I Believe!!

Ma and Pa Kettle were sitting on the front porch rocking away listening to Reverend Ike on the radio. The Rev said, "Place your left hand on the part of your body you want healed, raise your right hand in the air and say, "I Believe, I Believe!!" and you shall be healed."

Well, Ma placed her left hand inside her blouse over her tired old heart and lungs and raised her right hand in the air and shouted, "I Believe, I Believe!!!!!"

Meanwhile Pa just looked at her like she was some kind of lunatic until Ma started breathing nice and easy without her old wheeze, and started rocking twice as fast as before and a wonderful color came back into her cheeks!

Pa shrugged his shoulders, shoved his left hand down the front of his pants, started to raise his right hand in the air, when Ma said "Pa, the Reverend said, 'Heal', not raise the dead."
