Wisdom From a Six Year Old Girl

“FOR WE WALK BY FAITH, NOT BY SIGHT”

One day a 6 year old girl was sitting in a classroom. The teacher was going to explain evolution to the children. The teacher asked a little boy.
TEACHER: Tommy do you see the tree outside?
TOMMY: Yes.
TEACHER: Tommy, do you see the grass outside?
TOMMY: Yes.
TEACHER: Go outside and look up and see if you can see the sky.
TOMMY: Okay. (He returned a few minutes later) Yes, I saw the sky.
TEACHER: Did you see God?
TOMMY: No.
TEACHER: That’s my point. We can’t see God because he isn’t there. He doesn’t exist.

A little girl spoke up and wanted to ask the boy some questions. The teacher agreed and the little girl asked the boy:
LITTLE GIRL: Tommy, do you see the tree outside?
TOMMY: Yes.
LITTLE GIRL: Tommy do you see the grass outside?
TOMMY: Yessssss (getting tired of the questions by this time).
LITTLE GIRL: Did you see the sky?
TOMMY: Yessssss
LITTLE GIRL: Tommy, do you see the teacher?
TOMMY: Yes
LITTLE GIRL: Do you see her brain?
TOMMY: No
LITTLE GIRL: Then according to what we were taught today in school, she must not have one!

God’s cake

Sometimes we wonder,
‘What did I do to deserve this?’ or
‘Why did God have to do this to me?’

Here is a wonderful explanation!
A daughter is telling her Mother how everything
is going wrong, she’s failing algebra, her boyfriend
broke up with her and her best friend is moving away.

Meanwhile, her Mother is baking a cake and
asks her daughter if she would like a snack, and the
daughter says, ‘Absolutely Mom, I love your cake.’
‘Here, have some cooking oil,’ her Mother offers.
‘Yuck’ says her daughter.
‘How about a couple raw eggs?’ ‘Gross, Mom!’
‘Would you like some flour then?
Or maybe baking soda?’

‘Mom, those are all yucky!’
To which the mother replies:
‘Yes, all those things seem bad all by themselves.
But when they are put together in the
right way, they make a wonderfully delicious cake! ‘
God works the same way. Many times we wonder why
He would let us go through such bad and difficult
times. But God knows that when He puts these things
all in His order, they always work for good! We just
have to trust Him and, eventually, they will all
make something wonderful!

God is crazy about you.
He sends you flowers every spring and
a sunrise every morning.
Whenever you want to talk, He’ll listen.
He can live anywhere in the universe,
and He chose your heart.
If you like this, send this on
to the people you really care about.

Life may not be the party we hoped for,

but while we are
here we might as well dance!

What Happens in Heaven When We Pray?

I dreamt  that I went to Heaven and an angel was showing  me around. We walked side-by-side inside a large  workroom filled with angels. My angel guide  stopped in front of the first section and said,  ‘ This is the Receiving Section. Here, all  petitions to God said in prayer are  received.

I  looked around in this area, and it was terribly  busy with so many angels sorting out petitions  written on voluminous paper sheets and scraps  from people all over the  world.

Then we  moved on down a long corridor until we reached  the second section.

The  angel then said to me, “This is the Packaging  and Delivery Section. Here, the graces and  blessings the people asked for are processed and  delivered to the living persons who asked for  them.” I noticed again how busy it was there.  There were many angels working hard at that  station, since so many blessings had been  requested and were being packaged for delivery  to Earth.

Finally  at the farthest end of the long corridor we  stopped at the door of a very small station. To  my great surprise, only one angel was seated  there, idly doing nothing. “This is the  Acknowledgment Section, my angel friend  quietly admitted to me. He seemed embarrassed.”   How is it that there is no work going on  here? ‘ I asked.

“So  sad,” the angel sighed.  “After people  receive the blessings that they asked for, very  few send back  acknowledgments”

“How  does one acknowledge God’s blessings? ” I  asked..

“Simple,”  the angel answered. Just say, “Thank you,  Lord. ”

“What  blessings should they acknowledge?”  I  asked.

“If you  have food in the refrigerator, clothes on your  back, a roof overhead and a place to sleep you  are richer than 75% of this world. If you have  money in the bank, in your wallet, and spare  change in a dish, you are among the top 8% of  the world’s wealthy. ”

“And if  you get this on your own computer, you are part  of the 1% in the world who has that  opportunity.”

“If you  woke up this morning with more health than  illness .. You are more blessed than the many  who will not even survive this  day. ”

“If you  have never experienced the fear in battle, the  loneliness of imprisonment, the agony of  torture, or the pangs of starvation … You are  ahead of 700 million people in the  world.”

“If you  can attend a church without the fear of  harassment, arrest, torture or death you are  envied by, and more blessed than, three billion  people in the world.”

“If  your parents are still alive and still married  …you are very rare.”

“If you  can hold your head up and smile, you are not the  norm, you’re unique to all those in doubt and  despair…….”

Ok,  what now? How can I start?

If you  can read this message, you just received a  double blessing in that someone was thinking of  you as very special and you are more blessed  than over two billion people in the world who  cannot read at all.

Have a  good day, count your blessings, and  if you care to, pass this along to remind everyone else how blessed we all are.
