One Sunday a minister told his congregation that the church needed some extra money as the drains had just fallen in
and asked his flock to prayerfully consider giving a little extra in the offering.
He said that whoever gave the most would be able to pick out three hymns of their choice. After the offering plates
were passed, the pastor glanced down and noticed that someone had placed a £300 cheque 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 four handsomest men in the building and said,
"I'll take him and him and him."
