There was this fellow who worked for the Post Office whose job it was to
process all the mail that had illegible addresses. One day a letter came
to his desk, addressed in a shaky handwriting to God. He thought, "Oh
boy, better open this one and see what it's all about." So he opened it
and read:-

"Dear God, I am an 83 year old widow living on a very small pension.
Yesterday someone stole my purse. It had $100.00 in it, which was all
the money I had until my next pension cheque. 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. I have no family to turn to, and you
are my only hope. Can you please help me?"

The postal worker was touched, and went around showing the letter to all
the others. Each of them dug into his wallet and came up with a few
dollars. By the time he made the rounds, he had collected $96.00, which
they put into an envelope and sent over to her. The rest of the day, all
the workers felt the warm glow of the kind thing they had done.
Christmas came and went. A few days later another letter came from the
old lady to God. All the workers gathered around while the letter was
opened. It read, "Dear God, 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 must have been those thieving bastards at the Post Office."
LOL, funny one.
*** woman...
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
funny! Emotion: smile
since she never sent a S.A.E to god, he took $4 from the $100 to pay for the postage from heaven
I've found it as very instructive.

We don't judge people. We never know the real situation: what they did why or what they had in their mind to do. Otherwise we can be like that woman.

I'm not sure I've explained my point clearly, but if you got one and know how to say it better, correct my english, PLEASE.

Thank you.

I've heard a story which was like that. But the speech was about a little boy, gloves and shoes. Postmen sent him shoes. And when the boy was writing back he wrote that the postmen had stolen the gloves.
Emotion: smile I have heard this one and I think it is great...

Maybe I should try to write a letter to God too? Emotion: smile Who knows perhaps kind postmen would send me some money)))))
