    A mother was concerned about her kindergarten son, Timmy, walking to school. He didn't want his mother to walk with him. She wanted to give him the feeling that he had some independence but yet know that he was safe. So she had an idea of how to handle it. She asked a neighbor if she would please follow him to school in the mornings, staying at a distance, so he probably wouldn't notice her.

    The neighbor said that since she was up early with her toddler anyway, it would be a good way for them to get some exercise as well, so she agreed. The next school day, the neighbor and her little girl set out following behind Timmy as he walked to school with another neighbor girl he knew. She did this for the whole week.

    As the two walked and chatted, kicking stones and twigs, Timmy 's little friend noticed the same lady was following them as she seemed to do every day all week. Finally she said to Timmy, 'Have you noticed that lady following us to school all week? Do you know her?'

    Timmy nonchalantly replied, 'Yeah, I know who she is.' The little girl said, 'Well, who is she?' 'That's just Shirley Goodnest ,' Timmy replied, 'and her daughter Marcy ...'
    'Shirley Goodnest? Who is she and why is she following us? 'Well,' Timmy explained, 'every night my Mum makes me say the 23rd Psalm with my prayers, 'cuz she worries about me so much. And in the Psalm, it says, 'Shirley Goodnest (surely goodness) and Marcy (mercy) shall follow me all the days of my life', so I guess I'll just have to get used to it!'

    May Shirley Goodnest and Marcy be with you today and always!

    If this brought you a chuckle or two, please leave a smiley face for a comment! :laugh:

    then there is the story about the missionary to China who was teaching chidren about Jesus. One little boy Lo Ching was! very exicted about the Bible lesson one day. He went home and said the Bible talked about him. His parents did not understand and asked their child to expalin.

    The little boy told them that Jesus is always with us. And right here (Matt 28:20) ...an LO, I am with you....

    Salty, your story triggered a memory of my late wife, who had a fear of flying. She insisted that she had a Biblical reason.

    She said, "the Bible says LOW, I will be without always."
