Knock, Knock. Who’s There?

Oh, to have the faith of a little child!

A nurse on the pediatric ward, before listening to the little ones’ chests, would plug the stethoscope into their ears and let them listen to their own hearts.  Their eyes would always light up with awe, but she never got a response equal to four-year-old David’s comment.  Gently she tucked the stethoscope into his ears and placed the disk over his heart.

“Listen!” she said.  “What do you suppose that is?”

David drew his little eyebrows together in a puzzled line and looked up as if lost in the mystery of the strange tap-tap-tapping in his chest.

Then his face broke out in a wondrous grin and he asked, “Is that Jesus knocking?”

    I’ve heard this cute story before. It’s good to remind us that Jesus wants to be our Savior and share our lives. Thanks, Becky. Come visit.

    I love that story! I was a pediatric nurse before I retired and that is so special.

    Fantastic! Short, to the point–and what a point. I’m on my way out the door, heading to church. You have sent me off with a smile on my face and hope in my heart.

    I am a new visitor here on your blog so I was doing a bit of catching up. I am so glad that your tests turned out to be not as disturbing as they could have been. May you continue to heal and return to good health.
