    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:

    1. 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.'


    2. 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!'

    3. On my way home one day, I stopped to
    watch a Little League baseball 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.'

    *********************** **********************

    4. 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.'


    5. 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?'


    Hope this put a smile on your face it

    Sure did mine!

    Those were all good, I just hope they keep the same outlook on life as they age,and don't get it warped by things that they will be exposed to as they grow

    She might not have been God's wife but I guarantee she wasn't a republican.

    KGun shooter, what are you trying to say? I'm a long way from being a rich person, financially that is, but that has nothing to do with caring and helping other people. An acquaintance had car problems and no money to pay for repairs and I gave them $1000.00 for a down payment on a car, a neighbor's wife was in the hospital 120 miles away so I gave them $300.00 for gas money and eating. I could go on but don't need too and no I didn't write any of this bragging. And I am a republican. Jackie B.

    kgun shooter...assuming you are a Democrat. How much do you think the "Occupy Wall Street" folks give to the poor?

    For that matter, the wealthy (and not so wealthy) citizens of the United States are the most generous people on the planet. We give more to more charities than all other countries combined. Republican or Democrat, rich or poor, we tend to give to those who are not as fortunate. Ever see the jars for needy folks in the 7-11 stores that are filled with coins and $1 bills? Neighbors helping neighbors. I find your comment about the lady buying shoes for a poor child in extremely poor taste and indicative of ignorance.
