God is one in Three
I am one in me
And tho' I be so wee
In His eyes I see
My glimpse of eternity.
I would like to thank all of you who went to Tamara's Blog site yesterday to wish her well as she copes with having a heart attack and all that ensues from it physically as well as emotionally now...if anyone hasn't stopped in yet, please give her a note of cheer. Guess I should also tell you what that did for me...as soon as I saw comments coming in to her last post I started bawling like a baby, called Michael at work and scared him half to death!!! So I immediately said, between sobs (how do the movie stars manage to talk and cry in movies????...that stumps me!) that it's okay, they are happy, happy tears. All of your goodness and caring just overwhelms me and even chokes me up right now!

Shortly after, along came a man who had recently completed some studies at a local university. Feeling himself very enlightened in the ways of truth and very eager to show this enlightenment, he asked the boy about the source of his joy.
"Hey" asked the boy in return with a bright laugh, "Don't you have any idea what God is able to do? I just read that God opened up the waves of the Red Sea and led the whole nation of Israel right through the middle."
The enlightened man laughed lightly, sat down next to the boy and, with an air of superiority, began to try to open his eyes to the "realities" of the miracles of the Bible. "That can all be very easily explained. Modern scholarship has shown that the Red Sea in that area was only 10-inches deep at that time. It was no problem or miracle for the Israelites to wade across."
The boy was stumped. His eyes wandered from the man back to the Bible laying open in his lap. The man, content that he had enlightened a poor, naive young person to the finer points of scientific insight, turned to go. Scarcely had he taken two steps when the boy began to rejoice and praise louder than before. The man turned, with a frown, to ask the reason for this resumed jubilation.
"Wow!" exclaimed the boy happily, "God is greater than I thought! Not only did He lead the whole nation of Israel through the Red Sea, He topped it off by drowning the whole Egyptian army in 10 inches of water!"
The Historical Flight
Terri asked her Sunday School class to draw pictures of their favorite Bible stories. She was puzzled by Kyle's picture, which showed four people on an airplane, so she asked him which story it was meant to represent.
"The flight to Egypt," said Kyle.
"I see ... And that must be Mary, Joseph, and Baby Jesus," Ms. Terri said. "
But who's the fourth person?"
"Oh, that's Pontius-the Pilot.
One Easter Sunday morning as the pastor was preaching a children's sermon, he reached into his bag of props and pulled out an egg. He pointed at the egg and asked the children, "
What's in here?"
"I know, I know!" a little boy exclaimed, "pantyhose!"
The children were lined up in the cafeteria of a Catholic elementary school for lunch. At the head of the table was a large tray of apples. A nun lettered a note and posted it on the apple tray: "Take only ONE. God is watching."
Moving along the lunch line, at the other end was a large tray of chocolate chip cookies. A girl wrote a note, which she put next to the tray of cookies, "Take all you want. God is watching the apples."
