A Boy's Compassion

There was a boy who lived with his family on a farm. The farm had an icehouse, where produce was stored.

One day, the boy noticed that a family of wrens was trapped in the building. He opened the doors to coax the birds out, but oddly, they refused. The boy was very worried about them, because it was so cold in the icehouse.

That night, he knelt at his bedside and prayed, “God bless all the little chilled wrens.”
