Boys and girls on the planet blue mind their parents and pick up their toys. They have chores to do and pick up their toys. They don't play video games all day and they don't watch television all the time. They play outside for exercise and enjoy the birds, flowers, trees and even little lizards running across the yard. Boys and girls on the planet blue love Jesus and try to be good. On this particular day Harry Lee was playing outside with his friends. They were playing baseball – boys and girls. They were having fun.
All of a sudden as Harry Lee looked away – because he saw a beautiful butterfly – the baseball hit him hard on the head. He was knocked out. They took him to the hospital. He would be alright but while he was sleeping it seems Harry Lee awoke in a place of unfamiliar surroundings with people and children he did not know. He was part of a family he did not know. They knew his name. They told him "Welcome to earth Harry Lee – the blue planet. The mom and dad were arguing with each other and the children were playing video games. Harry Lee felt lost and alone. He was told to go upstairs to his room.
The room was messy – messy – messy and Harry Lee did not like it. There were toys on the floor. There were toys on the bed and there were toys on the chair. Harry Lee could not understand why. He decided to go back downstairs and talk to the people that acted like he belonged there. They were too busy and told him to come back later. Harry Lee could not help but ask a simple question – "Don't you love Jesus?" he asked. They all said "What does that have to do with anything?" Then Harry Lee told them about the planet blue and if they really loved Jesus they would not argue and they would clean the messy – messy rooms. They would play outside and enjoy Gods' creations – birds, trees, flowers and animals of all kinds. He told them on the planet blue children had chores to do and were respectful of each other. He told them he wanted to be good because that is what Jesus expected of him. He told them all the beautiful things were "treats" from God for them to enjoy. He told them he was ready to go back to the planet blue because there everyone knew what life was all about. Harry Lee left and the family was silent for a while.
