KIDS SAY THE FUNNIEST THINGS


A Sunday School teacher decided to have her young class memorize one of the most quoted passages in the Bible -- Psalm 23.  She gave the youngsters a month to learn the verse.  Little Bobby was excited about the task, but he just couldn't remember the Psalm.  After much practice, he could barely get past the first line.  On the day that the kids were scheduled to recite Psalm 23 in front of the congregation, Bobby was so nervous.  When it was his turn, he stepped up to the microphone and said proudly, "The Lord is my shepherd . . . and that's all I need to know!"

When a mother saw a thunderstorm forming in mid-afternoon, she worried about her seven-year-old daughter who would be walking the three blocks from school to home.  Deciding to meet her, the mother saw her daughter walking nonchalantly along, stopping to smile whenever lightning flashed.  Seeing her mother, the little girl ran to her, explaining happily, "All the way home, God's been taking my picture!"

A mother took her three-year-old daughter to church for the first time.  The church lights were lowered, and then the choir came down the aisle, carrying lighted candles.  All was quiet until the little one started to sing in a loud voice, "Happy Birthday to you, happy birthday to you...."

A little boy walked down the beach, and as he did, he spied a matronly woman sitting under a beach umbrella on the sand.  He walked up to her and asked, "Are you a Christian?"  "Yes."  "Do you read your Bible every day?" She nodded her head, "Yes."  "Do you pray often?" the boy asked next, and again she answered, "Yes."  With that he asked his final question.  "Will you hold my quarter while I go swimming?"

One day a space shuttle crashed to the ground in the yard of a preschool.  When he finally struggled out of the wreckage, the astronaut shouted, "I'm free!  I'm free!!!"  At this point, one of the little children standing there shouted back, "Big deal, I'm four!"

A Sunday School teacher asked her class, "Does anyone here know what we mean by sins of omission?"  A small girl replied:  "Aren't those the sins we should have committed, but didn't?"

A bright 8-year-old child was being tested by the Speech Teacher and was given analogies and asked to describe the following differences:
Speech Teacher:  "What's the difference between an oak tree and a Christmas tree?"
Child:  "One has leaves and the other has needles."
Teacher:  "Very good!  What's the difference between a saucer and a plate?"
Child:  "One flies and the other doesn't."

A father was reading Bible stories to his young son.  He read, "The man named Lot was warned to take his wife and flee out of the city, but his wife looked back and was turned to salt."  His son asked, "What happened to the flea?"

Six-year-old Angie and her four-year-old brother Joel were sitting together in church.  Joel giggled, sang, and talked out loud.  Finally, his big sister had enough.  "You're not supposed to talk out loud in church."  "Why?  Who's going to stop me?" Joel asked.  Angie pointed to the back of the church and said, "See those two men standing by the door?  They're hushers."

Attending a wedding for the first time, a little girl whispered to her mother, "Why is the bride dressed in white?"  "Because white is the color of happiness and today is the happiest day of her life," her mother tried to explain, keeping it simple.  The child thought about this for a moment, then said, "So, why's the groom wearing black?"

On the first day of school, the Kindergarten teacher said, "If anyone has to go to the bathroom, hold up two fingers."  A little voice from the back of the room asked, "How will that help?"

A three-year-old put his shoes on by himself.  His mother noticed the left was on the right foot.  She said, "Son, your shoes are on the wrong feet."  He looked up at her with a raised brow and said, "Don't kid me, Mom.  I KNOW they're my feet."

A three-year-old boy went with his dad to see a litter of kittens.  On returning home, he breathlessly informed his mother, "There were two boy kittens and two girl kittens."  "How did you know?" his mother asked.  "Daddy picked them up and looked underneath," he replied.  "I think it's printed on the bottom."
