Julie Feels the Power of God

[Of special interest to children]

Julie crossed the moss-covered stone bridge which led into the park. Music from the park band mingled with the sounds of a rushing creek in the warm afternoon air. The family had hurried on ahead of her to find a picnic table on the green lawns, but Julie had lingered on the bridge. She watched the clear water splashing over smooth rocks below and almost wished she had not come. Even the promise Father had made that she and her brother, Jim, could go horseback riding didn't make her feel any better.

Coming down in the car, she hadn't felt well. Not wanting to spoil the family's day, she had said nothing about it. But now Julie felt that she must lie down, so she joined the others on the wide expanse of lawns.
