A PROMISE KEPT
I stood behind a tree in a forest at dusk watching what was no less than amazing.
A little girl sat crouched down all alone.
She was smiling, yet I saw no one else in sight as she gazed straight ahead.
As I watched, I saw her reach out with open arms to no one.
Then, all at once, I saw animals of all kinds walking towards her.
I wondered why they were not afraid of her or of each other.
A blue bird was the last to join as he flew to her hand and sat.
I knew that I was witnessing something precious and extraordinary by this world.
I had often pondered how the Garden of Eden had been.
In my amazement, she turned her face and smiled at me.
With this smile came a radiant light all about her.
It was at this moment I had no doubts that God indeed takes care of all His creatures just as He promised;
For in this light her wings shone brightly.
