Words of a Little Child

A Grandma's Point of View - Janiece Self

I’m writing today, however, about a blessing and not a curse that my 21 month old granddaughter shared with us. We were visiting my parents; they are 87 and 85 and always welcome little and big visitors alike. In their kitchen on a wall next to a cupboard and table area is a picture of “Grace,” the peddler praying over his meal. As we were just spending time together, I suddenly noticed my granddaughter stop, look at the wall, and say as clear as a bell, “he is praying.” Wow!! Not only did she say it clearly, but she knew by looking at her face that she also understood what she was saying. They were wonderful words too me. Proverbs 15:26b says, “but the words of the pure are pleasant words.” Yes they were pleasant words and I know God was pleased. It was also a reminder for me to keep it simple in word and thought, as a child sees and believes. Luke 18:17; “Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the Kingdom of God as a little child shall in no wise enter therein.”
