Two little boys, ages 8 and 10, were excessively mischievous. They were

mischief occurred in their town, the two boys were probably involved. The

The preacher raised his voice even more and shook his finger in the boy's
face and bellowed, 'Where is God?'
The boy screamed and bolted from the room, ran directly home and dove into
his closet, slamming the door behind him. When his older brother found him
in the closet, he asked, 'What happened?'
The younger brother, gasping for breath, replied, 'We are in BIG trouble
this time,' 'GOD is missing, and they think we did it.'
