A friend sent this to me today and I thought others might enjoy it as much as I do. Out of the mouths of children…


A father wanted to read a magazine but was being bothered by his little girl. She wanted to know what the United States looked like. Finally, he tore a sheet out of his new magazine on which was printed the map of the country.

Tearing it into small pieces, he gave it to her and said, “Go into the other room and see if you can put this together.”

After a few minutes, she returned and handed him the map, correctly fitted and taped together. The father was surprised and asked how she had finished so quickly.

“Oh,” she said, “On the other side of the paper is a picture of Jesus. When I got all of Jesus back where He belonged, then our country just came together.”

So, when we get Jesus back

where He Belongs—

Our country will come together!

  2. When JESUS is at the center of your life as an individual your life is in fact centered. Truly if the country had JESUS in His rightful place the country would be blessed and free from so many ailments which we now have to deal with on a daily basis. There will come a “purging” of all the evil- not only in this country but in the entire world. Jesus will be a dictator, a benevolent dictator, and all evil will be bound and placed in Hell. Jesus is the answer- the only answer.
