BEING A CHILD AGAIN

Have you ever thought about what life was really like when you were just a child? I think most all of us have at different times. I know that each of us lived our own childhood and no two are ever exactly alike.But for me I can remember how I just had faith that everything I needed was going to be given to me. And I dont want to confuse the things I needed with the things I wanted because I sure didnt get everything I wanted just the things I needed.I had faith that I would always have a place to stay, clothes to wear and food to eat.Of course I never fully realized just how hard my mother and step dad had to work to do that.We never had a lot of the "extras" in life but always did have the necessities.As an adult I am now even more amazed at my own parents and those who raised their kids in this manner.There is a bible verse in Matthew 18:3 which states Then Jesus said, "I tell you the truth, you must first change and become like little children. Otherwise, you will never enter the Kingdom of Heaven. Now I realize that each of us will take our own interpation of that verse as to what it means and I can only tell you what it means to me personally. And that is this--for me to truly live a life that is fulfilling and joyous I must first become as that little child again so I can establish that faith that is necessary for me to accept the gifts that Life offers to me.Just by knowing that Life will supply me everything I ever need I can then rest easy at night knowing all my needs are already fulfilled. And again Im trying not to confuse the things I need with those things I desire.I will end with the following quote from the Science of Mind--To each is given what he(she) needs and the gifts of heaven come alike to all. How we shall use these gifts is all that matters. My fondness hope is that each of you will find your life filled with much love joy peace and understanding. And please as you travel along this path you have chosen try and do something nice for someone today just because you can!

Hey Ron! You are inspiring as always...I, like a lot of people, did not have a wonderful childhood..and as an adult I know that the things I need will be provided for me if I go out and work for them...you're absolutely right, there's a big difference between what we want and what we need..I think that sometimes, especially with all the technology we have these days, people really think they 'need' something, when it's really just something they want...like a cell phone, or a big screen tv..I always feel inspired after I read your posts..take care and the best to you and your family..*hugs*

Thank you for the kind words Eve.I am so happy that you find some "good" in my posts.When I wrote this post I knew there are lots of folks who did not have a very good childhood and that is such a shame. I am so happy that you had the grit to overcome whatever problems there were cause I think you have turned out to be quite a terrific woman! thanks again

Amazing insight. Technically, I'm still a child I guess... I understand how hard my parents work to give my family and I the things we not only need, but want. I am so fortunate. My hopes are that one day I'll be able to provide my children with the life I am being given. Enjoy your weekend!

You are a gift indeed-a reminder that there is hope and sunshine behind every corner-every cloud.
Amen for you my dear friend.
And warm hugs~
