Needing God's help

Brianna and I in the office. She's getting a little bored watching me make cards and organize some things. A bored and somewhat antsy little girl in a roomful of scrapping supplies? Not a good combo! I suggested to her that she could practice her cursive letters while she waited on me. She sat down at her little desk and proceeded to get very frustrated because she couldn't remember the correct formation of some letters. Pretty soon I hear, "God, please help me!" Then, not 30 seconds later, "God, could you just do this for me, I don't remember how!" She then gets up and walks away. When I ask her where she was going, that she needed to finish her homework, she replied, "God's going to do that for me." Of course I told her that God will help us if we do our best, but I couldn't help but admire the open honesty and faith that she had just displayed. Oh, that we could have the faith of children!

That's too cute! You're right, she just left it in the Lord's hands, didn;t she?!
