It is such a blessing to witness the look of excitement and triumph when a little child learns something for the first time.
If only more adults could learn from children. Persistence and practice takes time but ends up with results.
The children were so excited when a visitor came into our room. Heidi's dad is a retired fireman. He was so kind and patient with the children as he explained that firefighters were their friends. His instructions were clear and the children got to try on his helmet, boots and other pieces of equipment. It was such a fun day for them.
No matter how far I believe I've come in my spiritual walk, I learn how much I need prayer. During the service, the pastor asked if anyone needed prayer would they raise their hand. In the midst of seeking those everyday blessings, I still have moments that are very challenging and uncertain. I recognize my need for the Lord and the prayers of others.
As the pastor prayed, many hands were touching my back and arms. I began to wipe tears from my eyes as I felt the love and support from others. What a blessing that was for me to experience.
