Sermon Illustrations: Forgetting

Although she was advised by her family and friends that she would be too old to manage, an old woman had fertility treatment and gave birth to a baby boy. After she left the hospital, her relatives came for a visit. "When can we see your new baby?" they asked. "Not yet," the 70-year-old replied. They thought the baby must have been asleep so the relatives waited for about an hour and asked again, "Can we see him now?" "Not yet," the old woman answered. Another two hours passed. "Come on, surely we can see him now?" the relatives asked. "No," replied the pensioner. "So when can we see your baby?" the exasperated relatives demanded. "When he cries," replied the woman. "Why do we have to wait until he cries?" the relatives asked. "Because I've forgotten where I put him."
