Seeing the ways as children

Children see things around them we adults have forgotten. They laugh at little things. A small bug on the sidewalk can cause them to stop, lay down, and watch it cross the sidewalk.
Children love the word "surprise". They have good expectations of what is coming. They believe impossible things. They live on the wings of hope. They know that more and better can come. They have that little grain of faith in something bigger and greater and more wonderful than they see. They sympathize over another's hurt knee. They really care when someone, anyone hurts. They feel deeply.

Children are humble and grateful. God, please grant us, the eyes of a child once again.
