Who is your little Susie in life?








Who is your little Susie in life?






Come with me

to a third grade classroom..... There is a

nine-year-old kid sitting at his desk and all of

a sudden, there is a puddle between his feet and

the front of his pants are wet. He thinks his

heart is going to stop because he cannot

possibly imagine how this has happened.. It's

never happened before, and he knows that when

the boys find out he will never hear the end of

it. When the girls find out, they'll never speak

to him again as long as he







The boy

believes his heart is going to stop; he puts his

head down and prays this prayer, 'Dear God, this

is an emergency! I need help now! Five minutes

from now I'm dead







He looks up

from his prayer and here comes the teacher with

a look in her eyes that says he has been







As the

teacher is walking toward him, a class mate

named Susie is carrying a goldfish bowl that is

filled with water. Susie trips in front of the

teacher and inexplicably dumps the bowl of water

in the boy's







The boy

pretends to be angry, but all the while is

saying to himself, 'Thank you, Lord! Thank you,







Now all of a

sudden, instead of being the object of ridicule,

the boy is the object of sympathy. The teacher

rushes him downstairs and gives him gym shorts

to put on while his pants dry out. All the other

children are on their hands and knees cleaning

up around his desk. The sympathy is wonderful.

But as life would have it, the ridicule that

should have been his has been transferred to

someone else -







She tries to

help, but they tell her to get out. You've done

enough, you







Finally, at

the end of the day, as they are waiting for the

bus, the boy walks over to Susie and whispers,

'You did that on purpose, didn't you?' Susie

whispers back, 'I wet my pants once







May God help

us see the opportunities that are always around

us to do
