He asked the children if they thought it was beautiful. The reaction was mixed. Then he held up a rose in full bloom and asked again, is this beautiful.
God has put something beautiful in all of us, his Holy Spirit, but if we don't let others see that beauty then we are like the rose bud, hiding all of the beauty that God puts into his children.
At Sunday School they were teaching how God created everything, including human beings. Little Johnny seemed especially intent when they told him how Eve was created out of one of Adam’s ribs.
Later in the week his mother noticed him lying down as though he were ill, and she said, ‘Johnny, what is the matter?’
Little Johnny responded, ‘I have pain in my side. I think I’m going to have a wife.’
Much love, Dennis
