We say the darnedest things sometimes.
People have been coming to the wise man, complaining about the same problems every time. One day he told them a joke, and everyone roared in laughter.
After a couple of minutes, he told them the same joke and only a few of them smiled. When he told the same joke for a third time no one laughed anymore.
The wise man smiled and said:
“You can’t laugh at the same joke over and over. So why are you always crying about the same problem?
Moral of the story:
Worrying won’t solve your problems, it’ll just waste your time and energy.
A woman went to the Doctor’s office where she was seen by one of the new doctors, but after about four minutes in the examination room, she burst out, screaming as she ran down the hall.
An older doctor stopped her and asked what the problem was, and she told her story.
After listening, he had her sit down and told her to go relax in another room.
The older doctor marched down the hallway to the back where the first doctor was and demanded, “ what’s the matter with you? Mrs. Terry is 63 years old, she has two grown children and several grandchildren, and you told her she was pregnant?”
The new doctor continued to write on his clipboard and without looking up said, “Does she still have the hiccups?”
Some of them also were appointed to oversee the vessels, and all the instruments of the sanctuary, and the fine flour, and the wine, and the oil, and the frankincense, and the spices.

And that they should publish and proclaim in all their cities, and in Jerusalem, saying, Go forth unto the mount, and fetch olive branches, and pine branches, and myrtle branches, and palm branches, and branches of thick trees, to make booths, as it is written.
