“I don’t KNOW!” Irritated, Daddy flipped Erin’s hand away. “Just watch!”

Eli was more experienced. He knew how dangerous it was to bother Daddy. He leaned down and whispered in Erin’s ear, “It’s special cloth that can glow in the dark. They’re not on fire.”

“Oh.” Erin sighed, leaning against Eli for comfort. She gulped down a sob. “I wish Mommy was here.”

Hearing her, Daddy shook her by the shoulder. “Stop it! Right now! We’re here to have FUN!”

  1. Beautifully and painfully told, Linda. You have a beautiful heart for these people, Linda and for helping their voices be heard. My character this week could easily end up being one of your clients. There are too many of these people and somehow we need to reach them and help bind up their wounds and be Jesus’s hands and feet.
    Best wishes & God Bless,
