God Loves You

An anecdote from years when Orphanages were more common, and typically run by the church.

A little 6 year old girl, at the orphanage, is feeling kind of down in the dumps. She's in the playground keeping to herself, away from the other children.  Sister Beatrice comes by and asks her:

Sr. B.:  Grace, what is wrong?

Grace: Oh Sr. Beatrice.  I just sad because no one loves me.

Sr. B: But Grace, remember God loves you very much.

Grace: Oh sister, I know God loves me, I just want someone with skin on.

Scripture to keep in mind

Six things there are, which the Lord hateth, and the seventh his soul detesteth: [17] Haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, [18] A heart that deviseth wicked plots, feet that are swift to run into mischief, [19]A deceitful witness that uttereth lies, and him that soweth discord among brethren. [20] My son, keep the commandments of thy father, and forsake not the law of thy mother. ***Cf:Douay-Rheims Proverbs 6: 16-20
