On the other side of that first door on the left there is a little girl, calling my name. She is waiting for me to rescue her and provide a snack and some neck kisses and sweet hugs. Not necessarily in that order.
Her smile softens my heart on the daily and the sunshine in her own heart lights up my life more often than that.
Can she challenge me? Sure.
Was she a complete PILL at church tonight as we waited to get our ashes and begin this season of redemption? Yep.
But I chose to see past it and laugh a little and all the people around us smiled because she is just so full of joy and there is no denying it. So why should we? Even when she was doing her dance moves in the back of the church, full of God’s goodness.
I’m guessing He just wouldn’t mind…
