An Old Fashioned Girl

4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. 

I have come to love the young country girl Polly who comes to visit her city cousin Fanny.   In very gentle and quiet ways she shows her worldly relatives how to live 1 Corinthians.  This is one of my top favorite stories.  If you have little girls it would make a wonderful read-aloud.
