I had the chance to spend some real quality time with my kids this weekend, as Janet was away for the w/end at a conference. Sometimes I just can't take on board how blessed I am to have these two wonderful bundles of joy to keep me on my toes. They are so full of life - such funny little characters, who make me break open into a wide smile if I as much as think of them.
Some words of Jesus, from the Gospel of Matthew, as per The Message:
"I'm telling you, once and for all, that unless you return to square one and start over like children, you're not even going to get a look at the kingdom, let alone get in. Whoever becomes simple and elemental again, like this child, will rank high in God's kingdom. What's more, when you receive the childlike on my account, it's the same as receiving me.
