That Little Flame

"What is that?"
"Right there. What is that little flame that she is setting down?"
"Oh--that is hope."
"Yes, a persistent hope."
"And who is that, the one lying down behind it?"
"That is one in need of hope."
"And who sent this hope?"
"He did--the One who loves her more than any other."
"But is that little flame enough? She seems so . . . so downcast."
"Oh, yes, more than enough. You see that little flame will grow."
"It will?"
"Yes. First it will fill her heart, then it will light her eyes, then it will make her rise up off the ground and then she will shine."
"Yes, like Him himself."
"That brightly? Really?"
"Oh, yes. He loves to make His children shining lights!"
