Sunday Smile

A ten-year-old boy was failing math. His parents tried everything from tutors to hypnosis; but to no avail. Finally, at the insistence of a family friend, they decided to enroll their son in a private Catholic school. After the first day, the boy's parents were surprised when he walked in after school with a stern, focused and very determined expression on his face.

He went straight past them, right to his room and quietly closed the door. For nearly two hours he toiled away in his room with math books strewn about his desk and the surrounding floor. He emerged long enough to eat, and after quickly cleaning his plate, went straight back to his room, closed the door and worked feverishly at his studies until bedtime.

This pattern of behavior continued until it was time for the first quarter's report card. The boy walked in with it unopened, laid it on the dinner table and went straight to his room.
Cautiously, his mother opened it and, to her amazement, she saw a large red 'A' under the subject of Math. Overjoyed, she and her husband rushed into their son's room, thrilled at His remarkable progress.

'Was it the nuns that did it?' the father asked. The boy shook his head and said 'No.'

'Was it the one-to-one tutoring? The peer-mentoring?' 'No.'

'The textbooks? The teachers? The curriculum?'

'No', said the son. 'On that first day, when I walked in the front door and saw that guy nailed to the plus sign, I KNEW they were serious! "

Cute... God works his wonders in mysterious ways, I guess... :-)
lol, good one
Can I hear an Amen? :D
Have a Happy Sunday....Nice.
Lol! That's funny!

Thanks for commenting on my site before. Btw, futsal is indoor soccer. I already wrote than on my blog lots of times before so I figured it would be annoying if I repeated myself again when it's the same people who are reading my blog anyway. I wasn't expecting any new comer.
LOL, now that was a good joke to brighten up my morning Abeni! Have a great day!!
That's funny! :)
That was funny as hell.
Amen to the Father, Amen to the Son!

Good one.

Maybe I should have looked around the examination room for a crucifix when I was taking M 080 at the UWI for inspiration.... 'till this day Maths is the only final exam I ever failed at a scourge on my record...anyhow, how much math do I use in medicine? God does work in mysterious ways! Dr. D.
