Sister Hissyfit Was Left Off The Invitation List

A pastor arranged for a gathering of the women’s auxiliary. It was to be a garden party on the church lawn, under the old oak. At the last moment, the morning of the party, the preacher discovered he left Sister Hissyfit off the invitation list. The pastor called the dear sister and begged forgiveness. I’m so sorry we didn’t catch this sooner, Mrs. Hissyfit, won’t you please come to the garden party, cajoled the pastor? Beggin’ won’t help now, preacher, said the offended Mrs. Hissfit, I’ve already prayed for rain.(Source unknown - Lou Nicholes, Missionary/Author).
