not what I was expecting...

The other day I got an response that I was not expecting... Let me explain.
I came into work to find Grace ( one of my favorites) sitting at a table all alone during lunch time. I immediately knew she must have got in trouble for something. I soon found out that she had thrown a fit before lunch time, thus she was sitting at a separate table from the rest of her friends. Soon lunch ended and all the children went outside to play, all except for Grace- she was still being punished. After a few minutes, I decided Grace had sat long enough. I went inside to talk to Grace. We came to a compromise- if she could tell what she did wrong I would let her get up and go outside and play.
I looked into her big brown eyes. She looked so confused, after all how could of she done anything wrong. Then tears came to her eyes. She shook her head and looked down in shame.

"Ok Grace tell me- what did you do wrong?"

"Miss Brooke, I'm, I'm just not filled with he Holy Ghost."

I tried desperately hard not to laugh. I was in shock- did she really just say she wasn't filled with the Holy Ghost?

"Your not filled with the Holy Ghost...???"

"No, I'm not Miss Brooke, but I hope to be filled one day. Because when you're filled fire comes on your head."

Well that was certainly an answer that in all my life I never ever expected to hear from a little five year old girl.
