RE: The Parable of the Lost Coin

The old lady had 10 silver coins in a jar every day she took them out and looked at them. But one day 1 went missing! She looked everywhere she looked in the ashes the pots and pans under the doors and lastly she looked in her pockets. She thought it was hopeless and she went and sat down. She saw a reflection of the light under the table so she looked under and saw it was her coin! She swore she looked there but she didn’t care she told her neighbours to come round for a party to celebrate her finding her coin.
