You look into their eyes
See the innocence and hope
Hear the laughter
And for just a moment
Heaven opens up the door

Little child
Little lamb
When did I stop believing
In all those things
You take on faith
Why did I stop believing

I must remember how…
Can you teach me how?

Delicate flowers
Like God’s own breath
From the deepest part
Of His Eternal Heart

Hold them, teach them…
Make them strong
tell them that
The Savior’s coming soon
He’s coming…
And it won’t be long

Little lamb,
Oh, little child
Help me find my way
Even when I stumble,
Teach me to praise…
For we’re going home to stay.

Little lamb,
Oh, little child
Child to light my path.
Teach me to pray
With innocence
Til we all go home at last.

I kept wondering why that frisbee kept getting bigger and bigger....and then it hit me.

This reminds me of the passage that says and a little child shall lead them. Surely the little child is closer to true innonce than we are--yet so often we write them of as being of little to no importance only a burden or a distraction keeping us from our greater ambitions and goals.  
  So such a message as embodied in this poem is one we need to be reminded of, and humbled by in our walk with God.

I thank the LORD everyday
He has given me something to say
And to share with others,
My Friends, my sisters, my brothers!

To God Be the Glory!
