The most caring Child

Discussion in 'Humor' started by Dusty, Jan 29, 2008.

  1. The most caring Child

    Author and lecturer Leo Buscaglia once talked about a contest he was asked to judge. The purpose of the contest was to find the most caring child.

    The winner was:

    A four-year-old child, whose next door neighbor was an elderly gentleman, who had recently lost his wife. Upon seeing the man cry, the little boy went into the old gentleman's yard, climbed onto his lap, and just sat there.

    When his mother asked him what he had said to the neighbor, the

    little boy just said, 'Nothing, I just helped him cry.'


    Teacher Debbie Moon's first graders were discussing a picture of a family. One little boy in the picture had a different hair color than the other members. One of her students suggested that he was adopted.

    A little girl said, 'I know all about adoption, I was adopted..'

    'What does it mean to be adopted?', asked another child.

    'It means', said the girl, 'that you grew in your mommy's heart instead of her tummy!'


    On my way home one day, I stopped to watch a Little League base ball game that was being played in a park near my home. As I sat down behind the bench on the first-base line, I asked one of the boys what the score was.

    'We're behind 14 to nothing,' he answered with a smile.

    'Really,' I said. 'I have to say you don't look very discouraged.'

    'Discouraged?', the boy asked with a puzzled look on his face...

    'Why should we be discouraged? We haven't been up to bat yet.'


    Whenever I'm disappointed with my spot in life, I stop and think

    about little Jamie Scott.

    Jamie was trying out for a part in the school play. His mother told me that he'd set his heart on being in it, though she feared he would not be chosen.

    On the day the parts were awarded, I went with her to collect him after school.. Jamie rushed up to her, eyes shining with pride and excitement. 'Guess what, Mom,' he shouted, and then said those words that will remain a lesson to me.....'I've been chosen to clap and cheer.'


    An eye witness account from New York City , on a cold day in December, some years ago: A little boy, about 10-years-old, was standing before a shoe store on the roadway, barefooted, peering through the window, and shivering with cold.

    A lady approached the young boy and said, 'My, but you're in such deep thought staring in that window!'

    'I was asking God to give me a pair of shoes, 'was the boy's reply

    The lady took him by the hand, went into the store, and asked the clerk to get half a dozen pairs of socks for the boy. She then asked if he could give her a basin of water and a towel. He quickly brought them to her.

    She took the little fellow to the back part of the store and, removing her gloves, knelt down, washed his little feet, and dried them with the towel.

    By this time, the clerk had returned with the socks. Placing a pairupon the boy's feet, she purchased him a pair of shoes.

    She tied up the remaining pairs of socks and gave them to him.. She patted him on the head and said, 'No doubt, you will be more comfortable now.'

    As she turned to go, the astonished kid caught her by the hand, and looking up into her face, with tears in his eyes, asked her .

    'Are you God's wife?'



    Hope this put a smile on your face it sure did mine

  2. I just have to tell you this story as I read the last story about the little boy and the shoes.

    One of the years that I was on a missions trip in Dominican Republic the missionary had several young boys that came every day to help him. Towards the last of our trip I was wearing these running shoes that I really liked and they were quite different. I felt led to give these shoes away to one of the boys .... but then said .... by Lord these are boys .... they wouldn't want a pair of girls shoes. But the Lord was tugging at my heart strings and I finally approached one of the boys .... his name was Aldo. He was thrilled and the shoes fit him perfectly. And he told the missionary ( cause my Spanish was not that good) , he was asking God for a pair of running shoes and Barbara gave him a pair. Well , my friends that touched my heart more than anything this world can give. You will never know , so to be obedient to God is always the best policy.
