Where's God?

Two little boys, ages 8 and 10, were excessively mischievous. They

were always getting into trouble and their parents knew all about it.

If any mischief occurred in their town, the two boys were probably


The boys' mother heard that a preacher in town had been successful in

disciplining children, so she asked if he would speak with her boys.

The preacher agreed, but he asked to see them individually. So the

mother sent the 8 year old first, in the morning, with the older boy

to see the preacher in the afternoon.

The preacher, a huge man with a booming voice, sat the younger boy

Yet when things are going poorly, when we are sad , depressed, out of sorts, we blame you. Heavenly Father we know you are with us each day. You take us by the hand and give us the strength we need each day. Let us never forget that.

Sometimes when we think you are missing it turns out we are the ones lost . Amen
