If you’ve ever spent time around children, you know that kids say some of the darnedest things. And if you’re an outspoken person yourself, chances are you’ve been told a thing or two that YOU have said that made people laugh, cry, or somewhere in between.
But a little girl did an amazing job telling the Story of Jonah. She did such an amazing job, in fact, that it was posted on YouTube with the title “The Story of Jonah as Told by The Cutest Little Girl.”
As a certified English teacher I can tell you it’s not generally proper to capitalize The in a title. But YouTube makes its own rules, and in this case it really could have been “THE Cutest Little Girl.”
She obviously hasn’t learned to be afraid of public speaking, and we can all be grateful for that. Maybe she’s reading already, but she doesn’t seem to be reading here. She was simply telling a story she knew well, and believed in, and when she needed the words, they were there. She was truly, Divinely, inspired.
This video reinforces something we already know. Kids pick up what they hear, and even when you think they’re not listening, they are. And they can surprise you, and inspire you, at any moment. So charge those camcorder batteries now because the holidays are HERE. Happy Holidays! Enjoy!
