We Are Blessed

We are blessed

I am sharing this with you today because this man has deeply touched my heart, and he is amazing with our church children.

He is my counselor

He is my mentor

He is an up-lifter

He is an awesome leader

He is my idol

And I want to be just like him when I grow up.....

Children: Special, priceless, our future...

Teach them

Impress them

Lead them

Show them

Mold them



This minister that has just recently entered our church has been an amazing positive for our church family.

I can see the changes happening right before my very eyes.

It is obvious that he loves children. You can see it in his teachings, talking, and feelings.

He does not rush, he is very patient, funny, and the children love his lessons, treats, and props.
The children of the church look forward to the special time that they get to spend with this man (minister, leader, and up-lifter).

And I do believe there are some adults that look forward to the sharing time with children. I hear much laughter coming from the congregation pews.....OOPS!! Was I suppose to print that?

He places himself with the children, for the children, and beside the children. As you can see, he rises to his knees right along with them. They adore him....

"Therefore, whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. And whoever welcomes a little child like this in my name welcomes me."
Matthew 18:4-5
"Jesus said, "Let the children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.""
Matthew 19:14
