another spanking.

Finally, the pastor dismissed the church and the family started home. As they went through the vestibule, the boy asked, "Daddy, what's that plaque say?"

"It says: 'Dedicated to all the men who have died in the Service'."

"Oh," said the little boy, as he thought about it a minute.

"Daddy," he asked, "Was that the morning or the evening service?"
