Something Cute...

Thursday, February 12, 2009

Here's something I read on another blog yesterday. I really enjoyed Tami's blog, Aunt Mimi's Creation so drop over and take a look too!

A father wanted to read a magazine, but was being bothered by his little girl, Shelby.

She wanted to know what the United States looked like, so he tore a sheet out of his new magazine on which was printed the map of the country.

Tearing it into small pieces, he gave it to Shelby, and said, "Go into the other room and see if you can put this together. This will show you our whole country today."

After a few minutes, Shelby returned and handed him the map, correctly fitted and taped together. The father was surprised and asked how she had finished so quickly.

"Oh," she said, "On the other side of the paper is a picture of Jesus. When I got Jesus back where He belonged, then our country just came together."

If only it was that simple, huh? Enjoy your day!

Also, if you could help me out!!! Do you like the "February" graphic on my blog? I found it on some one's blog, can't remember who! Her blog was great, had lots of free graphics to copy and lots of hints for bloggers. I found her through one of YOUR blogs. She's a follower to someone who follows me. But for the life of me I can't remember where! She wrote her entries in an Irish brogue. So if you know who she is, please let me know...she had great tips that I want to check out!! Thanks!

  9. What a super-sweet story Lois - out of the mouths of babes! And isn't it scary how little ones seem to be able to outwit us when we are trying to short-change them! It is almost as if on some level they realise that we are not giving them 100% and find a way to get in by the back door! Hope you have a great evening! Blessings to you all!

  10. I've heard the puzzle story before. It is a great illustration. If people would just look to Jesus they could put a lot of things back together in their lives.

  13. Forgot to comment on your post today.
    Wouldn't it be nice if everyone felt the same way about putting Jesus back in their lives.

    Love the February widget too.
