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


A little girl, dressed in her Sunday best, was runningas fast as she could,
trying not to be late for Bible class.As she ran she prayed,'Dear Lord, please don't let me be late! Dear Lord, please don't let me be late!'
While she was running and praying, she tripped on a curb and fell,
getting her clothes dirty and tearing her dress.She got up, brushed herself off,& started runningagain!
As she ran she once again began to pray,'Dear Lord, please don't let me be late...But pleasedon't shove me either!'

Alan is thinking about becoming a Muslim after he had to visit the local Mosque, in St Helier, for some business with the Imam. When the Imam came up to Alan he laid his hands on Alan's arm and said "By the will of Allah and the Prophet Muhammad you will walk today".

Alan told him that he was not paralysed. He only had a little gout occasionally. The Imam came back and laid his hands on Alan again, and looking skywards, repeated his mantra; "You will walk this day".

Once again Alan told him that there was nothing wrong with his legs. After the business meeting was over Alan left the Mosque and, to his surprise, his car was gone!
