About angels in our midst

Monday, October 18, 2010

Mister God, This Is Anna by Fynn is a spectacular classic that can be read over and over again. It is amusing in parts because of the innocence of Anna’s speech and also very moving.

Fynn is all of sixteen when he comes across Anna, a tiny little homeless waif, four-years-old and doubly street smart. He takes her home to live with him and his mother along with the many other kids and animals they have adopted.

Fynn and Anna hit it off as great friends right from the start, and he notices that she is remarkably different from all the children and grown-ups around her. She has a prompt response to most of life’s tricky situations and her utterances are extremely wise. Fynn has documented all the wonderful things Anna said or did and she comes across as a little philosopher, a mathematician who finds the connection between numbers and life, a scientist who sees no contradiction between God and the tenets of science. As the child tells a local parson who asks her about God and going to church: ‘I know to love Mister God and to love people and cats and dogs and spiders and flowers and trees,’ and the catalogue went on, ‘- with all of me.’

“The difference from a person and an angel is easy. Most of an angel is in the inside and most of a person is on the outside.” Anna’s words are profound and she seems to be a child descended from heaven. There was a lot of speculation about whether Anna really existed or whether the story was the fascinating imagination of the writer who used the pseudonym Fynn. The language of the child is so wonderfully worded that readers are inclined to believe that Anna was someone in real life and not just the reward of Fynn’s amazingly human thought process.

Anna’s words go beyond religion and provide pleasant insights into life and happiness. This is a must read, with its equally moving sequel, Anna and the Black Knight, and is highly recommended for all, without exception.
