The Missing Watch

Morning Story and Dilbert

There once was a farmer who discovered that he had lost his watch in the barn. It was no ordinary watch because it had sentimental value for him.

After searching high and low among the hay for a long while; he gave up and enlisted the help of a group of children playing outside the barn.

He promised them that the person who found it would be rewarded.

Hearing this, the children hurried inside the barn, went through and around the entire stack of hay but still could not find the watch. Just when the farmer was about to give up looking for his watch, a little boy went up to him and asked to be given another chance.

The farmer looked at him and thought, “Why not? After all, this kid looks sincere enough.”

So the farmer sent the little boy back in the barn. After a while the little boy came out with the watch in his hand! The farmer was both happy and surprised and so he asked the boy how he succeeded where the rest had failed.

The boy replied, “I did nothing but sit on the ground and listen. In the silence, I heard the ticking of the watch and just looked for it in that direction.”

  1. I love this blog. It makes me smile every time.

    By the way though. I am curious about your tags: including iPad, iPhone, transportation and travel? Why those?


    • The Tags that are associated with a Post are like advertising. The Tag or topic, can be used to explore and find post associated with a subject Tag.

      It can also be used as a form of advertising. If the Tag is trending, or popular out in the blogosphere, it will bring people to your post.

      With that said, 🙂 MS&D is an outreach for Christian Values. These tags that seem out of place for MS&D are actually an outreach to people that may not normally read this type of material… 🙂

      Great question!!!! 🙂

      Take Care and God Bless 🙂 Kenny T


  2. Now that is VERY inspirational. Only in stillness and quiet will we hear the whispers of God! Thanks for sharing!


  3. I never get tired of stories that offer strong imagery for spiritual principles. Thank you, Kenny, for your stellar collection!
