Spring is Teasing the Priaires

I know I am sharing numerous stories about Hailey, but children have a way of awakening the spiritual parts of my heart that have been dormant for a long time or at least it feels that way.

When Hailey arrived home from school, she asked if she could go out and splash in the water that is accumulating on the front street. As I am reading I can hear her singing, "Jesus is with me. Jesus is in my heart. Jesus is all around." With a splash, splash, in the water and chop, chop on the ice with her stick.

Oh to be five, splashing in spring water, sun shining down, digging in the snow, and singing about Jesus.

I need to get back to my reading...hope I did not bore anyone with my rambling.

Love to all...Robin who is enjoying the sunshine and melting snow.

Robin,

You certainly didn't bore me. I love children and think that must have sounded so sweet hearing Hailey sing that little song, especially about Jesus. Oh what a joy children are. What innocence. That brings a wide smile to my face :-D

If you have time, check out my postings for today. I have a surprise waiting for you there.

Hugs,
Alleluiabelle

Oh wow. Oh wow. I love this:

"Oh to be five, splashing in spring water, sun shining down, digging in the snow, and singing about Jesus."

Oh to be me at age 37, doing the same thing.

Bless you, dear one, for your insights.

Found you through Alleluiabelle, then saw the blessing of you on my site as well. God bless you!

Oh to be 48 and doing the same thing! I love splashing in the water with the sun kissing my face and heart.

Thanks for your comment...just what I need to lighten my spirits.
