One day my little grandson Noah came over to play in the yard. He said to me, "Pap-paw come and play ball with me, and I told him I was too busy. You know I can't even remember what I was doing that day, but I still remember the disappointment on his face because I did not play with Him and I hope and pray that God will grant be the insite to see from now on.
I don't know who wrote the below points, but although they are short, they are great! Remember Jesus stated that we could not enter into the Kingdom unless we become as little children.

When many of us look at a patch of dandelions, most see a bunch of weeds that are going to take over our yard. Our kids see flowers for Mom and blowing white fluff that flys high into the sky.
When many of us look at an old drunk and he smiles at us, many people see a smelly, dirty person who probably wants money and we look away. our kids see someone smiling at them and they smile back and wave.
When many of us hear music we love, but we know we can't carry a tune and don't have much rhythm so we sit self-consciously and listen. Our kids feel the beat and move to it. They sing out the words. If they don't know them, they make up their own.
When many of us feel wind on our face, we brace ourself against it. Many feel it messing up their hair and pulling them back when they walk. our kids close their eyes, spread their arms and fly with it, until they fall to the ground laughing.
When we see a mud puddle, we step around it. We see muddy shoes and clothes and dirty carpets. Our kids sit in it. They see dams to build, rivers to cross and worms to play with.
In God's wisdom He gave us kids; not only to teach, but to be taught! No wonder God loves the little children!!
May God Bless you all.
