How sweet is this?
A nurse on the pediatric ward, before listening to the little ones
chests, would plug the stethoscope into their ears and let them listen to
their own hearts. Their eyes would always light up with awe, but she
never got a response equal to four-year old David’s comment.
Gently she tucked the stethoscope into his ears and placed the disk
over his heart. "Listen", she said……….."What do you suppose that
is?" He drew his eyebrows together in a puzzled line and looked up as if lost
in the mystery of the strange tap – tap – tapping deep in his chest. Then
his face broke out in a wondrous grin and he asked, "Is that Jesus knocking?"
