Enemies

The minister asked the congregation to raise their hands if they had forgiven their enemies. About half held up their hands.

He then repeated his question. Now about 80 percent held up their hands. He repeated his question one more time.

All responded, except one elderly lady.

"Mrs. Henry, are you not willing to forgive your enemies?"

"I don't have any."

"Mrs. Henry, that is very unusual. How old are you?"

"Ninety-three." she replied.

"Mrs. Henry, please come down in front and tell the congregation how a person cannot have an enemy in the world?"

The little sweetheart of a lady tottered down the aisle, turned to the congregation and said, "I outlived the bitches" !
