FIVE MINUTES OF GRACE: FROM THE MOUTHS OF BABES

Spiritual Renewal and the Art of Giving Thanks

On a recent trip to the Grocery Store in Dallas, Texas, while waiting for my Starbucks coffee creation, I started reading a paper called Senior News. Glancing through the pages I found a delightful column called Laughing Matters. One of these Laughing Matters columns was titled:
Angeles Explained by Children. Compiled by Susan Capps (December 2009)

I chose a few to share with you that were especially touching.

“It’s not easy to become an angel! First, you die. Then you go to heaven, and there’s still the flight training to go through. And then you got to agree to wear those angel clothes”. – Matthew, 9

“My guardian angel helps me with math, but he’s not much good for science”. – Henry, 8

“Angels don’t eat, but they drink milk from Holy Cows”. – Jack, 6

“Angels talk all the way while they’re flying you up to heaven. The main subject is where you went wrong before you got dead”. – Daniel, 9

“Angels live in cloud houses made by God and his son, who’s a very good carpenter”. Jared, 8

“Everybody’s got it all wrong. Angels don’t wear halos anymore. I forget why but scientists are working on it” – Olive, 9

“I only know the name of two angels. Hark and Harold”. – Gregory, 5

“When an angel gets mad, he takes a deep breath and counts to ten. And when he lets out his breath, somewhere there’s a tornado”. – Regan, 10

Until next time,

    A Mother and Child Reunion After 50 Years

    Egola Crenshaw was 20 years old and living with her family in Cincinnati in 1959 when she became pregnant. She decided to place the daughter up for adoption.

    Living near Atlanta, Egola who is now known as Egola Brown went on to have four more daughters and a son. However, the family always felt the loss of the member who wasn’t there.

    Shortly before Christmas, Brown’s granddaughter, Lauren Crenshaw, learned about the aunt she never met and went online to do some research. Soon she found a Kahron Gibson in Cincinnati who said she’d been looking for them, too.

    A mother and daughter who has been separated for 50 years as a result of the adoption reunited last weekend. Gibson and Brown embraced for the first time in 50 years Saturday in Lawrenceville, Ga. It was a Christmas present both women have been dreaming about for decades.

    Gibson celebrated the new year with her adoptive family in Cincinnati but will return to Georgia to be with her birth family in January for her 51st birthday.
