There were five houses of religion in a smalltown:
The Presbyterian Church.
The BaptistChurch .
The MethodistChurch .
The Catholic Church.
The Jewish Synagogue.
Each church and Synagogue was overrun with pesky squirrels.
One day, the Presbyterian Church called a meeting to decide what to do about the squirrels. After much prayer and consideration they determined that the squirrels were predestined to be there and they shouldn’t interfere with God’s divine will.
InThe BAPTISTCHURCH the squirrels had taken up habitation in the baptistery. The deacons met and decided to put a cover on the baptistery and drown the squirrels in it. The squirrels escaped somehow and there were twice as many there the next week
The MethodistChurch got together and decided that they were not in a position to harm any of God’s creation. So, they humanely trapped the Squirrels and set them free a few miles outside of town. Three days later, the squirrels were back.
But — The Catholic Church came up with the best and most effective solution. They baptized the squirrels and registered them as members of the church.
Now they only see them on Christmas, Ash Wednesday, Palm Sunday and Easter.
Not much was heard about the Jewish Synagogue, but they took one squirrel and had a short service with him called for a circumcision and they haven’t seen a squirrel on the property since.
For all who appreciate the outdoors …. the rarely photographed South Florida Squirrel.
Life is too short for drama and petty things, so kiss slowly, laugh insanely, love truly and forgive quickly.
