A Story to Share at Christmas

A young man was teaching in a mission school in East Africa.Before Christmas, he had been telling the local children how Christians gave each other presents as an expression of their joy at Christmas time.
   On Christmas morning, a boy around ten years old brought the teacher a seashell of great beauty. When asked where he had discovered such a magnificent shell the boy said that he had walked many kilometres to a certain bay, the only spot where such shells could be found.
  " I think it was wonderful of you to travel so far to get this lovely gift for me," the teacher exclaimed.
     His eyes brightening, the boy replied, "Long walk part of the gift."

Jesus made the long journey to earth to show us how much God loves us.
"God so love the world that he gave His only Son that whosoever believes in him will have eternal life." John 3:16

Christmas joke

"Certainly you Majesty," says the manager, "will it be your usual? Deep pan,crisp and even?"

Sam the Snowflake Story

Sam, the snowflake


SPLAT !  SAM     the snowflake loved the wintertime. He enjoyed being rolled into a ball and thrown at someone in fun. He also loved seeing the children rolling and tumbling in the snow around him.
One day as Sam was waking up, he heard some children coming towards him. They started picking up handful of cold snow and building a large snowman !! The children giggled as they put stones down the front of the snowman to make buttons and two big eyes. They also used sticks for arms and a bumpy nose. Finally they were finished and they stood back to look at what they had made. One small girl took off her hat and scarf and then she ran over and put them on the snowman.
“He looks great !”, said the boy with the curly hair.
Sam agreed that the snowman did look great, in fact, Sam longed to be part of that snowman but he knew that he couldn’t be a snowman without the help of lots of other snowflakes. He needed someone to come along and squeeze him into a big snow ball. He couldn’t be a snowman by himself. He was just too tiny by himself !
The children enjoyed playing until it started to get dark then the little girl went over to get her hat and coat from the the snowman’s head. As she turned to leave, she bent down quickly and scooped up a handful of snow, pressed it tightly and with a loud giggle she made a snow-hat for the snowman.
What a big surprise for Sam as he now found himself right up on top of the snowman. He was so happy that he almost melted with joy !
Are there times when we feel so small that we aren’t noticed or feel important ? Who can we ask to help give us a hand at times like this ?
