A beautifully vivid presentation of simple truth. God is good and a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. With a heart-warmed smile I say... well done!
AH! The faith of a child and the love of God. What a combination. Together you have a keeper. Thank you for such a sweet story.
Love it! Sitting with tears in my eyes like I am the mom watching the joy that a childs faith brings.
What at first appeared to be 'much ado about nothing'
actually illicited such faith in the little girl that God responded by returning her beloved fowl.

I like the 'showing' of the difference in the faith of the adults and faith of the child.

What a beautiful story and a wonderful testimony of what Jesus taught us about having the faith of a child. The little girl refused to believe give up hope and she turned to the only One who could help her--Jesus, our risen Savior. Thanks for this literary blessing.

great story :-) i loved the setting the way you started and the ending .... it is interesting that two people chose chicken tales this week and how different they are but both lovely. you are a gifted writer and this is a winning piece in my opinion... cant think of any way to improve it tbh unless you made the title more chicken centred :-)
I love this story. I knew the ending because the exact thing happened to my pet hen when I was a teen. I didn't have the faith of the little girl though. This is a good lesson.
