Little Joshua was playing in the closet right by the bathroom. I noticed that he had tucked his little body under the bottom shelf, beside some storage bins. He smiled at me sweetly from his hiding place. I was just passing through, checking to make sure that everyone was on task with their morning routine. As I walked in the girls room I heard the door close and Joshua call from inside. I didn't go to him because I knew David was right there and thought that he would let Joshua out. Several minutes later I exited the girls room and walked into the bathroom, calling for David. As I passed by Joshua said "Mama, Mama." I was amazed that he was still in the closet! But more amazed that he was so calm. I opened the door to the same sweet smile. I thought to myself, how calm and sweet he has remained, in the dark closet. He had such faith that I would come and let him out that it did not even occur to him to be afraid. Truly the faith of a little child is a wonderful thing!
"And he said unto them, Where is your faith? And they being afraid wondered, saying one to another, What manner of man is this! for he commandeth even the winds and water, and they obey him." -Luke 8:25
