The Beatitudes

Blessed Are They Who
Hunger After Righteousness

The bell rang for recess.

All the children scampered to the playground.

Katie was sharing her treat with Shelly.

"How did you get so good in social studies?" asked Shelly.

"Learning is important," answered Katie. "I am not good at social studies, I just want to learn things."

"I don't like school," Shelly said.  "I would rather be home playing."

"Me too," said Katie, "but learning is ok.  Everyday I learn at least one more thing than I knew yesterday; and ... we get the weekends off."

Both girls laughed as they finished their treat.

 Jesus teaches us that we must be eager to learn.

What do you think?
Do you want to learn new things?
Do you like school?
Are you glad when recess comes?
Do you think Katie makes Jesus happy?

Write to me and let me know what you think, BUT, ask your parents first.
