Little children absolutely love making something special for their moms on Mother's Day.
They are so anxious, they rarely wait until the holiday to bestow their gifts.
Wanting to please their mother, they give the special love filled gift to her waiting in anticipation for smiles, hugs and praise in return for their handiwork.
Sometimes we forget the significance of the innocence we once carried as children.
While Jesus was explaining the Kingdom of Heaven, the future, and hope to his disciples, he tells them, "Truly I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the Kingdom of Heaven. Whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven." Matthew 18:3-4.
So have that child-like faith, go hug your child and remember these words of Jesus.
