Gifts From God

I was the teacher's helper in children's church. As the teacher was explaining that God gives us good gifts, she passed around a beautifully wrapped package and asked the children to shake it. Then she asked each child what they thought was in it. The answers were as varied as the kids are, naturally.

(It was my son that guessed a toilet. Or was it my husband's son that day?)

After each kid had a chance to shake and guess, the teacher opened the box to reveal two packages of Oreo cookies. All the kids faces lighted up, and one boy blurted out, "that IS a gift from God!"

That boy speaks the truth.

Definitely your husband's child at that moment. No question about it. Thank God they don't make toilets that small though, eh? Ummm no pun intended. Really.

I'm in the minority, but I don't actually like them. I know. I know. I will be smited (smote?) for saying that.

Yep, Oreos and milk, two good friends. I like that boy.

Too funny. The other day I bought some oreos and the kids ate most of them. One night I told them I was going to eat the rest and sent them to bed. I got my glass of milk and was all ready to enjoy a few oreos. Guess how many were left. ONE! One lousy cookie. I was so mad. Now I realize they took my gift! Oh I am so going to get them!
