Missed Palm Sunday

Little Johnny misses the Palm Sunday service


It was Palm Sunday and, because of a sore throat, five-year-old Little Johnny stayed home from Church with a sitter. When the family returned home, they were carrying several palm branches.

Little Johnny asked what they were for.

“People held them over Jesus’ head as he walked by.”

“Wouldn’t you know it,” Little Johnny fumed, “The one Sunday I don’t go, He shows up!”
