When she got to the airline counter, she presented her ticket to New York and as she gave the agent her luggage she asked,
“I’d like you to send my green suitcase to Hawaii, and my red suitcase to London.”
The confused agent said, “I’m sorry, we can’t to that.”
“Really? I am so relieved to hear you say that because, that’s exactly what you did to my luggage last year!”
Christmas time is a season when many people are more interested in the present than the past.
Many years ago, I was casting kids at our church for the annual Christmas play. I gave the children choices, such as Shepherd, Lamb, Villager.
One 5-year-old couldn’t decide, so I said, “Luke, you can be a Villager.”
He said, “OK,” and ran over to his parents. Very excited, he said to them:
“Guess what! I get to be a mini-van!”
A little boy forgot his lines in a Sunday School presentation.
His mother, sitting in the front row to prompt him, gestured and formed the words silently with her lips, but it didn’t help. Her son’s memory was blank.
Finally, she leaned forward and whispered the cue, “I am the light of the world.”
The child beamed proudly and with great feeling and a loud, clear voice said,
“My mom is the light of the world.”
