THE   CHILD   IN   ME!

Matt. 18:3 "And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.
4 Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.
5 And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me.
But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea."

Little children running,
Filled with glee are they;
Uninhibited and carefree,
All they want to do is play.

They laugh and shout,
Kick up their heels;
To them…all things are fun,
Roll in the grass…do cartwheels.

Their little hands do things to please,
A card to Mom and Dad they take;
Perhaps they clean up their rooms,
Or, even dinner…try to make.

They're so happy-go-lucky,
Why do we try to tie them down?
Make them so responsible,
They can no longer laugh…instead, they frown.

Many, long years later,
Our mistakes…we see;
We find ourselves so bound-up,
And, they…the same as we.

Now, we try so hard,
The child in us…to set free;
Let's STOP right now…evaluate,
Set things a'right…as they should be.

As a little child…I want to be,
Believing…trusting all;
The simplicity in Christ…to see,(2 Cor.11:3)
Not "BIG", in my own mind…but, like them…"small" !
