    A judge asked a woman who had been arrested for shoplifting a can of peaches why she had done it.

    “Because I was hungry, and I wanted something to eat,” she replied.

    The judge then asked how many peaches were in the can. She responded: “two.”

    “Then I’ll give you two days in jail,” the judge said.

    We had communion today. Louise Johnson sang “A Wonderful Life.” We had a wonderful fellowship meal after the service.

Winter jasmine is in bloom, among other late winter bloomers, and a few spring flowering trees have broken bud! Our current cool down is welcome just to slow things down a bit.
