18 Dec CHRISTMAS MESSAGE FROM DISCOVERY MINISTRIES
“One Solitary Life”
Stories of Life and Love :
Abnormal birth: After explaining childbirth, the biology teacher asked her 3rd graders to write an essay on “childbirth” in their families. Susan went home and asked her mother how she was born. Her mother, who was busy at the time, said, “A big white swan brought you darling, and left you on our doorstep.” Continuing her research, she asked grandma how she got her mother as a child. Being in the middle of something, her grandma similarly deflected the question by saying, “A fairy brought your mom as a little baby, and I found her in our garden in an open box”. Then the girl went and asked her great-grandmother how she got her grandma as a baby. “I picked her from a box I found in the gooseberry bush,” said the surprised great grandma. With this information the girl wrote her essay. When the teacher asked her later to read it in front of the class, she stood up and began, “I was very sad to find out that there has not been a single natural birth in our family for three generations… All our children were extraterrestrials.”
Children were asked about love: “ Love is when my mommy makes a cup of coffee for my daddy and takes a little taste before she gives it to him to make sure it tastes OK. ** Love is when your puppy licks your face even after you’ve left them alone all day. ** You really shouldn’t say I love you unless you really mean it, but if you mean it, you should say it a lot. People forget. ** When someone loves you the way they call your name is different. You just know that your name is safe in their mouth.** Love is what’s in the room with you at Christmas if you stop opening presents and listen.
