Albert

AN OLD MAN WAS GROCERY SHOPPING WITH HIS GRANDSON. THE TODDLER WAS
CRYING AND AT TIMES SCREAMING AT THE TOP OF HIS LUNGS. AS THE OLD GENTLEMAN WALKED UP AND DOWN THE AISLES, PEOPLE COULD
HEAR HIM SPEAKING IN A SOFT VOICE...

"WE ARE ALMOST DONE, ALBERT...
TRY NOT TO CRY, ALBERT...
LIFE WILL GET BETTER, ALBERT..."

AS HE APPROCHED THE CHECKOUT STAND, HE CAREFULLY BRUSHED THE TODDLER'S TEARS FROM HIS EYES AND SAID AGAIN,

"TRY NOT TO CRY, ALBERT...
WE WILL BE HOME SOON, ALBERT..."

AS HE WAS PAYING THE CASHIER, THE TODDLER CONTINUED TO CRY AS A YOUNG WOMAN IN LINE BEHIND HIM SAID, "SIR, I THINK IT IS WONDERFUL HOW SWEET YOU ARE BEING TO YOUR LITTLE
ALBERT."

THE OLD GENTLEMAN BLINKED HIS EYES A COUPLE OF TIMES BEFORE SAYING
"MISS, MY GRANDSON'S NAME IS JOHN...

I'M ALBERT....................................

Sorry I have not commented in a while. But I do read all your posts.

I wanted to invite you and your readers over to a blog I started tonight. For about 2 1/2 years I sent out Daily Devotionals, which included many articles and studies by others. Some were links and some were full articles on other websites or message boards - but unfortunately over time, some of those websites went down or are no longer in existence. I no longer have programs to edit my pages on Earnestly Contending, so I stopped sending out articles by others. The ones on my Study Blog are by me, except for the ones written by Kate in the series on Numbers In The Bible we worked on together.

Here is the link to my Blog that will contain articles by sound men of the faith: Faithful Men Of God

I haven't yet had a chance to work on the layout of the blog (ie. other links, and extras on the side margin), but you can access what articles I have put up so far.

Cute! Good way to keep yourself calm in those situations.
