Empty Life or Empty Tomb
David Cawston
Ecclesiastes 1:1-4


A man was blissfully driving along the highway, when he saw the Easter Bunny hopping across the middle of the road. He swerved to avoid hitting the Bunny, but unfortunately the rabbit jumped in front of his car and was hit. The basket of eggs went flying all over the place. Candy, too.

Miraculously, the Easter Bunny came to back life, jumped up, picked up the spilled eggs and candy, waved its paw at the two humans and hopped on down the road.

The woman turned the can around so that the man could read the label. It said: ‘‘Hair spray. Restores life to dead hair. Adds permanent wave.’’
