Out of the Mouths of Babes

Now, normally I don't do this but this was such a good story I had to post it for all of you.

A father wanted to read a magazine but was being bothered by His little girl, Shelby. 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 Shelby and said, "Go into the other room and see if you can put this Together. This will show you our whole country today." After a few minutes, Shelby 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."

Isn't that just perfectly right?
