Pecans in the Cemetery

Monday, July 12, 2010

This is a nice story that I've read when I was in the church during the sermon of the speaker. This story is actuallr printed on the program. It's a funny story that really made me smile. Here's the story...

On the outskirts of a small town, there was a big old pecan tree just inside the cemetery fence. One day, two boys filled up a bucketful of nuts and sat down by the tree. out of the sight, and begam dividing the nuts. "One for you, one for me" said one boy.Several dropped and rolled down toward the fence. Another boy came riding along the road on his bicycle. As he passed, he thoughthe heard voices from inside the cemetery. He slowed down to investigate. Sure enough, he heard, "One for you , one for me. One for you, one for me." He just new what it was. He jumped back on his bike and rode off. Just around the bend he met an old man with a cane, hobbling along. "Come here quick," said the boy. "You won't believe what
I heard!" Satan and the Lord are down at the cemetery dividing up the souls." The man said, "Beat it kid, can't you see it's hard for me to walk." When  the boy insisted though, the man haobbled to the cemetery. Standing by the fence they heard, "One for you, one for me. One for you, one for me..." The old man whispered, "Boy, you've beer tellin' the truth. Let's see if we can see the Lord." Shaking with fear, they peered through the fence, yet were still unable to see anything. The old man and the boygripped the wrought iron bar of the fence tighter and tighter as they tried to get a glimpes of the Lord. At last they heard, "One for you, one for me. That's all. Now let's go get those nuts by the fence and we'll be done.
