Like Children

I love this picture
It speaks of how things might be with us and our God
We do our clumsy best out of love for Him
He looks through our awkward ineptitude into our hearts
And sees us differently, and better
And loves us dearly.

The photo reminds me of one of my favourite books: Mister God this is Anna, by Fynn. Have you read it? Truly gorgeous book and I would reccomend the world to read it!

@ IVNB - YES!!
I have read it - a couple of times.
I love it too: in fact, I have it.

Remember how Anna loved seeds and used to collect pocketfulls of them and scatter them around.
They became a kind of testimony to her after she was gone: all those beautiful flowers growing in grubby dismal surroundings.
A bit like her, and her life.

Thanks for reminding me of her.
I think I'm going to reread it.

Yes, I remember! Oh, its fantastic that you have read it! I don't know many who have:-( And it really is an awesome book. To be honest, I reread it quite regularly, just last year in fact... My favourite is how she sees Mr God in absolutely everything. I think I should read it to my daughter:-)
Enjoy the reread;-)
