    A Choice of Hymns

    One Sunday a pastor told his congregation that the church needed
    some extra money and asked the people to prayerfully consider
    giving a little extra in the offering plate.

    He said that whoever gave the most would be able to pick out
    three hymns.

    After the offering plates were passed, the pastor glanced down
    and noticed that someone had placed a $1,000 bill in offering.
    He was so excited that he immediately shared his joy with his
    congregation and said he'd like to personally thank the person
    who placed the money in the plate.

    A very quiet, elderly, saintly lady all the way in the back
    shyly raised her hand. The pastor asked her to come to the
    front. Slowly she made her way to the pastor. He told her how
    wonderful it was that she gave so much and in thanksgiving asked
    her to pick out three hymns.

    Her eyes brightened as she looked over the congregation, pointed
    to the three handsomest men in the building and said,
    "I'll take him and him and him."
