Short and to The Point

While at the playground with my grandchildren, I couldn’t help but think of all the negative in this world they are surrounded by. I snapped this shot of my youngest grandson who is 17 months and wonder what will it be like for him and his brother in the next five, ten or fifteen years from now. 

It is imperative for adults, that includes me and you…to be more involved with the youth of today. When naked truths are exposed and it takes the courage of young people to step up, something is terribly wrong in our culture. Those who are not conversant in the lives of our children should not be surprised as to what they may do. Those who set poor examples of behavior for our children need to stop. Children live and breathe by our behavior. Our children are always watching. Our children are always listening. 

Children are valuable. Even though they are unfinished in life,

they still make our society a whole.

Please share your thoughts. Let’s talk…

If Words Could Make Wishes Come True

Childhood

One of my greatest longings and desires …

I wish that all children will one day come to know the unconditional love of the Father who knew and loved them before they ever came into existence.

…but I know what Love is…

 

“….I’m not a smart man, but I know what love is…”

and then Forrest turns, walks to the front door with his hand resting on his hip

as he stares out at the night.

Since the world seems to be focusing on love today,

I thought I would describe what real, true love looks like.

LOVE

Is the patient

Is Kind

It does not envy

It does not boast

It is not proud

It is not rude

It is not self-seeking

It is not easily angered

It keeps no record of wrongs

Love does not delight in evil, but rejoices with the truth.

It always protects. Always trusts.

Always hopes. Always perseveres.

LOVE NEVER FAILS.

1 Corinthians 13:4-8

We are all much like Forrest Gump, looking for love and sometimes find disappointment. Love is a funny thing. We all have our own definition and expectation of what “love is” but do we really honestly know?  May we all dig a little deeper and look beyond the feeling and get to the “heart” ♥ of it all.

F.Y.I.  The photo above was taken with my cell phone by a toddler sitting on my lap while I work. Isn’t life great?
