A child's faith.

A week ago Gareth made his first Communion. He was told during his preparations that he could use the special occasion as a chance to say a prayer for anything he wanted. Someone in our family was waiting for test results that had the chance of being quite devastating. We were all on edge waiting for news of the results and Gareth told me that was what his special prayer was for.

Tonight he lit another candle and this time he whispered a little prayer of thanks. The results were back and the news was good. He is totally convinced that his prayer last week helped.

How lovely to have such faith and trust. I hope he never loses it.

  1. So happy to hear the news was good ~ and how proud Gareth must be to know his faith played a part. :)

  2. Moving. Maybe I should believe a little more in miracles. Gareth teaches.
