Anne replied: “If you take me where nobody will see us, then I shall come very willingly.”
“Then,” continued Michael, “we shall go to the dairy and there we can drink a whole cup of cream and no one will see us.”
“Oh, no!” exclaimed Anne, “the woodcutter can see us from the road.”
“Let us go to the kitchen, then,” said her brother, “in the cupboard there is a big bottle of honey.”
“There we can be seen by the woman next door who works near the window,” answered Anne.
“Then, let us go to the basement to eat those good apples,” said Michael, “it is very dark there and nobody will see us.”
But his sister said: “My dear Michael, do you really believe that nobody will see us there? Don’t you realize that there is a heavenly eye that sees through the thickest wall and even in the darkest of places?”
Michael became afraid and said: “You are right, dear sister, God can see us in every place, even in those places where no human eye can see. Therefore we shall not do any evil.”
Anne was very glad and happy that her brother had accepted her words and gave him a beautiful picture card.
God moves in a mysterious way
His wonders to perform;
He plants His footsteps in the sea
And rides upon the storm.
