Lovely old lady

98 and no enemies: a touching human story

Toward the end of Sunday service, the Minister asked, “How many of you have forgiven your enemies?”
Eighty per cent held up their hands.

The Minister then repeated his question. All responded this time, except one small elderly lady.
“Mrs. Neely? Are you not willing to forgive your enemies?”
“I don’t have any,” she replied, smiling sweetly.
“Mrs. Neely, that is very unusual. How old are you?”
“Ninety-eight,” she replied. The congregation stood up and clapped their hands.
“Oh, Mrs. Neely, would you please come down in front & tell us all how a person can live ninety-eight years
and not have an enemy in the world?”

The little old lady tottered down the aisle, faced the congregation, and said,

“I outlived the b’stards.”
