recently came upon
a farmer working in his field. Being concerned about
the farmer's soul
the preacher asked the man, "Are you laboring in
the vineyard of the
Lord my good man?"

the preacher and continuing his work the farmer

wife. She don't get out much and she'll wanna go

The farmer's son was returning from the market

with the crate of chicken's his father had entrusted to him, when
of a sudden the box fell and broke open. Chickens scurried off
different directions, but the determined boy walked all over the

neighborhood scooping up the wayward birds and returning them to
the repaired
crate. Hoping he had found them all, the boy reluctantly
returned home,
expecting the worst.

"Pa, the chickens got
loose," the boy confessed sadly, "but I
managed to find all twelve of

There was a farmer who
had a lot of live
stock. He had cows, horses, chickens, pigs, and bulls.
One day a
terrible twister came and the man and his family were only
saved by
throwing themselves in the nearest ditch. After it was all over,
looked up to see that the house was gone. Saddened by the loss, he

went out to see if any of the animals had survived. The horses,

chickens, pigs, and cows were laid out flat but the bulls were standing! The

farmer was amazed and asked them, "How is it that all the other
