One Sunday a pastor found several letters awaiting him. He opened one and found it contained the single word, "Fool."
Quietly and with becoming seriousness he shared the letter with the congregation and announced, "I have known many an instance of a person writing a letter and forgetting to sign his name, but this is the only instance I have ever known of someone signing his name and forgetting to write the letter."
Just then, another huge wave appears out of nowhere and crashes on the beach.
As the water recedes, the boy is standing there, smiling, splashing around as if nothing had happened.
A loud voice booms from the sky, "I have returned your grandson. Are you satisfied?"
Sarah responds, "Well... He WAS wearing a hat."
Proverbs as finished by a fourth grade class:
There is nothing new... under a rock.
A journey of a thousand miles begins with... a private jet.
If you can't stand the heat... try Antarctica.
Better late than... absent.
Laugh, and the world laughs with you. Cry, and... then blow your nose.
A bird in the hand is... better than a woodpecker on your head.
Early to bed, early to rise... and you will get the best cereal.
Don't burn your bridges... or you'll fall in the lake.
Haste makes... sweat.
A penny saved... is not a lot.
A miss is as good as... a mister.
