This picture is from our recent school carnival. When I looked at it closer when I put it on the computer Mr J's face just made me laugh, and then it really made me think. The joy of a child, look how happy that kid is? What is he so happy about? Cotton candy, spun sugar. What a simple thing. Looking at him I thought, "When was the last time I was that happy about something?" Then I corrected myself and thought, "No, when was the last time I was that happy about something so simple?" When Christ said "become as a little child" I think one of the things He was talking about was the joy a child has over such simple things. I think as adults that is something we lose very quickly. Do we see the joy in such simple things? Cotton candy, a colored leaf, a praying mantis, a funny shaped cloud, the touch of a hand, a kiss on a cheek? So, this is my sermon for today, become as a little child and let the simple, little things--like cotton candy at a school carnival-- bring you much joy and happiness.
