Zoe picked up and hugged each item she received and gently placed them back down. She picked up the brightly colored pony book, climbed up into the oversized couch, opened the book and began to read word by word. She stopped, stuck on a word. Jared came alongside her, put his big brother arm around her and helped her sound it out. “You got it right Zoe, good job!”. Jared taught, Zoe learned.
After she finished reading her book, Zoe set all the presents in a line on the living room table. Her eyes moved back and forth and a smile formed as she looked over the assortment of items. There were books, clothes, toy horses, hair pieces, and birthday cards. She walked around the table and ran her fingers lightly over each item. As she walked her eyes became wide and tears began to gently roll down her cheeks. “Mommy, God is so good to me.” Zoe shared, we learned.
Children are a gift from God to us. We can be taught so much by observing how they view the world, how they interact. They are not weighed down by the heaviness of this life. They can hear the still small voice of God as He speaks. They know how to listen, how to laugh, how to live in the joy of the moment.
Jesus taught us that in order to be one of His, we need to become like little children. I am so thankful I have Jared and Zoe in my life to remind me of how Jesus says it to be. Allow yourself to take a chance, to dance in the puddles of life, to enjoy each moment.
Always remember, a child shall lead them.
