The Stars of the Field

by D. L. Yoder
Originally published by on 28/08/2018

“Mother, we shall not see stars tonight. Clouds have taken them from us.'

“Helen, we shall enjoy the night sounds instead,' Lilly said, smoothing out her dress as she sat upon the hilltop.

She looked at her eleven year old daughter. In the fading light, she saw a small representation of herself. Lilly could only pray that Helen might never be touched with the pain of love torn from the heart.

Darkness came and the hill was surrounded by a sea of fireflies. Lilly reminded herself that when you lose the stars, God has another gift, one closer at hand.
