In this story, children will learn about trusting God's care for us in sad times—and how God sometimes answers our prayers with a glad surprise.
Josie was a little brown hen. She belonged to two little girls named Sally and Susan.
When Josie was a chick, a piece of wood fell on her wing and broke it. Sally and Susan took care of her, and soon Josie's wing was healed. By then, Josie had become their pet.
