On the outskirts of a small town, there was a big, old pecan tree just

inside the cemetery fence.. One day, two boys filled up a bucketful of nuts

and sat down by the tree, out of sight, and began dividing the nuts. “One

for you, one for me. One for you, one for me,” said one boy. Several dropped

and rolled down toward the fence. Another boy came riding along the road on

his bicycle. As he passed, he thought he heard voices from inside the

cemetery. He slowed down to investigate. Sure enough, he heard, “One for

you, one for me. One for you, one for me.” He just knew what it was. He

jumped back on his bike and rode off. Just around the bend he met an old

man with a cane, hobbling along.

 

“Come here quick,” said the boy, “you won’t believe what I heard! Satan and

the Lord are down at the cemetery dividing up the souls.”

 

The man said, “Beat it kid, can’t you see it’s hard for me to walk.”

 

When the boy insisted though, the man hobbled to the cemetery. Standing by

the fence they heard, “One for you, one for me. One for you, one for me…”

The old man whispered, “Boy, you’ve been tellin’ the truth. Let’s see if we

can see the Lord.” Shaking with fear, they peered through the fence, yet

were still unable to see anything.The old man and the boy gripped the

wrought iron bars of the fence tighter and tighter as they tried to get a

glimpse of the Lord.

 

 

At last they heard, “One for you, one for me. That’s all. Now let’s go get

those nuts by the fence and we’ll be done.” They say the old man made it

back to town a full 5 minutes ahead of the boy on the bike.
