Now, for a while me and my younger sister, V, were in two different classes, I a class up from her. Now, in her class, there was a girl named Faith.
One Sunday Faith and her older sister, who was in my class, weren't able to make it to church that day. I think they had gone on vacation to visit their relatives. No big deal.
Now, after my class had let out, I eventually realized that, while I was seeing some of the other kids in V's class, I wasn't seeing V.
So I did the normal big-sisterly thing, and went to investigate.
I found that she was struggling over her weekly memory verse, which is something that her teacher placed greater importance on than mine.
So I did the normal big-sisterly thing, and went over to help her with it.
I took one look at the verse and started laughing. It was Hebrews 11:6. Well, actually, it was only the first part.
"Mrs. J," I said, "We can't please God today, Faith's not here!"
