Hocus is a little white dove. He lives with a magician who uses him in his magic act. Hocus has learned to stay up his master's sleeve very quietly until the right moment. Then he comes flying out and sits on his master's finger.

It happens very quickly. All of a sudden—bing—and there's Hocus. The boys and girls watching the show have to keep their eyes open wide or they might be fooled into believing that the magician made the little dove by himself—out of nothing!

Our eyes and ears can fool us in other ways, too. They try to make us think that we can be separated from God, good. Sometimes they make the bad things that happen to us seem so real that we forget for a while that we are really safe and loved in God's care—all the time.
