In a world filled with bad news, tragedy, and unkindness, we want to promote the GOOD AND KIND things people do for others.

Come with me  
to a third grade classroom..... There is a  
nine-year-old kid sitting at his desk and 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  

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

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

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

Remember.....Just going to  
church doesn't make you a Christian any more  
than standing in your garage makes you a
