My wife and I don’t have any children (yet…but who knows…God willing someday) so we don’t have art work from children gracing our refrigerator. But recently a couple of my Sunday school kids have been giving me some artwork. Below are two pictures I received last night at Wednesday Night Live( Sunday school). As I receive these pictures they get taped to my office door…
…And I tell you something (and you parents out there probably can relate to this) it is such a wonderful feeling to receive something from a child that you know they put their heart and soul into. These two little girls were so excited to give me these pictures that it melted my heart. I have others on my door from other children that mean just as much to me.
I don’t have much of a theological reflection of this other than to say that as a pastor I am so excited to have developed relationships with these kids (and others). I hope I can use these relationships to be a positive influence in their lives…supporting what their families are doing.
I thank God everyday for this congregation and for the children. They have a powerful way of warming my heart.
Praise be to God!
