[Setting: Morning, living room, heated discussion between parents.]
Daughter: “What’s wrong?”
Daddy: “Mommy is mad at daddy. It’s okay, sometimes adults disagree, but we love each other and everything is going to be alright.”
[Daddy hugs and kisses daughter, trusting the Lord to make his last six words not be a lie. Then daddy hugs and kisses mommy and heads off late to work.]
[Setting: Later, at work, phone buzzes. Copious texting.]
Mommy and Daddy: “I’m sorry. I love you.”
[Setting: Daughter joyfully laughing and playing]
Daughter: “Thank you, Jesus. I knew you heard my prayer.”
