Seeing God in the Children

Children are a gift from God in so many ways.
They remind us of our calling in life, to live in the truth of God,
to serve, to nurture, to love, and to forgive.

If we could only have the faith of a child, without ulterior motives, without fear.

To just want to be loved and to love with all of our hearts........

The be a child and to want to please others just for the sake of making others happy.

To find joy in bringing joy to someone else.

To run through life in complete happiness, only to fall asleep when tired from living in the joy of life, only to awaken refreshed, and then to run again, finding the good in everything and everyone around us.....

With the exception of my teenage son (Sean), the three beautiful children pictured above belong to my cousin Nancy who lives with her family in North Dakota. (We miss you)
