God's Wife

Author and lecturer Leo Buscaglia once

talked about a contest he was asked to judge.

The purpose of the

contest was to find the most caring child.

 

    The winner was:

 

  A four-year-old child, whose next door

neighbor was an elderly gentleman, who had recently lost his

wife. Upon seeing the man cry, the little boy went into the old

gentleman's yard, climbed onto his lap, and just sat there.

   When his mother asked him what he had

said to the neighbor, the little boy just said, 'Nothing, I just

helped him cry.'

  Teacher Debbie Moon's first graders were

discussing a picture of a family. One little boy in the picture

had a different hair color than the other members. One of her

students suggested that he was adopted.

   A little girl said, 'I know all about

adoption, I was adopted..'

 

   'What does it mean to be adopted?', asked

  another child.

 

     'It means', said the girl, 'that you grew

in your mommy's heart instead of her tummy!'

      On my way home one day, I stopped to

watch a Little League base ball game that was being played in a

park near my home. As I sat down behind the bench on the first-

base line, I asked one of the boys what the score was

    'We're behind 14 to nothing,' he answered

with a smile.

 

  'Really,' I said. 'I have to say you

don't look very discouraged.'

 

  'Discouraged?', the boy asked with a

puzzled look on his face...

 

'Why should we be discouraged? We haven't

been up to bat yet.'

Whenever I'm disappointed with my spot

in life, I stop and think about little Jamie Scott.

 

    Jamie was trying out for a part in the

school play. His mother told me that he'd set his heart on being

in it, though she feared he would not be chosen.

 

        On the day the parts were awarded, I went

with her to collect him after school. Jamie rushed up to her,

eyes shining with pride and excitement.  'Guess what, Mom,' he

shouted, and then said those words that will remain a lesson to

me....'I've been chosen to clap and cheer.'

   An eye witness account from New York

City , on a cold day in December,

some years ago: A little boy,

about 10-years-old, was standing before a shoe store on the

roadway, barefooted, peering through the window, and shivering

with cold.

 

   A lady approached the young boy and said,

  'My, but you're in such deep thought staring in that window!'

 

'I was asking God to give me a pair of

shoes,'was the boy's reply.

 

   The lady took him by the hand, went into

  the store, and asked the clerk to get half a dozen pairs of socks

for the boy. She then asked if he could give her a basin of water

and a towel. He quickly brought them to her.

 

She took the little fellow to the back

part of the store and, removing her gloves, knelt down, washed

his little feet, and dried them with the towel.

 

By this time, the clerk had returned with

the socks.. Placing a pair upon the boy's feet, she purchased him

a pair of shoes..

 

      She tied up the remaining pairs of socks

and gave them to him.. She patted him on the head and said, 'No

doubt, you will be more comfortable now.'

 

   As she turned to go, the astonished kid

caught her by the hand, and looking up into her face, with tears

in his eyes, asked her.

 

  'Are you God's wife?'

SEND TO ALL WHO LOVE AND CARE FOR CHILDREN.

  Hope this put a smile on your face it

sure did mine.
