Short Stories (Stories for the Youth), book by Father Tadros Yacoub Malaty

180- A Period of Grace Image: A female babysitter with two children صورة في موقع الأنبا تكلا: جليسة أطفال مع طفلان Image: A female babysitter with two children.

صورة في موقع الأنبا تكلا: جليسة أطفال مع طفلان.

A widower had two children. He hired a nanny to look after them. The man interviewed the nanny and gave her instructions regarding the food of the two children, cleaning the house and the children’s homework. Every now and then, the man used to call to make sure that the kids lacked nothing. A year after his wife’s death, the man married the nanny. She was then the wife. He never asked her what to cook rather she asked him what he would like to eat. She was no longer a nanny but a loving wife.

This is exactly the feeling of a true believer in his relation with God. He will not wait for an order to obey for he is a loving son who finds his delight in fulfilling the will of the Heavenly Father.

→ English translation of the story here at عهد النعمة. Divider

Lord what do You want me to do?

My heart and all my feelings are in Your hands.

I will no longer find Your commandments a burden.

Rather, it is a delight to carry Your cross.

I will live for You the rest of my life.
