FROM THE MOUTH OF BABES

A friend forwarded me this e-mail.  Quite a message!!


A father wanted to read a magazine but was being bothered by his little girl. She wanted to know what the United States (or put in any country!) looked like. Finally, 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 her 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, she 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 all of Jesus back where He belonged, then our country just came together.'

Sooo........ 

when we get Jesus back where He Belongs--
our country - yours and mine -  will come together.

What a great story. We can often learn a lot from children, if only we would listen.
