Last Sunday I was trying to explain to my class that, when faced with the question of whether something is right or true, God can give us a warm, happy feeling in our hearts to confirm it.
I told the story of Jeff, a boy who was being taught by some missionaries and wanted to know if what they taught was true. He prayed and had a warm, happy feeling that spread throughout his entire body, traveling all the way from the tips of his toes to the top of his head. (I like to really get into my stories.)
I told them that they could pray to know if something was right or true any time - even during our class - and they could get that warm, happy feeling.
"You know what, Sisto Bwack?" Super C asked. "My woym fee-o-wing is up to he-o alweady!" he told me, indicating the top of his head with his hand.
"That's awesome, Super C!" I told him. "Did you know that if..."
"Well guess WHAT?" N--, who was joining our class this week, interrupted. "MY warm feeling is WAY up to ABOVE my HEAD!" he said excitedly, waving his hand to show me how far the feeling had spread.
"Well, N--, I think..."
"Well, MY feel-een SHOT THROUGH THE ROOF and it's WAY UP in the SKY!" Hubba countered.
"So? My fee-o-wing is alweady in SPACE!" Miss S challenged the boys.
N-- immediately came back with "NOW mine's in HEAVEN! NO one's can go HIGHER than HEAVEN!"
Everyone was quiet, contemplating the amazing height that N--'s warm feeling had reached.
Miss E had been quietly sitting with her hand raised throughout the entire conversation. "Yes, Miss E?" I asked.
"My woym feo-ling just came into my hawt (heart) and stayed they-o."
I smiled. "That is just perfect," I told her.
And no one tried to beat it.
