For to us a child is born, to us a son is given: and the government shall be on his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful…
A poor little street girl was taken sick one Christmas and carried to a hospital. While there she heard the story of Jesus' coming into the world to save us. It was all new to her, but very precious. She could appreciate such a wonderful Saviour, and the knowledge made her very happy as she lay upon her little cot. One day the nurse came around at the usual hour, and "Little Broomstick" (that was her street name) held her by the hand, and whispered: "I'm having real good times here — ever such good times! S'pose I shall have to go away from here just as soon as I get well; but I'll take the good time along — some of it, anyhow. Did you know 'bout Jesus bein' born!" "Yes," replied the nurse, "I know. Sh-sh-sh! Don't talk any more." "You did? I thought you looked as if you didn't and I was goin' to tell you." "Why, how did I look?" asked the nurse, forgetting her own orders in curiosity. "Oh, just like most o' folks — kind o' glum. I shouldn't think you'd ever look gloomy if you knowed 'bout Jesus bein' born."
