The Way We See It

Most people cherish their childhood. Sadly to say, this isn't always true. When my late husband was almost 19 he worked as a tile and carpet installer. One day, on his lunch break, he took one of the company's recites, turned it over and wrote thrse words.

"There is nothing so wonderful as the world of a child. How I have wished that I could see things as innocent as a young child sees them. To a child, everything is so wonderful. A child wonders what makes the sun shine in the day and the stars at night. They wonder what makes the seed we plant in the ground turn into a beautiful flower.

Maybe the most highly educated person is but a child for, neither can he answer some of these questions.

A child can sometimes seem to find nothing but mischiveous things to do, and other times they seem to be angels. But, no matter what they do, there is nothing so wonderful as a child's world."

I'm not sure what inspired that piece. Perhaps he was reflecting on the difference between being at home where someone else earned the living and being an adult away from home and making his own way.

Both of us had rather happy childhoods. They had their ups and downs with just enough struggles to ready us for the day we married and set out on the road of our lives together.

Thinking about this made me realize that, for a child of God, all of our days on earth are like the childhood of eternity. We grow, we learn, we mature, and in some tomorrow, we'll be a bride.
