Simple Faith: Be like the children

Children have the power to remind us what freedom feels like.

With playfulness,


and chubby-cheeked foolishness,

they’re constantly inviting us

to fall back in love with innocence.

If we follow their lead,

they can gently guide us back into the essence of who we were created to be.

Our hearts can thaw …

We can rediscover our authenticity …

We can live and love ever more fully.

When we don’t allow them to resurrect our spirits,

we run a risk of burying theirs.

Let’s wake up together,

accepting one sweet gift at a time. (49)
