God is Watching
The students were lined up in the cafeteria for lunch.
At the head of the table was a large pile of apples.
The nun made a note, and posted on the apple tray:
"Take only one. God is watching."
Moving further along the lunch line, at the other end of the table was a large pile of chocolatechip cookies.
A child had written a note,
"Take all you want. God is watching the apples."
There were two brothers who were always up to some mischief.
If somebody had been locked up in his house,
or if somebody's dog had been painted green, one always knew who the culprits were-thebrothers.
One day the boys' mother asked a priest to talk to her sons and put the fear of God in them sothat they would mend their ways.
The priest asked her to send her sons to him one at a time.
When the younger boy came, he made him sit and asked him: "Where is God?"
The boy did not answer.
The priest asked again, in a louder voice: "Where is God?"
The boy remained silent.
But when the priest asked the same question for a third time, the boy jumped up and ranaway.
He went straight to his brother.
"We are in big trouble!" he gasped.
"What's wrong?" asked the older boy, warily, wondering which of their sins had caught up withthem.
"God is missing," said the youngster, "and they think we have something to do with it!"
On the way home from the first day of school, the father asked his son, "What did you do atschool today?"
The little boy shrugged his shoulders and said, "Nothing".
Hoping to draw his son into conversation, the father persisted and said, "Well, did you learnabout any numbers, study certain letters, or maybe a particular color?"
The perplexed child looked at his father and said, "Daddy, didn't you go to school when youwere a little boy?"
