child5A young girl asked her father following the church service “Dad, is God going to die?”

“Of course not, God can’t die,” replied her father. “Why do you ask?”

The girl answered, “The Pastor kept saying that God’s will was being done.”

quote 1930

"The strength of the church is not the strength of its institutions but the authenticity of its witness."

- Leonard Sweet

boy sittingThe world is an adventure,
there's so many things to see,
the search for buried treasure,
climbing high up in a tree.

Finding shells along the seashore,
playing marbles in the sand,
skipping stones across a pond,
throwing as far as you can.

Playing a game of hide and seek,
way back out in the woods,
pretending you're a robber,
and stealing all the goods.

Wading barefoot in a creek,
and trying to catch a frog,
or going to your favorite park,
and playing Frisbee with your dog.

And as I sit and wonder,
it comes as no surprise,
how little things can seem so big,
seen through a child's eyes.

quote 1929

"Some people could be given an entire field of roses, and only see the thorns in it. Others could be given a single weed and only see the wildflower in it. Perception is a key component to gratitude. And gratitude is a key component to joy."
