This a.m. I arrived a few minutes early to pick up Liam from school. As I stood outside his classroom I looked up at the sky and in a moment of peace I praised God for the beauty of the sky. My mind reflected back to childhood when I spent time absorbing the magnificence of the sky whilst looking for similarity of the clouds to tangible things I could identify.

"Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these". Mark 10:14

On the drive home it occurred to me how children take such wonder and amazement at all they see and how adults rush from one task to the next viewing their responsibilities as a check list.

Lord, this year I want to come to you as a child to learn and to grow. May I not rush from task to task, but savor these days with the children, husband and day to day responsibilities.

What a beautiful thought! Your words took me back to the times when we would play, "What do you see?" as kids. It's a lovely memory, and I think on the next day of fluffy clouds, I will take my boys out for a look!
