A young girl that weeps for Love

There was a little girl called Dominina who was often found weeping. People thought she was very unhappy because she wept so much. But she was not shedding tears of sadness but of joy. It was the thought of all the good her Father in Heaven had done for her that made her weep.

” O my God,” she often said in her prayers, “how good you are to me, to even think of me at all!” You made me when You were not obliged to make me. You love me and have given me many blessings. O my God, how good Thou hast been to me !”

One day a man came to her house and met her crying while reading a book and the tears falling from her eye upon the book made the book wet especially at those places where the holy name of God was written.

The man asked her why she wept as she read.

Domnina answered him : I can never hear His name pronounced, or read it in a book, without feeling my whole heart filled with love for Him. He made me, therefore I am His child, and I know He loves me, poor and little though I am, just because I am His child, and I try always to keep this in mind ; and I feel so happy when I think of this, that tears of joy flow from my eyes.”

You also are Gods child, for He made you. Like Donmina, you should try to keep this always before your mind, and thank Him for His goodness in making choice of you to be His own child.
