Understand the Situation Before You React

My four year old Grandaughter Casey, had some company at her house this past weekend. Extra kids, (cousins and friends) were running and playing, and screaming and sometimes out of control.
Casey went into her normally untidy room and found a terrible mess. She looked at the floor, put her hands to the side of her face and yelled, "JESUS", with a gusto usually reserved for someone speaking from a pulpit. This brought her Mother running to the door with a vengeance. This was not going to be tolerated. Mom yelled, "Casey, what did you say?"
Casey bent down to retrieve her picture of Jesus that is normally on the wall. She said "Look!Jesus is on the floor, What's wrong Mom?"
A smile made it's way onto Mom's face. "Oh nothing sweety, I'll help you put the picture back on the wall."

Okay... I LOVE this post!
Jesus should NEVER EVER be on the floor. Casey was right. She wasn't taking the Lord's name in vain. She was appalled at seeing Him on the floor like that.
What a girl!!
