  • Heart Warming...

    Come with me to a third grade classroom..... There is

    a nine-year-old kid sitting at his desk and all of a

    sudden, there is a puddle between his feet and the

    front of his pants are wet. He thinks his heart is

    going to stop because he cannot possibly imagine how

    this has happened. It's never happened before, and he

    knows that when the boys find out he will never hear

    the end of it. When the girls find out, they'll never

    speak to him again as long as he lives.



    The boy believes his heart is going to stop; he puts

    his head down and prays this prayer, "Dear God, this

    is an emergency! I need help now! Five minutes from

    now I'm dead meat."

    He looks up from his prayer and here comes the teacher

    with a look in her eyes that says he has been

    discovered.

    As the teacher is walking toward him, a classmate

    named Susie is carrying a goldfish bowl that is filled

    with water. Susie trips in front of the teacher and

    inexplicably dumps the bowl of water in the boy's lap.

    The boy pretends to be angry, but all the while is

    saying to himself, "Thank you, Lord! Thank you, Lord!"

    Now all of a sudden, instead of being the object of

    ridicule, the boy is the object of sympathy. The

    teacher rushes him downstairs and gives him gym shorts

    to put on while his pants dry out. All the other

    children are on their hands and knees cleaning up

    around his desk. The sympathy is wonderful. But as

    life would have it, the ridicule that should have been

    his has been transferred to someone else - Susie.

    She tries to help, but they tell her to get out.

    You've done enough, you klutz!"


    Finally, at the end of the day, as they are waiting

    for the bus, the boy walks over to Susie and whispers,

    "You did that on purpose, didn't you?" Susie whispers

    back, "I wet my pants once too."



    May God help us see the opportunities that are always

    around us to do good.
