Pastor’s Thoughts     March 2020

Throughout scripture we hear about the love of God, Neighbor and the World. We are challenged in scripture to accept love and to be love. Sometimes we struggle to understand exactly what the means. I want to offer these words of wisdom from a group of young children to you for our consideration. May their simple truths teach us about the true meaning of love.

“When my grandmother got arthritis, she couldn’t bend over and paint her toenails anymore. So my grandfather does it for her all the time, even when his hands got arthritis too. That’s love.”  Rebecca – age 8

“When someone loves you, the way they say your name is different. You just know that your name is safe in their mouth.”  Billy – age 4

“Love is what makes you smile when you’re tired.” Terri – age 4

“Love is when you kiss all the time. Then when you get tired of kissing, you still want to be together and you talk more. My Mommy and Daddy are like that. They look gross when they kiss.”  Emily – age 8

“Love is what’s in the room with you at Christmas if you stop opening presents and listen.” Bobby – age 7

“If you want to learn to love better, you should start with a friend who you hate.”  Nikka – age 6

“Love is like a little old woman and a little old man who are still friends even after they know each other so well.”  Tommy – age 6

“Love is when your puppy licks your face even after you left him alone all day.” Mary Ann – age 4

“You really shouldn’t say ‘I love you’ unless you mean it. But if you mean it, you should say it a lot. People forget.”  Jessica – age 8

And the final one…

Upon seeing the man cry, the little boy went into the old gentleman’s yard, climbed onto his lap, and just sat there. When his Mother asked what he had said to the neighbor, the little boy said, “Nothing, I just helped him cry.”

Peace,
Pastor Vic
