I always loved being reminded great truths about God while working with children. This was published a little differently in "Write for Him: The Story of GGFG" Available on http://www.amzn.com/1300504730
"The lid on this marker is hard to get back on, and it's even hard
for me, and I'm a lot bigger than you," I told a little 2 and a half
year old. She laughed and said, "Yeah!"
I still felt bad,
because she is a little disabled, and I didn't want her to think it was
her lacking. So, I said, "It's just hard to get back on so it's not just
you" and she got real serious and said, "Why?"
I didn't know why... what did she hear when I said that? So I just told her, "Because it is so tight, too tight."
Sometimes I feel like life is like getting that marker cap back on.
I can try several different ways, and I still don't have the strength to do it on my own.
watched as this little girl looked inside the marker cap to make sure
it was the right end she was trying. See, she understood a lot about how
it was supposed to work.
Sometimes I think I get life.
But then the cap won't go on still yet. :)
