Rousing Baby Quartet

Cartoon of four babies in baby bedsCartoon of four babies in baby beds. One baby says, “Do you know what we have here? We have the makings of a great quartet!

When I have served in nurseries and the babies began wailing, I’ve often wondered what it would be like if the kiddos cried in harmony. Someone needs to modify an autotune device so it could make church nurseries harmonious places.

Cartoon of a man at an alligator-infested moat. The man yells, “Doris! It’s Bob, the Children’s Pastor. I have an appointment with Pastor Kenneth!

No matter where you go, it can be difficult to get access to leaders. Sometimes, it is because leaders get interrupted continually. Sometimes, it can be because of personalities that clash. Other times, it may be because there was a great sale on moats and alligators. It can be for a host of reasons.  

This cartoon was not taken from a real-life experience. Nor were there any reptiles harmed in the creation of this cartoon.

I drew this for Kidzmatter Magazine.

In the United states, the kids are itching for summer vacation. I remember how exuberant everyone felt at the end of the school year. It took about three days before the kids were bored and we were looking for something to do. It isn’t until you become adult do you realize quiet, boring times are a real gift. The trick is to live each day as the celebration it is.

Was That Really Anonymous?

There are ways to send anonymous emails, but I’m not telling. Besides, if you think you have to say it anonymously, you probably shouldn’t say it at all.
