I was on the airplane yesterday. There was a precious little girl sitting behind me. Her mom explained, she has two speeds, this one and off. She chattered the entire flight. At first I grimaced and considered bringing out my headphones to drown out the noise. But after awhile, I was reminded of my daughter that age. I was hooked.
She asked her mom a question, “What do you say if you see a cloud in the shape of a sheep?”
I know her mom must have been tired…but still no response. Come on, mom…but her eyes were closed as she zoned out for awhile.
I turned around, winked at the toddler, and mouthed, “Baaaaa.”
It seemed to appease the little girl for a few moments anyway. It was our little secret. A moment just between us. And I was so thankful I did not bring out the headphones.
I have lots of questions right now. Am I hearing you right, God? Is this the right place, God? Will you show me a sign? Just a little glimpse. That’s all I need. It is like this game with the toddler, just a wink and a short answer will suffice. I know you hear me. I am trying to wait patiently. I’ve asked the question, now waiting for the answer…
What do you say if you see a cloud in the shape of a sheep?
