Ernest walked up to Kendall's step dad, laid his head on his leg, and stood there in 'hug position' for a solid five minutes. His step dad had recieved a lung transplant February of 2010 and when this picture was taken, he was having a hard time breathing.
How do children know these things? It brings tears to my eyes the thought of such grace, mercy, and unconditional love that children posess. Why can't grown ups be as merciful? Or merrily kind enough to put a hand on one's shoulder when in need? What happens between toddler and adult?
Every day, my kids wake up with smiles. They look to me like I'm God right hand man. Most nights I go to bed thinking of what I did wrong, what I could do better, or how I can fix things in the morning (parenting and life alike).
Lord, help me to show Your unrelenting love to others. The kind that can only come from You.
