He was a little boy who had a mission
He was going to see Jesus before Christmas
He went to places he thought he would surely
see Jesus clearly. He went to churches, and
convents, and all his relatives, and still he
just didn't seem to be able to see Jesus
He was getting worried and told his father
"I haven't seem him yet! I have to see
him before Christmas. I want to give him
a birthday present!" ' Don't worry son, I have
a feeling Jesus will show up just in time." as he smiled at his son with
love, he knew that it was out of his hands and up to Jesus
on how to decide when he woudl help his son experience
his presense. It was Christmas eve and still no sigh of Jesus.
He wondered how he would ever be able to give him his gift
if he didn't see him.As he waited for the bus to take him home
from his friends house he noticed a man who looked like he hadn't
eaten or taken a bath for weeks.
Tommy thought boy, he better stay away from me. I have
heard about people ilike that.He couldn't wait until the bus came so that
he wouldn't be near him anymore.The man started coming closer.
Tomy's heart started pounding!"Get away from me . I don't have
any money for you go away!"As he got nearer Tommy looked
straight into his eyes and saw a compassion, wisdom, and
beauty ,and he just couldn't keep his eyes off him." Tommy, you have
been looking for me haven't you?"He smiled as if he could see right
through his heart.His heart kept pounding harder. Could it be
that this man who looked so dirty could be Jesus?"Tommy stuttered and
asked ,"Ah are you Jesus?". Tommy kept looking into his eyes."Yes
Tommy. You said there was a gift you wanted to give me.?A birhtday
gift."Yes, I have it right here." Tommy couldn't believe his eyes and ears!
" I made a card with a drawing of my heart on it. I want to give it to you."
"Tommy that is a perfect gift. Because of your gift I will tell you a secret.
Remember the places you went to find me and couldn't? Well, I was
there!You just weren't ready to see me yet. You see I am in everyone!"
Jesus smiled and then walked away.Tommy was so excited, but
wondered if anyone would believe what he just saw!His father would.
Tommy told his father and he believed him and they had the best
