Since Thanksgiving is coming up I have decided to post one thing that I am thankful each day in the month of November!
Today I am thankful for......
Children and their sweet spirits!
Today I was with two families who I adore and their children are the most precious souls that I have ever met. The little boy said to me and my companion "Sister Missionaries...I love you Sister Missionaries!" The other families little girl always gives us big hugs. Both of them always have huge smiles on their faces when we come by.
Isn't it amazing how quick children are to love? They love everyone no matter what they have done in their past or how much money they have. Not only do they love but they show that love and it is always sincere.
Can you imagine what the world would be like if we were all more like a child?
The scriptures mention multiple times the attributes of children and how they reflect the attributes of our savior. This is one of my personal favorites:
"19 For the natural man is an enemy to God, and has been from the fall of Adam, and will be, forever and ever, unless he yields to the enticings of the Holy Spirit, and putteth off the natural man and becometh a saint through the atonement of Christ the Lord, and becometh as a child, submissive, meek, humble, patient, full of love, willing to submit to all things which the Lord seeth fit to inflict upon him, even as a child doth submit to his father."-Mosiah 3:19
I love, love, LOVE this video! It just shows you how precious the little children are to our savior Jesus Christ.
I am so thankful for the example children are to me! What a blessing and what a miracle!
