Its morning the last week of school
we enter our great outdoors in the front yard
I retreat away on the porch with bible in hand
the morning sunrays bathing us in warmth
This little man just got this new bike
I told him that He was getting too big for his tricycle
and that we would be getting him a new bike soon
His answer was always…..WHEN?
For two weeks he asked when …. busy days
school, church, dad working long hours…
and he waited THEN ONE DAY I spotted this red bike at a garage sale
and it fit well, I called his dad and he said go for it
This little man was so happy smiling from ear to ear
clapping his hands saying
“ See Mom! See! When you wait patiently and with a good attitude you get excitement…”
The joy comes….in the morning
As soon as we got that bike home, he took his tricycle next door to the
little girl that lives there and gave that tricycle away!
God gave and he this little man naturally let go of the old and embraced the new
This morning he sang in the sunshine with arms wide open over and over
I LOVE THE SUN!….I LOVE THE SON!
