PICK OUT THREE HYMNS

I heard about this pastor. He was raising money for a new sanctuary. He told his congregation one Sunday morning "If anybody will give $1000, you can pick out three hymns."

A little old lady in the back raised up her hand and said "Pastor, I’ll do it." He was so excited. He said "Thank you so much. Go ahead and pick out three hymns."

She looked over the congregation and said "All right. I’ll take him, him and him!"
