A Child-like Faith

Sunday, Daniel did something that almost made me cry.

We were sitting in the service, and Daniel was on my lap flipping through his Bible. Pastor got to a point where he said, "So a couple prays and prays, and the Lord finally blesses them with a child. They praise God, and say, 'Glory to Him, God is good!' Then two years later their little child gets hit by a car and is taken from them. Are they then to conclude that God is not good?"

Then Daniel proved he is a listener. He looked up with the most sweet, enthusiastic, and postively sure face, and said,

"Rachel, God is good."

Aw, that's so sweet! Those of us who are older could learn a lot from Daniel about having complete faith in God ;)

Aww, how sweet! That is wonderful that he knows that so surely at such a young age. :)

Thanks for the comment on my blog! I thought you were another Rachel I know until you said it was your first time commenting. :)

I like your blog a lot, but it might be easier to read if either the words fit into the middle section, or you had a background that was one uniform pattern. :) They have them on The Cutest Blog On The Block - they call them "Stretch Minima Templates".

Hope you're having a lovely day! :)
