much hair all over.
I keep waiting for Spring, but it never come yet. Don’t forget.
Did you mean for giraffes to look like that or was it an accident?
Instead of letting people die and having to make new ones, why don’t
you just keep the old ones you got now?
You don’t have to worry about me. I always look both ways.
I went to this wedding and they kissed right in church. Is that

In Bible times, did they really talk that fancy?
I think about you sometimes even when I’m not praying.
I am Amearican, what are you?
I bet it is very hard for you to love all of everybody in the whole
world. There are only 4 people in our family and I can never do
Thank you for the baby brother, but what I prayed for was a puppy.

Maybe Cain and Abel would not kill each other so much if they had
their own rooms. It works with my brother.

Way Kids See It
week, I took my children to a restaurant.
My six-year-old son asked if he could say grace. As we bowed our
heads he said, "God is good, God is great. Thank you for the
food, and I would even thank you more if Mom gets us ice cream for
dessert. And Liberty and justice for all! Amen!"
Along with the laughter from the other customers nearby, I heard
a woman remark, "That's what's wrong with this country. Kids
today don't even know how to pray. Asking God for ice cream! Why,
Hearing this, my son burst into tears and asked me, "Did I
do it wrong? Is God mad at me?"
As I held him and assured him that he had done a terrific job, and
God was certainly not mad at him, an elderly gentleman approached
He winked at my son and said, "I happen to know that God thought
that was a great prayer."
"Really?" my son asked.
"Cross my heart," the man replied.
Then, in a theatrical whisper, he added (indicating the woman whose
remark had started this whole thing), "Too bad she never asks
God for ice cream ... A little ice cream is good for the soul sometimes."
Naturally, I bought my kids ice cream at the end of the meal. My
son stared at his for a moment, and then did something I will remember
the rest of my life.
He picked up his sundae, and without a word, walked over and placed
it in front of the woman. With a big smile he told her, "Here,
this is for you. Ice cream is good for the soul sometimes; and my
soul is good already." -- See To serve is to succeed.
