Overheard at Table 1: A Prayer in Spanish

Husband: The pastor wants us to give the announcements on Sunday.  You give 'em and I'll say a prayer for the offerings.

Wife: OK, write down the prayer and I'll translate it into Spanish and you can practice.  

Husband: OK.  [writes]

    Dear Lord, please bless these tithes and offerings.  Let them be used to do Your work in a world that         needs to hear Your word.  Remind us that these offerings are only returning to You a portion of Your         blessings to us.   In Jesus' name, Amen.

    [slides it to wife]

Wife: [looks at it ... writes]

    Padre Santo, te agradecemos por un día más de vida.  Gracias por permitirnos estar reunidos para                 alabarte y escuchar tú palabra.  bendice estas ofrendas y multiplicalas para tu servicio en el nombre de      tú hijo Jesus.  Amen!

    [slides it back to husband]

Husband: [reads] ... This is not what I said.

Wife: I know.  It's better.
