Out of the Mouths of Babes - Trent's Team

Hello again readers!

These are some of the kids from the preschool that Kelly and I have been helping out at. We helped 2 days this past week. They are so energetic and joyful and the imaginations they have are astonishing! Featured in the pictures is a Star Wars ninja fight, where any water is death to their enemies & monsters(me,) and they have reviving powers and all sorts of crazy skills.

It’s crazy the things kids talk about sometimes. One of our topics at lunch, which can literally go anywhere, was sharing with others. But they were asking, can we share our eyes with so and so, or our ears, or heads, or hearts? And so on. Some of these things you don’t wanna share because then you would be dead, but we didn’t really explain that too deeply to them as they were just being silly. Then one of them asked if we can share our hearts with Jesus, and then instead of putting their friends names in where they could share things with, they started asking if they could share everything with Jesus. It was so cute but at the same time really made me think. These preschoolers have got it! Why not share our hands with Jesus, or have our eyes look through His tinting, or let Him in our hearts? These are just some questions that they prompted in me just because of their matter of fact way of asking, “why not?”

I know we all know this, but it was so refreshing to have it brought up by kids.

“…You have hidden these things from the wise and learned and revealed them to infants…” Luke 10:21

How much does our Father reveal to kids that we don’t wanna take, just because they’re kids?

This past weekend we also had family visit. It was a good time, just getting to know each other’s family and where we came from some more.

Anyway those are some thoughts from this week. Hope you enjoy!
