I follow the blog of a very nice Aussie lady. She posted this on a recent blog and I think the “little story” is cute. It shows a need and belief in God all in one little scenario. The story involves an elderly lady and someone in need. I do not mean any offense with the joke. I’m elderly myself and don’t usually like references to “old age.” Folks that’s anyone past 65 years old in my book.
I’m not in the habit of reblogging and I think this is the first one that I’ve done. I’ve used things from You Tube but those are not reblogs. I prefer my own posts but this one made me smile and I really needed to find some humor in life these past few months.
I changed one word. It’s still a good story.

A Christmas Joke (author unknown)
There was a man who worked for the Post Office whose job was to process all the mail that had illegible addresses.
One day, a letter came addressed in a shaky handwriting to God with no actual address. He thought he should open it to see what it was about. The letter read
I am an 83 year old widow, living on a very small pension. Yesterday someone stole my purse. It had £100 in it, which was all the money I had until my next pension payment.
Next Sunday is Christmas, and I had invited two of my friends over for dinner. Without that money, I have nothing to buy food with, have no family to turn to, and you are my only hope…
Can you please help me?
The postal worker was touched. He showed the letter to all the other workers. Each one dug into his or her wallet and came up with a few pounds.
By the time he made the rounds, he had collected £96 which they put into an envelope and sent to the woman.
The rest of the day, all the workers felt a warm glow thinking of Edna and the dinner she would be able to share with her friends.
Christmas came and went.
A few days later, another letter came from the same old lady to God.
All the workers gathered around while the letter was opened.
How can I ever thank you enough for what you did for me?
Because of your gift of love, I was able to fix a glorious dinner for my friends. We had a very nice day and I told my friends of your wonderful gift.
By the way, there was £4 missing………..
I think it might have been those buzzards at the post office!!!
