Big truths in small packages

There are perfectly complete spirits inside
those small, childish bodies we love,

They simply haven't the experience that comes of age.
But otherwise,
if you pay attention,
you will hear profound truths spoken
see the Divine encompassed in mortal weakness,
and know God a little better.

I got a letter today
from Clayton again.
He's a pretty perceptive fella, that manly spirit clothed in 8 years of body.

It read:

"...I'm glad you're part of our family Mom - even when you're grouchy"

And it's humbling.
because he knows me.

I can't even pretend they (my children) don't see my sin.
Yet their grace keeps reaching out
and forgiving my faults
and wanting me around.
Their love does not put conditions on me.

I'm thankful for that - so grateful!
And glad I know
the Lord is that way too.

It's not hard to understand why God tells us to become like a little child. Their innocence, grace, forgiveness, love and faith is so encouraging.
