The Grace of Little Children

Without a doubt, the following brief slide show demonstrates the sweetest, most heartfelt event I have attended so far during this miraculous season. The pure joy on the faces of these children makes me want to weep all over my keyboard. The grace and love of the innocent, yet so very faithful, never ceases to amaze me.

Ok, so I actually DID "weep all over my keyboard." Makes me think of my sweet Granny who died 2 years ago in December. She was living in a nursing home at 96. She and all the residence absolutely loved it when I took my kids around. I loved looking at the kids faces in the video, but to know what joy it brought in the hearts of those elderly men and women is what really got me. They were all young once too, and they just got a glimpse again of that sweet innocence in the heart of a child. LOVED IT!

Thanks for capturing that moment for me! I was so sad I couldn't be there for that event. I had to work and was unable to experience our babies reaching out to others. Ab said it was really sweet...

"Master, what are you talking about? When did we ever see you hungry and feed you, thirsty and give you a drink? And when did we ever see you sick or in prison and come to you?" Then the King will say, "I'm telling the solemn truth: Whenever you did one of these things to someone overlooked or ignored, that was me—you did it to me." Matt 25:37-40 (MSG)

Too many times these precious people do get overlooked and ignored...I am thankful that our kids are being taught the value in reaching out and blessing others out of the abundance of our own hearts.
Again, thanks for the pixs.
