The Innocence of a child

8 posts in this topic

This is for all the grandmothers & grandfathers out there, or for anyone who appreciates the innocence of a child.

 

Last week, I took my grandchildren to a restaurant. My six-year-old grand-son asked if he could say grace. As we bowed our heads he said, "God is good, God is great, let us thank Him for the food...and I would thank you more if Grandpa gets us ice cream for dessert And liberty and justice for all!  Amen!"

 

Along with the laughter from the other customers nearby, I heard an older woman remark, "That's what's wrong with this country. Kids today don't even know how to pray. Asking God for ice cream! Why, I never!" Hearing this, my grand-son burst into tears and asked me, "Did I do it wrong? Is God mad at me?"

 

As I held him and assured him that he had done a terrific job, and God was certainly not mad at him, an elderly gentleman approached the table. He winked at my grand-son and said, "I happen to know that God thought that was a great prayer."

 

"Really?" my grand-son asked. "Cross my heart," the man replied. Then, in a theatrical whisper, he added (indicating the woman whose remark had started this whole thing) "Too bad she never asks God for ice cream. A little ice cream is sometimes good for the soul."

 

Naturally, I bought my grand-children ice cream at the end of the meal. My grand-son stared at his for a moment, and then did something I will remember the rest of my life. He picked up his sundae and, without a word, walked over and placed it in front of the woman.

 

With a big smile he told her, “Here, this is for you...

Well, I did think it would have been so much better without the last line. That did cheapen it. Plus I couldn't really imagine a six-year-old saying something like that. At least not with you as a grand-dad. ;)  :tease:

So you encourage your grandson to only play lip service to the Christian ethos and not to turn the other check or forgive.

Typical 'Christian'

Having just had a bath, my 10-month-old granddaughter looked intently at the water swirling down the plug hole, before jumping up in haste appearing not wishing to go down herself.  :tongue:
