Such a precious gift tonight. We came out to find our neighbor children doing sidewalk art. That was beautiful in itself.

But when they said, “We did it for you!” my heart melted.

Where do we adults lose the joy of freely giving and freely receiving? We put much thought into what we give, when we give, and to whom we give.

We process whether it might be received with the gratitude and approval we think it should.

I wondered what would happen if I sat down in some of our neighbor’s driveways and drew them pictures from my heart. I wondered what would happen if I said to them with great enthusiasm, “I made it for you!”

Today I saw the pure Love of The Lord reflected in the gift of the children. He gives the way they do. He gives freely with no strings attached.

Look around His World and hear Him saying, “I made it for you!”

Jesus said, “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
