HOPE FOR THE FUTURE

August 16, 2016

Tiny feet

Scampering about,

Carry a wee one

Full of promise!

From such as this

Once was born

A Savior!

AS SUMMER VACATIONS BECOME MEMORIES …

August 14, 2016

Lord, you offer us

a foretaste of heaven

as we stumble through this world.

Let us taste its sweetness today

as we walk

side by side with you.

THE RHUBARB PIE PARABLE – ANOTHER TINY TEACHER

August 5, 2016

I, like most of you, have been thinking a lot about the sad and frightening news stories of late.  They seem to grow in number.  I love children and the ones I listen to give me hope for the future.  This is my second tiny teacher post in two days . . . perhaps a series is coming!

 

I recall this conversation, but not the source. . . still, it needs sharing!

CHILD:  Daddy, what’s sin?

(Daddy explains)

CHILD:  Then why would people choose to sin?

DADDY:  I guess some people crave sin like others crave rhubarb pie!

CHILD:  I don’t like rhubarb pie!

DADDY:  Me either!

TINY TEACHER . . . “STILL A BEAR!”

August 4, 2016

We often shake out heads and mutter “oh, the world today . . . ”  or the other phrase, “these kids today . . . ”  I think,and the Bible urges, that we MUST be like the children to positively change the world . . .

Grandma read a book to her littlest granddaughter, then this conversation started:

Child: Grandma. I’m beige.
Grandma: I guess so.
Child: You’re beige too.
Grandma: Yep
Child: Grandpa is dark beige.
Grandma: Yep. People come in all different colors.
Child: Like bears. Right?
Grandma: Right.
Child: But they’re still all bears.
Grandma: Yes they are.

Thanks, Grandma Gerrie!


Message From A Child On Peace

July 25, 2016

The following quote HAS to shared.  In the enlightened times where we still hear of cruel political figures and both random and mass shootings often from misdirected CHILDREN, let this and our faith in the Lord give us joy and hope!

 

Think of all the beauty still left around you and be happy.

– Anne Frank –

What Children Teach Us

December 19, 2013

We teach children how to measure and how to weigh. We fail to teach them how to revere, how to sense wonder and awe. – Harold Kushner

Jesus told us we must be like children.  There is much to learn from them.

Psalm 8:1-5

King James Version (KJV)

8 O Lord, our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth! who hast set thy glory above the heavens.

2 Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast thou ordained strength because of thine enemies, that thou mightest still the enemy and the avenger.

3 When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained;

4 What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him?

5 For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour.

What does faith look like?  Do you seek to see His face?  Do you desire an image of love of and for the Lord in a powerful way?  It looks like a child . . .
