The father noticed the sign of worry on his young daughter Sherry, when the doctor held the needle to inject this four-year girl. This was the first time for the child to be aware that she will be injected. She thought that this needle is enough to kill an elephant not only a young child like her.
The father held his daughter’s hand and looked at her with a look of love full of compassion. She did not hear a word from him but it was enough for her to feel his presence and to enjoy a look from him to give herself over to the doctor to do what he wants. How needy we are to feel the divine presence in our trials to see the eyes of our Savior looking upon us.
