Alarmed by the old fellow’s absence after so many years of faithful attendance the pastor went to see him.
He found him in excellent health, so the pastor asked, “How come after all these years we don’t see you at services anymore?”
The old man looked around and lowered his voice.
I’ll tell you, Pastor,” he whispered.
“When I got to be 90 I expected God to take me any day. But then I got to be 95, then 100, then 105.
So I figured that God is very busy and must have forgotten about me ….. and I don’t want to remind Him.”
