A little child shall lead thee...

At church I am called to work in with the children. I love how honest, sincere and yet curious they are. I always felt very blessed to be among them. They don't have the many hang ups that we adults have obtained throughout  the years. They are innocent and happy. For years I worked at a preschool, both just a regular one and then one that was for handicapped children. I loved my job, I loved being with those kids every day. I felt like they taught me more on a daily basis, than I taught them. Today once again at church I watched the children. They are too cute. So tonight I am going to share with you a couple of cute stories about kids that will hopefully bring a smile to your face. I also hope that it will make you want to take time out to spend the day with a child, then... you will really see the world for what it truly is. Good night dear friends.

Little John the Baptist

Matt. 18:4-5
"Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, greatest in the kingdom of heaven.
And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me. "

Johnny's Mother looked out the window and noticed Him "playing church" with their cat.

He had the cat sitting quietly and he was preaching to it.
She smiled and went about her work.
A while later she heard loud meowing and hissing
and ran back to the open window to see Johnny baptizing the cat in a tub of water.
She called out, "Johnny, stop that! The cat is afraid of water!"
Johnny looked up at her and said,
"He should have thought about that before he joined my church."


At a church dinner, there was a pile of apples on one end of the table with a sign that read, TAKE ONLY ONE APPLE, PLEASE. GOD IS WATCHING.

On the other end of the table was a pile of cookies where a youth had placed a sing saying , TAKE ALL THE COOKIES YOU WANT. GOD IS WATCHING THE APPLES!
