Innocent Children

If you ever spend quality time with your children, you will realize that you know so little about them, yet they know so much about you.

If you just spend a little more time with your children, you will be surprised at how much you can learn.

When you draw near to your children....
  • They will yearn for your attention.
  • They will touch you, hold you, and hug you to tell you how much you mean to them.
  • They will wait attentively to what you have to say without interrupting.
  • They will look at you in the eyes. You have their full attention no matter what you say or do.
  • They will answer you promptly the moment you ask them.
  • And they will speak sweetly, softly yet audibly to you.
  • They will do all your biddings.

When your children do wrong...
  • Their speech is always so simple yet so true.
  • They will disclose to you all the truths.
  • They are never good in making up stories. They will giggle or hide their hands behind their back the moment they are discovered... or they will be scared and start to cry.
  • And they will say how sorry they are and try to make amends.

When you play or joke with your children...
  • They never fail to laugh heartily.
  • They laugh and laugh without reserve, and they never fail to make you laugh even if you try to control yourself.
  • Their laughter disperses all your toils and troubles.
  • And you can really feel the joy and love of your home.

When you bring your children somewhere...
  • They never fail to look up to you.
  • They will not let go of your hands even if you try to.
  • They will follow closely to you until they are sleepy and tired. Then they will urge you to carry and yearn for your hug as you continue your journey. And they will rest and sleep on your shoulder knowing they can rely on you.
When you see your children grow....
  • They will never give up their struggles.
  • They may fall often but they will never fail to stand up.
  • They may make many mistakes but they will never fail to make amends.
  • They will always try to perfect their knowledge and skills.

Never look down on your children. They are your inspiration. And the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to such as these. The children learn to trust 100% upon their Heavenly Father.

How about you?

I love this list.

I do have to say, though, that my kids are always interrupting me... even though we are very close.
