Holy Spirit Interactive Kids: Storybook: Little David and the Miracle of a Baby

Little David and the Miracle of a Baby

by Deacon Tom Frankenfield

After a long night in the hospital, little David was very excited when his Uncle Steve came out of the birthing room and announced that Aunt Debbie just had a little boy and they were going to call the baby, Lincoln.

David said, “Cool!” and David gave his Uncle Steve a big hug. As he hugged Uncle Steve, David saw tears in Uncle Steve’s eyes. “What’s the matter, Uncle Steve, why are you sad?” said David.

Uncle Steve laughed and said, “These tears are not sad tears David; they are happy tears. I am so happy to be a Dad!”

Then Uncle Steve took David into the birthing room to see Aunt Debbie and his new cousin, Lincoln.

Before he knew it, Uncle Steve put Lincoln in David’s arms and told him all about babies. “David, babies are wonderful gifts from God. God gives us His children to love. One of the most important jobs that Aunt Debbie and I have is to teach Lincoln about God’s love.”

David asked, “How can you teach the baby about God’s love when God knows everything?

Uncle Steve laughed and said, “When Aunt Debbie and I love each other we will teach Lincoln all about God. We need your help too. Can you help us to love Lincoln?”

“You bet,” said David. “I love him already!” Gently, David leaned over and kissed Lincoln on the cheek and said, “I love you, Lincoln.”

With that Uncle Steve and Aunt Debbie started to cry again as they felt and saw the warmth of God’s love. At the same time, everyone else in the hospital room cried those special tears of joy. They all loved Lincoln, David and each other very much…that is God’s special plan of love for all of us.

Stay happy…Deacon Tom
