Blessings of Children at Play

Counting blessings each week is a blessing in itself.  I could easily revert back to remembering all of the difficulties and problems but instead I make the choice to treasure those everyday blessings.  It's all a matter of what you focus on, isn't it?

Sometimes I need reminders.  I get up very early in the morning to have my quiet time and to write.  I really want to get my exercise in too.  But I have to admit there are days when I miss out.

At our school the children have PE twice a week.  It is so cute to see three year old children learning how to do jumping jacks and to skip and gallop.  They have many opportunities to exercise and to simply play.

While the other children were following directions, little Will was doing his own thing.  I had to laugh!

#208  Watching little Will turn upside down

The children are also learning to exercise their minds.  They learn new site words each week.  A few of the words include "the", "and", etc.  They get to take home little books that include these words so they can read them to their families.

#209 Little children eager to learn at they sit at the word wall. 

#210  Max and Evan are becoming fast friends and have fun playing together

#211 Little hands and feet are so precious to me, especially when they have band-aids on their boo boo's

I learn so much from little children.  How often do we adults get to play?  Life seems so serious.  Yes, we have responsibilities but I think it's important to take some time to simply enjoy life.

My husband and I are both learning this from my work.  I wrote a blog post on Saturday entitled It's All Grace.  In case you  missed it, you can read it here.  I shared a bit about my journey that God has taken me on to learn many important lessons.

In the meantime, I continue to count my blessings and to link up with Ann of A Holy Experience.

Blessings and love,

I also choose to give my worries to Him and when I saw your post "blessing" especially the word "children" I had to come here right away...It's just awesome what we hear from kids. It's a different joy they bring with their innocence and their "honesty" can bring us laughter sometimes.

I can't even imagine the things you are learning from them, kids who mean a lot to Jesus and Who wants us to have that childlike faith like theirs. Thank you for sharing one of your precious mem'ries with them and bringing us the "blessing through them" on this Monday morning. May I remember the joy that comes from small things like children and simplicity like their honest ways. God bless and have a great week ahead sister Debbie. Thank you for encouraging me. My son like me? No! Glory be to God! :)

are a great place to start! they do not
even need to be our own, to be blessed
by them. thanks for the reminder to
COUNT them!

It is all about "choice" ... I choose to see the blue skies, I choose to see the fluffy white clouds, I choose to see the Promises of God to me his daughter, I choose to accept his reproof and corrections in my life...choice....I agree it is a choice I have been given

Oh my goodness... that is just too cute to see them in PE! lol Adorable! Such a wonderful gift to witness their growth in so many areas. They can teach us so much!

Oh the blessing of getting to watch children learn. They are too cute at this age. I am learning to see how truly blessed I am these days. God is so good.

We all can learn so much from watching, yes we all need to play and it would relieve us of stress...and we need to skip and giggle.

Your pictures are just great Debbie!!
