Who Knows One

My two-year old daughter woke up a little earlier than usual on the last day of Pesach. I brought her downstairs so we wouldn't make too much noise to allow my wife to sleep in a little bit longer. It had rained the previous night and everything outside was still wet. Looking out a living room window my daughter said, "Water went on the grass." I used her observation to inquire further:

"Yes, there is water on the grass. Who made it rain?"

"The clouds"

"Yes, but who made the clouds?"

"The sky"

"...and who made the sky?"


"I believe with perfect faith that G-d is the Creator and Ruler of all things. He alone has made, does make, and will make all things." - from Rambam's 13 Principles of Faith

You wove that together simply (would it be anything else?!) and beautifully.

What joy to hear them as they begin to understand Who is behind it all! It brought a smile to my face as I remembered many conversations with my son when he was young. Thanks!
