A Child's Love

There are no words to describe just how precious children are.

The Lord has been so gracious and kind to me. Although I was not blessed with children of my own, I have been given the honor of teaching young hearts and minds for over 20 years. Through their eyes of faith, their honesty, and their joy of life, I have grown deeper in my own relationship with the Lord.

One of my favorite songs is the song, "A Child's Love" by Bryan Duncan. Today, I want to encourage you to allow the love of your Heavenly Father to once again re-create a child's love in your own heart.

A Child's Love by Bryan Duncan

I see the pages fall from the calendar
Like the leaves falling from the trees
Feel a chill in the fear of the future
As I weather this autumn breeze

I watch my red-haired inspiration
Playing games out on the lawn
Such an innocent joy of living
He's his father's only son

Don't let me live without a child's love
Like the love in this child of mine
Teach me, dear Lord, to have a love for you
A child's love

I let the changes in my season
Steal the passion from my heart
Like the roses fade in the winter
All the petals fall apart

Until a young voice gives my withered soul
A rejuvenating smile
And those small hands clasped around me
Erase the hardship for awhile

Don't let me live without a child's love
Like the love in this child of mine
Teach me again about a child's love
And sharing the best of my time,
Oh, and don't let me live without a child's love
Like the love in this child of mine
Teach me, dear Lord, to have a love for you
A child's love


In case you are not familiar with this song, I am including a link to a video. I do not who the little boy in this video is, but he is absolutely perfect for this song!

Enjoy!
