FC: How the Giraffe got to be so Tall

1: How the Giraffe got to be so tall Copy Right 2009

2: Once there was a group of friends who lived in Kenya, Africa; George the elephant, Randy the rhino, Louis the zebra, and little, Jeffrey the giraffe. But, George, Randy, and Louis are much bigger than Jeffrey, so the walk much faster.

3: So when the group migrates to a different spot, Jeffrey is always the last one there. Whenever Jeffrey finally catches up to the group, all the grass is gone, and Jeffrey starves.

4: Jeffrey prays to God to make him faster so he can catch up with the others. He prays for weeks and weeks.

5: But, one morning, he wakes up, and he’s much taller than George, Randy, and Louis. Jeffrey thinks God made a mistake, because he asked to be faster, but he became taller. He prays to God, and asks him, “God, why have you made me taller, I asked to be faster, I think you’ve made a mistake”.

6: Jeffrey wakes up the next morning and he’s even bigger. Later that day, the grass was running out, so of George, Randy, Louis, and Jeffrey decide to move to a different spot.

7: Jeffrey is still really slow, whenever he catches up; all of the grass is gone.

8: . The only food left is the leaves on the trees that no one, except the birds, can reach. Jeffrey is very hungry, and is about to starve. As he sits on the dirt under a tree, he wonders why God didn’t help him, a small leave falls from the tree above him. He slowly eats it, savoring the flavor, knowing that’s the only food he will get that day.

9: Randy is trying to come up with an idea to solve this problem. Finally Randy shouts, “Jeffrey, your tall enough to reach the branches on the tree, just eat the leaves!” Jeffrey jumps up and eats a huge bite of leaves, and thanked Randy for his genius idea.

10: That night, Jeffrey thanked God in prayer, and that’s how the giraffe got to be so tall.That night, Jeffrey thanked God in prayer, and that’s how the giraffe got to be so tall.
