* Reposted from 2009 (Holy Moley! Five years ago!) Gabe is a big ole 9-year-old now, and though he's matured to be a little more sober and sedate, he's still the joy he was as a 4-year-old. Look at him, though. These pictures do make me smile! And the contemplation at the end is one I'm still working on. Praying for joy and trust! What more can we ask for here on this earth?
To have no regrets about the past, no worries about what might lie ahead.
To live 100% in the moment.
To laugh and play,
to learn and teach,
to love and be loved,
to spread joy by your mere existence.
To understand and enjoy perfect trust and contentment.
Is this what the saints did? How do we get back to that? How can we actually become "as little children" again? Is there a way to keep our children "as little children" through their growing up years?
Just thought I'd throw the questions out there. These are the things I'm contemplating tonight. What do you think?
