It’s an amazing thing how each day brings new joys, sights, sounds, and activities. Today I met two tiny little girls, Maliyah and Braelynn for the first time. Maliyah, 6, greets me with a studied look, and Braelynn, 4, offers barely a glance.
They are both busy welcoming their Papa home from having been in Colorado working on our house and getting it ready to sell. He has been away from these little ones and his family for 3 weeks. He is smothered with Downey golden curls, and soft velvety olive skin, as crystal clear green and blue eyes smile in adoration peeking shyly from underneath those butter-colored ringlets. To say Papa was missed is an understatement. They engulf him in love as only a child is capable of. I simply watch as this greatest gift unfolds. Giggles, toppling words, hugs, and play ensue. Their little world is so new that they bring Heaven to earth in their childlike trust and open hearts.
Again I am reminded of God’s Word to us in Matthew 18:3-5 “And he said: “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore, whoever takes the lowly position of this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. And whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me. While we aren’t asked to do the impossible or to be perfect, I’m reminded that we’re simply instructed to have the heart, love, and trust of a child toward our Father.”
