Just my two cents...

Cute story alert.  :)

Last night at VBS, during the opening worship rally, prizes were thrown to the kids.  One of the kids sitting near me (we'll call him "Kid A") caught a pencil (yes, I totally question the wisdom of throwing pencils to small children), and a couple of minutes later, the boy next to him ("Kid B") took it.  They scrambled around on the floor for a moment.  So I took the pencil from Kid B and gave it back to Kid A.  As we left the sanctuary to go to the classroom, Kid A hands me 2 pennies.  "This is a tip for you because you gave me back my pencil.  I found it under the seat."



Also, my favorite discussion from tonight:

Ashley:  So how can we help people like Jesus did?
Kid 1:   We can help old people get across the street.
Ashley:  That's right.  But can we also help people who are smaller than us?
Kid 2:    Like jockeys?

Okay, so maybe the little kids are starting to grow on me.  Just a little.  :)
