We were discussing the fact that a woman we both know is interested and concerned for my daughter.

“Why would she be impressed by me and why would my story interest her? 


“Maybe because God loves you very much.  Have you ever thought about why you are here and not one of the millions of other kids struggling in Africa?”


“Yeah, I think about that a lot.”  Pause.  “I should pray more”


“Well, do you pray?”


“Not very often.”


“You pray when you are desperate don’t you?”


“Yeah.  And I guess my dance is a prayer sometimes.  Its what God made me good at.”

    I must comment though I am a stranger. The comment of your daughter….her dance as prayer. I feel like I am reading Madeleine l’Engle…I shall take her words to school tomorrow.
