The morning's sermon was "Forgive Your Enemies." Toward the end of the service, the Minister asked, "How many of you have forgiven your enemies?"

80% of the congregation held up their hands.

The Minister then asked how many were willing to forgive their enemies.

This time all responded, except one small, elderly lady in the back of the church.

"Mrs. Jones, are you not willing to forgive your enemies?" the Minister asked.

"I don't have any," she replied, smiling sweetly.

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

"Ninety-eight," she replied.

"Oh, Mrs. Jones. Would you please come down in front and tell us all how a person can live ninety-eight years and not have an enemy in the world."

The little sweetheart of a lady tottered down the aisle,

faced the congregation and said,

"It's not hard to understand.

I simply outlived the bitches!"
