What LOVE is -- Out of the Mouth of Babes 


         'When my grandmother got arthritis, she  couldn't bend over and paint her toenails anymore. So my grandfather does it for her all the time, even when his hands got arthritis too. That's love.'

         'Love is when a girl puts on perfume and a  boy puts on shaving cologne and they go out and  smell each other.'

          'Love is when my mommy makes coffee for my daddy and she takes a sip before giving it to him, to make sure the taste is OK.'

          Danny - age 7



          'Love is when you kiss all the time. Then when you get tired of kissing, you still want to be together and you talk more.  My Mommy and Daddy are  like that. They look gross when they kiss'

 know each other so well.'

          Tommy - age 6

 scared anymore.'

          Cindy - age 8



          'My mommy loves me more than anybody. You don't see anyone else kissing me to

 sleep at night.'

          Clare - age 6



         'Love is when Mommy gives Daddy the best piece of chicken.'

          Elaine-age 5



         'Love is when Mommy sees Daddy smelly and sweaty and still says he is handsomer than Robert Redford.'

          Chris - age 7

          Mary Ann - age 4

          Lauren - age 4



         'When you love somebody, your eyelashes go up and down and little stars come out of you.' (what an image)

          Karen - age 7



         'You really shouldn't say 'I love you'  unless you mean it. But if you mean it, you should

 say it a lot. People forget.'

          Jessica - age 8



         And the final one


         The winner was a four year old child whose next door neighbor was an elderly gentleman who had recently lost his wife. Upon seeing the man cry, the little boy went into the old gentleman's yard, climbed onto his lap, and just sat there. When his Mother asked what he had said to the neighbor, the little boy said, 'Nothing, I just helped him cry'

         Heavenly Father, please bless all my friends in whatever it is that You know they may be needing this day! And may their life be full of Your peace, prosperity and power as he/she seeks to have a closer relationship with You. Amen.
