A Young Girl and Her Mother

By Jilly | 14th January

A beautiful 6 year old girl was with her mother waiting for a store to open.

Outside the store, it was raining very heavily. People gathered, some patiently, others irritated because of the inconvenience.

The little girl's voice broke the silence as she said, "Mom, let's run through the rain."

"What?", said the mom. "Let's run through the rain!" replied the little girl.

"No honey, we'll wait until it slows down a little bit."

This young child waited another minute and repeated, "Mom, let's run through the rain!"

"We'll get soaked if we do." said the mom. "No, we won't, Mom. That's not what you said this morning." said the little girl.

"This morning? When did I say we could run through the rain and not get wet?", asked the mom.

"Don't you remember? When you were talking to daddy about his cancer, you said, if our faith can get us through this, we can get get through anything!"

Everyone stopped and stood silently...

The mother paused and thought for a moment about what to say.

This was a moment of affirmation in a young child's life.

A time when innocent trust can be nurtured so that it will bloom into faith.

Honey, you are absolutely right. Let's run through the rain...
