The Christian and the Atheist

There was a Christian lady who lived next door to an atheist. 
Everyday, when the lady prayed, the atheist guy could hear and he
thought to himself, "She sure is crazy, praying all the time like that. 
Doesn't she know there isn't a God?"

Many times while she was praying, he would go to her house and harass
her, saying "Lady, why do you pray all the time? Don't you know there is
no God?"

But she kept on praying. One day, she ran out of groceries. As usual, 
she was praying to the Lord explaining her situation and thanking Him for
what He was going to do.

AS USUAL, the atheist heard her praying and thought to himself. "Humph
. . . I'll fix her."

He went to the grocery store, bought a whole bunch of groceries, took
them to her house, dropped them off on the front porch, rang the doorbell
and then hid in the bushes to see what she would do.

When she opened the door and saw the groceries, she began to praise
the Lord with all her heart, jumping, singing and shouting' everywhere! 
The atheist then jumped out of the bushes and told her, "You ole' 
crazy lady, God didn't buy you those groceries, I bought those
groceries!"

Well, she broke out and started running down the street, shouting and
praising the Lord.

When he finally caught up with her, he asked what her problem was . . 
She said, "I knew the Lord would provide me with some groceries, but I
didn't know he was going to make the devil pay for them!"
