Today our pastor used a joke as a sermon highlight. Don't stop me if you've heard this one:
A young husband was ill. No matter what he did, he just couldn't seem to get better. Finally he had his wife drive him to the doctor. As he was dressing after the examination the doctor spoke to the young wife in the waiting area. "Your husband has a severe and rare case of anemia. He needs plenty of rest, a hearty home cooked breakfast, a hot lunch , and a meat and potatoes type of dinner EVERY DAY. Also, he needs his home to be kept immaculately. If you do all of this, he will live. Do you want to tell him, or do you want me to tell him?"
The wife answered that she would like to be the one to break the news to her husband, so she went to the exam room. Taking one look at his wife's face the husband asked, "How bad is it?"
The wife burst into uncontrollable sobs and finally managed to choke out, "He...said...you...were...going...to...die!!!!!"
I turned to my husband and said in a stage whisper, "Honey, you're going to die!"
He said back to me, "I've been dead for a long time."
Good thing the pastor was at the end of his sermon, because we had THE worst case of giggles you can imagine!
