a child

"I was visiting once in a wealthy home, where there was a little adopted child, upon whom was lavished all the love and tenderness and care that human hearts could bestow, or human means procure. And as I watched that child running in and out day by day, free and light-hearted, with the happy carelessness of childhood, I thought what a picture it was of our wonderful position as children in the house of our Heavenly Father.

"This life of faith, then, about which I am writing, consists in just this - being a child in the Father's house."

- Hannah Whitall Smith, The Christian's Secret of a Happy Life, pp 21-22.
