Once upon a time there was a little girl who grew to be a woman but still felt like a little girl inside at times. One night, as she was praying, she asked God if the two of them could go to one of God's most favourite places in all the earth, sit down, and have a heart-to-heart chat.
"Remember how you used to put your arm up in the air as you fell asleep every night and pretend you were holding My hand?" God asked the woman. "That's one of my favourite places. I loved the beauty and simplicity of your faith."
"But God," the woman protested, somewhat embarrassed, "I was a child; I was too stupid to know any better!"
God laughed. "That's what I loved about it."
The two of them sat there quietly, enjoying one another's presence. The woman could have come up with a hundred questions but decided against it. God put His arm around her. For now, it was enough to know that He was near.
