Our Country Today - Thought for the Day...

This little story came to me by way of e-mail and I decided this being Sunday I would share it with my readers... A father wanted to read a magazine but was being bothered by his little girl, Shelby. She wanted to know what the United States 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 Shelby and said, 'Go into the other room and see if you can put this together. This will show you our whole country today.' The author and finisher of our faith. After a few minutes, Shelby 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..'

Mel - I shouldn't classify it as only being something for a Sunday but it is good for everyday. ;)

If only people would realize that! Life would take on a whole different meaning. One of my favorites. Thanks.

Reminds me of-out of the mouth of babes-or a little child shall lead them. Nice.

Amen! And oh so true. If all of us in this country returned to our roots, and the principles this country was founded on, we would be in much better shape.
