Two Little Boys ~
After a hardy rainstorm filled all the potholes in the streets and alleys, a young mother watched her two little boys playing in the puddle through her kitchen window.
The older of the two, a five year old lad, grabbed his sibling by the back of his head and shoved his face into the water hole.
As the boy recovered and stood laughing and dripping, the mother runs to the yard in a panic.
Why on earth did you do that to your little brother?!' she asks as she shook the older boy in anger.
'We were just playing 'church' mommy, ' he said.
'And I was just baptizing him..... In the name of the Father, the Son and in...the hole-he-goes.'
Are you lost?
A grandfather was out walking with his grandson one day. "How far do you think we are from home?" he asked the grandson.
The boy said, "Grandpa, I don't know."
The grandfather asked, "Well, where are you?"
Again the boy said, "I don't know."
Then the grandfather chuckled and said, "Sounds to me as if you are lost."
The young boy looked up at his grandfather and said, "I can't be lost, I'm with you."
Ultimately that is the answer to all that worries or threatens us too. We are never lost; we are always safe- safe in the truest sense of the word when we are with God.
