This is a supposedly a true story from a song by John Michael Montgomery. Even if it's not true, it surely could be! This story gives me goosebumps and brings tears to my eyes. Lets hope it has that affect on all who read it!!

There was an atheist couple who had a child. The couple never told their daughter anything about the Lord.

One night when the little girl was 5 years old, the parents fought with each other and the dad shot the Mom, right in front of the child. Then, the dad shot himself.The little girl watched it all.

She then was sent to a foster home. The foster mother was a Christian and took the child to church. 

On the first day of Sunday School, the foster mother told the teacher that the girl had never heard of Jesus, and to have patience with her.

The teacher held up a picture of Jesus and said, "Does anyone know who this is?"

The little girl said, "I do, that's the man who was holding me the night my parents died."

Here are the lyrics to the song by John Michael Montgomery

The Little Girl

Her parents never took 
the young girl to church
Never spoke of his name
Never read her his words
two non believers 
walking lost in this world
Took their baby with them
what a sad little girl

Her daddy drank all day
and her mommy did drugs
Never wanted to play
or give kisses and hugs
She'd watch the t.v.
and sit there on the couch
As her mom fell asleep
and her daddy went out
And the drinking and the fighting
just got worse every night
Behind their couch she'd be hiding
oh what a sad little life

And like it always does 
the bad just got worse
With every slap
and every curse
Until her daddy
in a drunk rage one night
Took a gun to her mom
and then took his life
And some people from the city
took the girl far away
To a new mom and a new dad 
kisses and hugs every day

First day at Sunday school
the teacher walked in
And a sad little girl
stared at a picture of him
She said I know that man
there on the cross
I don't know his name
but I know he got off
Cause he was there in my old house
held me close to his side
As I hid there behind our couch
the night that my parents died

Matthew 18:
1  At the same time came the disciples unto Jesus, saying, Who is the greatest in the
    kingdom of heaven?

2  And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them, 
3 And said, Verily I say unto you,Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye
   shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. 

4 Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the
    kingdom of heaven. 

5  And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me. 
6  But whoso shall offend one of theselittle ones which believe in me, it were better for him
    that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of
    the sea.
