    There was a preacher whose wife was expecting a baby so he
    went to the congregation and asked for a raise. After much consideration
    and discussion, they passed a rule that whenever the preacher's family
    expanded, so would his paycheck.

    After 6 children, this started to get expensive and the congregation
    decided to hold another meeting to discuss the preacher's salary. There
    was much yelling and bickering about how much the clergyman's additional
    children were costing the church.

    Finally, the Preacher got up and spoke to the crowd, "Children are a gift from God,"
    he said.

    Silence fell on the congregation.

    In the back of the room, a little old lady stood up and in her frail voice
    said, "Rain is also a gift from God, but when we get too much,we wear

    And the congregation said, "Amen.";P ;f
