Playtime

Let little children
run up and down as they please
play before their God.

“Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”  Matthew 19,14

    My life’s challenge – to let the child, that never was, come out to play! I am always delighted to see those who indeed allow this to flow freely, as I believe it was intended. Thank you for this uplifting, loving and touching creation. Thank you for sharing! ~becca~
