Divine Love's care for children

My two-year-old granddaughter, Emlyn, had been visiting me, and we had talked about God and His love for her. Together we repeated "God is Love" until Emlyn was able to say it alone.

Soon afterward, in her own home, Emlyn and her mother were seated on the floor in front of the fireplace making a costume for her to wear that evening. The glass door of the fireplace was very hot, and Emlyn was cautioned not to touch it. She didn't heed the warning, however, and put the full palm of her hand on the glass door. Her mother quickly gathered Emlyn into her arms. She spoke to her about God's care for her even as she began to pray.
