  Dad, I'm thinking of something...
One rainy afternoon I was driving along one of the main streets of town, taking those extra precautions necessary when the roads are wet and slick.

Suddenly, my daughter, Glorie, spoke up from
her relaxed position in her seat.
"Dad, I'm thinking of something." This announcement usually meant she had been
pondering some fact for a while, and was now ready to expound all that her six-year-old mind had discovered.

I was eager to hear....
"What are you thinking?" I asked....

"The rain!" She began; is like sin, and the windshield wipers are like God wiping our sins away.

After the chill bumps raced up my arms... I was able to respond; "That's really good, Glorie."

Then my curiosity broke in. How far would this little girl take this revelation?

Children’s are born with creative instinct, to express what is uniquely theirs -- it is their heritage to our world.



First Day of School
On the first day of school, about mid-morning, the kindergarten teacher said;
"If anyone has to go to the bathroom, hold up two fingers."

A little voice from the back of the room asked;
"How will that help?"

Never underestimate a child creativity and intelligence.

So I asked... "Do you notice how the rain keeps on coming? What does that tell you?"

Glorie didn't hesitate one moment with her answer: "We keep on sinning, and God keeps on forgiving us."

I will always remember this whenever I turn my wipers on. How can I ever forget... how a child imagination can be so refreshing effortless that; we must first endure some rain in order to see the rainbow.

Our children creativeness are like; Angels who lift us to our feet when our wings have trouble remembering how to fly.

Child Psychiatrist

A mother was worried that her five-year-old son was unusually talented, and took him to a child psychiatrist.

"Right," said the shrink; "We'll just try a few simple tests." he turned to the boy and said; "Say a few words -- anything that comes into your mind."

The boy turned to his mother and asked; "Does he want logically constructed sentences or just a few random and purely isolated words?"
