The good & the bad

One day God was looking down at earth and saw all of the rascally behavior that was going on.
So he called one of his angels to go to earth for a time.

When he returned, he told God, "Yes, it is bad on Earth; 95% are misbehaving and only 5% are not."
God thought for a moment and said, "Maybe I had better send down another angel to get a second opinion."

So God called another angel and sent him to earth for a time, too. When the angel returned he went to God and said, "Yes, it's true.
The earth is in decline; 95% are misbehaving, but 5% are being good."

God was not pleased. So he decided to email the 5% who were good, because he wanted to encourage them, give them a little something to help them keep going.

Do you know what the email said?


Okay, just wondering. I didn't get one either....

That was not nice, RD, putting us all on the spot like that. I wonder what God really did say? Maybe he got my email address wrong? Dear me ..

Pushes halo up. I know what the note said. Do you want to know?

Oops. I think my halo just dropped down around my ankles for lying.

Oh, I forgot, I do think your page is delightful to read. Like the 'ambiance' it now has.
