Wet Pants

WET PANTS

Come with me to a third-grade classroom ...

A 9-year-old kid is sitting at his desk. All of a sudden, there is a puddle between his feet, and the front of his pants are wet. He thinks his heart is going to stop because he cannot possibly imagine how this has happened. It's never happened before, and he knows that when the boys find out, he will never hear the end of it. When the girls find out, they'll never speak to him again as long as he lives.

The boy believes his heart is going to stop; he puts his head down and prays this prayer: "Dear God, this is an emergency! I need help now! Five minutes from now I'm dead meat."

He looks up from his prayer and here comes the teacher with a look in her eyes that says he has been discovered.

As the teacher is walking toward him, a classmate named Susie is carrying a goldfish bowl that is filled with water. Susie trips in front of the teacher and inexplicably dumps the bowl of water in the boy's lap.

The boy pretends to be angry, but all the while is saying to himself, "Thank you, Lord! Thank you, Lord!"

Now, instead of being the object of ridicule, the boy is the object of sympathy.

The teacher rushes him downstairs and gives him gym shorts to put on while his pants dry. All the other children are on their hands and knees cleaning up around his desk. The sympathy is wonderful. But, as life would have it, the ridicule that should have been his has been transferred to someone else - Susie.

She tries to help, but they tell her to get out. You've done enough, you klutz!"

Finally, at the end of the day, as they are waiting for the bus, the boy walks over to Susie and whispers, "You did that on purpose, didn't you?"

Susie whispers back, "I wet my pants once too."

May God help us see the opportunities that are always around us to do good.

SandyFla,

  What an warm post that shows the unconditional love of a child for another.  How beautiful.  I wish to raise my son to be this way.

Proverbs 10 : 12  Hatred stirs up contentions, but love covers all transgressions.

Anne - From what I can see of the picture, your son looks beautiful. It's obvious you love him very much. :)

Arcturus - Great Scripture! The girl in the story demonstrates that perfectly. :)

SandyFla,

  Yes I do love him.  HE is both David and my pride and joy.  We kinda went overboard on him for the Holidays this year LOL.  I cannot get enough of him.  Everyday brings new wonderment in my eyes and new insights about God.  God has used our son to bring David and I closer to eachother.

  My friend Susan can't get enough of him LOL. 

  Talk to you later.

  Sincerely,


  Anne C. McGuire
