A Catholic Priest, a Protestant Minister, and a Jewish Rabbi were fishing one day. The Priest and the Minister got into a deep discussion as to when life truly begins.
The Priest said that life is eternal, even before one is born into this world. The Minister disagreed and claimed life can only truly begin once a person is actually born into this world.
The two debated this for some time. Finally, the Rabbi spoke up and said, "My brothers, you have it all wrong. True life can only begin when the kids graduate collage and move out of the house."
The minister's little six-year-old girl had misbehaved during the week. Her mother decided to give her a punishment. She told her she couldn't go to the Sunday School Picnic on Saturday.
When the day came, her mother felt she had been too harsh and changed her mind. When she told the little girl she could go to the picnic, the child's reaction was one of gloom and unhappiness.
"What's the matter? I thought you'd be glad to go to the picnic." her mother said.
"It's too late!" the little girl said. "I've already prayed for rain."
