....today while reading an article from a magazine....I was struck...
Some living in abundance, some in lack....some with a wonderful Mother & Father...maybe a sibling..or two...or MORE!
Some with only a single parent...some left alone...or with a foster parent...or perhaps another substitute guardian.
Some living with 'perfect' health...other struggling with a difficult sickness...or perhaps a disability.
Some with the beauty that draws smiles from onlookers...others that draw smiles ONLY from those who can see them for WHO they really are :)
Some are generally happy and trustful...others seem bent on making life a whirlwind from the time they arrive!
Boys...and girls! Twins & other multiples...
Yet, one thing they have in common.
All needing unconditional love & acceptance.
A caring hand ....to help them....to guide them through this journey we call life.
Perhaps that's why Jesus never stopped the little ones from coming to Him...He said, "Bring them to Me."
I imagine children coming & cuddling on His lap, safe & content in His loving arms.
