‘Faith as a grain of mustard seed’

When I was a little girl, my grandmother gave me a pendant that had been hers as a teenager. As I grew up, I always remembered the tiny mustard seed that was suspended within it.

Although I had grown up going to Sunday School in a Protestant church, I was not familiar with Jesus’ words: “If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you” (Matthew 17:20). Since the pendant’s hole for a chain was too tiny for it to be slipped onto any necklace I owned, I put the piece of jewelry into a small box in my closet and forgot about it for many years.
