The Map

While using Google to search for the church in Orange Heights that I attended while living in Melrose, FL (near Gainesville, FL), I came across James Croft's blog. James Croft is an evangelist that lives in Olustee, FL. On his blog I found the following post that I really liked:
A father wanted to read a magazine but was being bothered by his little girl. She wanted to know what the United States looked like.
Finally, he tore a sheet out of his new magazine on which was printed the map of the country. Tearing it into small pieces, he gave it to her, & said, "Go into the other room & see if you can put this together. This will show you our whole country today."
After a few minutes, she returned & handed him the map correctly fitted together. The father was surprised & asked how she had finished so quickly.
"Oh," she said, "on the other side of the paper is a picture of Jesus. When I got all of Jesus back where He belonged, then our country just came together."
