CHILDREN CAN TELL STORIES WITH SUCH TRUTH
A teacher is explaining biology to her 3rd grade students. She says, “Human beings are the only animals that stutter.” A little girl raises her hand saying, “I had a kitty-cat who stuttered.”
The teacher, knowing how precious some of these stories could become. So, she asked the girl to describe the incident. “Well,” she began, “I was in the back yard with my kitty and the Rottweiler that lives next door got a running start and before we knew it, he jumped over the fence into our yard!”
The teacher exclaimed, “That must’ve been scary!” The little girl said, “It sure was. My kitty raised her back, went ‘Sssss!, Sssss!, Sssss!’ and before she could say ‘S#!t,’ the Rottweiler ate her!”
The teacher had to leave the room.
One Sunday morning, a young child was acting up during the worship service.
The parents did their best to maintain some sense of order in the pew but were losing the battle.
Finally, the father picked the little fellow up and walked sternly up the aisle on his way out.
Just before reaching the safety of the foyer, the little one called loudly to the congregation, “Pray for me! Pray for me!”
