Claire, my youngest niece, on just a regular, normal day.
Children give us such wisdom and love. And we are privileged to be a part of their spiritual journey, reminding us how we, too, are children -- of God.
This little story has made the rounds on the internet and came to me from a good friend:
A kindergarten teacher was observing her classroom of children while they were drawing. She would occasionally walk around to see each child's work.
As she got to one little girl who was working diligently, she asked what the drawing was.
The girl replied, "I'm drawing God."
The teacher paused and said, "But no one knows what God looks like."
Without missing a beat, or looking up from her drawing, the girl replied,
"They will in a minute."
This collection of posts comes from my earlier blog and highlights the wisdom and wonder of our lives filled with childlike goodness, growing maturity, and pure, pure joy. It's because of children, we all know what God looks like.
