THE MIND OF A CHILD – A Poem by Janet Reeve
What do we understand about the mind of a child?
We like the ones who are gentle, meek, reconciled
To our will.
Or do we?
Where is their character, where is their grit
Why should THEY into OUR mindset fit?
They aren’t like us and never will be,
They demonstrate that for all to see.
They don’t understand the concept of time,
They never know when to draw the line.
They go on & on & on till we want to scream
And send them away to the nearest play scheme…all day!
But when they look into our eyes and say “I love you”
How can you resist, how can you be cross or blue
When they look up with adoring eyes you say:
And I love YOU too!
While we are on the subject of Children……..
Please remember our JC Club, and the leaders, in your prayers. They work very hard preparing things for the children to learn about and make each Sunday and they never know how many children will come. It is a valued part of our church community.
If anyone would consider lending a hand on a rota – not necessarily leading a session – this would be a big help and support to the present leaders. Please have a word with them.
