GEOFFREY MICHEL / L’Observateur / May 17, 2000

April 7 was my 15th birthday. Well, the day started out with a regular day ofschool. Then my mom, my grandmother and I went out to eat at a seafoodrestaurant. Actually, I have been eating out with these two for my birthday for acouple of years.

Following our dinner we went to the Esplanade Mall. After browsing around for anhour or two I decided I was ready to go home. Well, I have always enjoyed mybirthday with my mom and my grandmother. Little did I know, but that was just thebeginning of the birthday celebration.

When we reached the house I said I was going to the backyard to do something. Mymom replied that she wanted me to go do something in the house first. As I waswalking into the house I was greeted by yells of “surprise!” Now, as I walked in the back yard with some of my friends, I had no idea what I would find. In the back, mymom had rented a spacewalk and a cotton candy machine. Now, this may seemchildish to some, but the party was great.

One of the biggest hits at my birthday party was the cotton candy. Almosteverybody loves cotton candy.

Well, as my dad was making the candy people started flocking to the machine. Aboy in the 11th grade ate his cotton candy like he was 11. A varsity basketballplayer at our school stood in amazement at the machine.

Odd as this may seem, this is how God wants us to be with him. The Bible says thatwe have to be like children to enter the kingdom of heaven. God wants us to be likelittle kids, wondering and trusting in Him.
