Reason to SMILE #172: A GIFT FROM A CHILD
Wednesdays, I think, are my favorite day of the week because I get to have fun at Kids Central, the children’s ministry at my church. Our biggest group of kids attend the mid-week activities and I love seeing each and every one of them. Wednesday nights are jam-packed with music, skits, games, snacks, crafts and, of course, Bible study. It’s organized chaos at it’s finest. Did I mention how fun it is?
Tonight was no different. A whole lotta kids, a whole lotta chaos and a whole lotta fun. But my SMILE actually came before the evening activities kicked off. A sweet little girl, who had arrived early, walked up to me with a package of sorts and said, “I made this for you.” Anytime this happens, I can’t help but SMILE but as I opened her precious gift, my heart soared.

Hover over the pictures for a “translation”. 😉 There was a message on the inside of the main envelope (top right picture). It says, “I love you and God is awesome and Jesus is awesome and you are awesome too and I wish church is every day. Good bye.”
This is a SMILE worth treasuring!
