Very nice story! I could see the characters!
Oh, it was very good. I did have a bit of trouble trying to figure out Daniel's age. You wrote that he was a little boy, yet (in spite of his dialect, which was a nice touch) he spoke with the intelligence of someone much older. So, I know he was incorrigible, but was he precocious too? lol

The faith of a child! God said that the kingdom of heaven is made up of such as these. What a beautiful story of hope and faith:)

I enjoyed this! Really savored more than once the phrase - mud, and even that’s askin’ for a drink.”
Nice!
A 'down on the farm' charmer of a story! Cute character!

Very nice -good use of dialect (and did you notice the grits threads at the bboards? :)
I loved this! I especially liked the line: "I gots me lots a hope. It just bubbles up, and I don’t even ask it to,” :-)
What are grits? Sounds like something that gets stuck between your teeth not something that's "slippery and go down easier than cornbread"! Absolutely delightful story. Well done!
“If God can answer my prayers for all them thin’s don’t you think He could do something about the rain?” Funny, I said almost the exact same words to my mother this morning. Very well written and very enjoyable!
Just wonderful through and through. Reminds me a bit of Tom Sawyer. Excellent work! Congratulations. :)
