My 11-year old daughter Emma wrote this story for school. It’s based on the story of Jesus multiplying the loaves and the fishes. I really liked her point of view and I asked her if I could post it on my blog. If you like it, leave her a word of encouragement. She wants to be a writer someday.
I was on my way home with my small lunch. I only had two small fish and five loaves of bread. It was enough for my mom and me. On that day I saw a miracle.
I was walking when I saw a crowd. I thought it was so big it must have been the whole village! Then at the corner of my eye I saw some men. I stared for a while to see what they were talking about . I slowly walked over to them. A man looked at me and smiled. He came over to me. “Do you have your lunch in there, little boy?”
I quickly responded. “How did you know?” I asked.
He said in reply, “I know everything, and now may I please look at your two fish and five loaves of bread?” I was amazed, and he did know everything. I gave him my basket. “Thank you Peter,” he said. “Peter, will you have lunch with my disciples and me?”
I was honored. Though when we sat down I thought, “This man may be amazing, but he can’t feed his disciples, himself, and me.” He gave a loaf of bread to one man named Andrew. Andrew broke the bread and handed some to Philip, but when Andrew looked at his bread it was a whole loaf! Philip had the same!
The next thing I knew, that one man had feed the whole crowd! When we finished and the disciples were collecting the extras, I asked the man, “Who are you?”
He smiled and replied, “I am Jesus Christ. I know what you do at 6:00 a.m., and I know your name. I know that you are curious, and I love you.”
As a mom, I thought that was pretty good! If you feel like it, please leave Emma some encouraging feedback and I’ll let her log on to my blog tonight to read your comments.
