THE SNEEZE

I don't know if this is true or not. I would hope Christianity is not this repressed.

THE SNEEZE

They walked in tandem, each of the ninety-two
students filing into the already crowded auditorium.
With their rich maroon gowns flowing .... and the
traditional caps, they looked almost ... as grown
up as they felt.

Dads swallowed hard behind broad smiles, and Moms
freely brushed away tears.

This class would NOT pray during the commencements--
not by choice, but because of a recent court ruling
prohibiting it.

The principal and several students were careful to stay
within the guidelines allowed by the ruling. They gave
inspirational and challenging speeches, but no one
mentioned divine guidance and no one asked for blessings
on the graduates or their families.

The speeches were nice, but they were routine.....until
the final speech received a standing ovation.

A solitary stu! dent walked proudly to the microphone.
He stood still and silent for just a moment, and then,
it happened.

All 92 students, every single one of them,
suddenly SNEEZED!!!!

The student on stage.. simply looked at the audience
and said, 'GOD BLESS YOU,
each and every one of you!' And he walked off stage...

The audience exploded into applause. This graduating
class had found a unique way to invoke God's blessing
on their future with or without the court's approval.

Isn't this a wonderful story? Pass it on to all your friends
.........and GOD BLESS YOU!!!
