Wanting A Child’s Eternity.
I saw a little child the other day, Lord. I looked intently at him. This was no mere glance-in-his-direction kind of look. It was a long and thoughtful look. The child was humming an unrecognizable tune. A moment later he was caressing an old worn stick with his stub by little fingers. There was no worry or stress on his face, only the complete absorption in that moment’s discovery. Time seemed to stand still for this little child. Past, present, and future all seemed to be compressed between his little fingers. Eternity was in his hands. O Lord, I want to find that stick and hum that tune. I want the kind of face that little child had.
