I've spent the past week doing the opening for our Vacation Bible School. What a blessing! Looking into each of the children's faces I've witnessed sheer joy and faithful expectation. I am always humbled by the trust that children experience. Adult life can chip away at exuberance and make one cynical. Spending time with these young ones heals my heart and mind.
As you look at the children's images below, prayerfully remember moments in your childhood when you experienced that kind of joy and faithful expectation. Soak in the memory, and feel the experience wash over you anew. Let the Holy Spirit bring joy and expectation back to your life today.
