Honest Kids

legs-216618_640Little kids crack me up. They are so honest, sometimes brutally so….and if you have been on the receiving end of that brutality you are not sure whether to scold, laugh or cry.

They cry when they hurt. They scream when they are mad. They yell when someone aggravates them. Fear will often drive them into their parent’s beds at night.

When I was in the classroom I had many honest questions. Some wondered why I had those weird lines at the corner of my eyes? I was once asked why I looked so much like a grandma and yet did not have any grandchildren?

I think that is how the Father wants us to be with Him. Honest. Brutally so. Nothing surprises Him….I mean after all, this is the Creator of the Universe.matthew-19_14

But I cry when I am hurt, I sometimes scream when I am mad. And if you aggravate me, I might even yell (ask my husband). And when I am scared….I run to my Daddy, my Abba Father. Yes, I do ask honest questions.

God Almighty loves me. He created me and He wants me to be honest with Him. After all, He already knows what I am thinking doesn’t He?

Just as if I was a little kid.

And I really am…… Him.

I love Jesus. If I say nothing else, that is enough. But for those curiosity seekers, I am a 60 year old former special education teacher, current part time CCM Radio Announcer and author... who is married to her high school sweetheart. We have been together for 44 years, married almost 41 of those years! We have raised two sons, who are now married, have jobs and mortgages. AND...we became grandparents to a beautiful baby girl in 2018!! We also have our furry son, a West Highland Terrier. My heart's desire is to encourage people in their daily life. I believe that the Father speaks to us all the time, sometimes I have been too busy to listen. Even during times of trials and troubles, which seem endless right now in 2020, HE is present and loves us unconditionally. Thanks for reading. ~Be Encouraged Today~

One thought on “Honest Kids

  1. Their honest expressions are so refreshing and I love their lack of pretense. Sometimes I wish I could be childlike.
