Just days before the end of the school year, Nemo, Lil’ K’s preschool class fish appeared to be sick. He was not swimming or eating. He sat at the bottom of the fish tank and it appeared that he might not make it to the end of the school year to bid farewell to the students who kept watch over him since last August.
The teacher suggested putting Nemo on the Prayer Wall in the classroom and students took turns praying for him.
When the teacher arrived at the classroom the very next morning, Nemo was swimming around, looking as good as new!
This event bolstered the faith of those precious 3-year-olds and Lil’ K couldn’t wait to come home and tell me about the miracle that had happened in 3′s class that day.
Now, Lil’ K prays for things that concern her. Last night, we were playing around just before bed. She threw her head back and it hit me square in the ribs. I honestly thought she may have bruised (or broken!) a rib. She felt awful for hurting me and started crying. After I consoled her, assuring her that I forgave her and that I was not at all upset, she sat down, folded her little hands together, and prayed softly. Although I could not hear everything she said, I managed to hear, “Dear God, please help Mommy and help her to feel better.”
This morning, I awakened and the pain was gone. I told Lil’ K that my rib was no longer sore and she exclaimed excitedly, “It’s a miracle!”
Coming from my miracle child, that makes me beyond happy!
