Sharing - Lily (toucan) and Carlos (turtle)
oneprop - small Bible
Lily - (squawks frequently ... jumps up and down ... excited ... worried ... talks fast ... high pitched voice)
Oh Dear Me! (appears suddenly)
What am I going to do? This is awful, just AWFUL!!!
I feel terrible. (shaking head)
And where is Carlos?
Carlos - (moves slow ... talks slow ... deep voice with calming tone)
Hello Lily. Here I am. (appears slowly)
I was polishing my shell when I got your text.
I stopped ... and ran over as fast as I could.
Lily - Oh, Carlos - It's awful, just AWFUL!!!
You know I live in a Big birdhouse with my friends.
Well, every Tuesday I go to the granary and pick up bird seed for all of us.
Carlos - That's sure nice of you, Lily.
Lily - Yes, but yesterday I forgot! And when I called today, the message said they're on vacation the rest of the week. Oh My! I can't bare to think of my friends being hungry. It's all my fault! (crying)
Carlos - Now, now, Lily, don't cry. It's going to be O.K. I bet God has an answer. He always does.
Where's your Bible?
Lily - Oh! Wait a minute. I'll go get it.
(pause while Lily disappears and returns with small Bible)
Here, Carlos! What does it say?
Carlos - Well, Lily, let me see. I think this verse in Hebrews can help.
It says, "And do not forget to do good and to share with others".
Lily, didn't you get two HUGE bags of birdseed last month for your birthday?
Lily - That's it, Carlos! I can share my birthday birdseed! I'll divide it all up in little sacks and give one to each of my friends to last them till next week.
Oh - Thank You, Carlos!!!
Carlos - You're welcome, Lily. Remember, it's always a good thing to turn to the Lord and His word when you're in trouble.
Lily - I will, Carlos. Gotta get to work! See you later ... Bye! (quickly disappears)
Carlos - Good bye, Lily. I'll just run back home and finish polishing my shell. (slowly walks away)
"And do not forget to do good and to share with others." (Hebrews 13:16, NIV).
