May We Linger Long in Childhood

May we linger long in love in childhood.

Savoring the life-moments, with a child-like appetite.

Loving with acceptance, with a child-like heart.

Playing with winsome whimsy,  with a child-like wonder.

And believing with unwavering,  with a child-like faith.

May your weekend be filled with child-like wonder, linger long, linger slow, linger in love and marvel for forever at the mystery of it all.

“Give me hunger, pain and want
Shut me out with shame and failure
From your doors of gold and fame,
Give me your shabbiest, weariest hunger!

But leave me a little love.”

–Carl Sandburg

  1. I don’t know if my other comment posted — but wanted you to know that I love this and your heart is beautiful!!

  2. Every day of the week I watch a three year old, also I am grandma to six so I do get to see and be with ‘childhood’ simplicity
    over and over. We could learn more from them.
    I love their spontanaeity, their trust, their love, the little hands that hold on to be safe, the little voices and little faith in a God who is way big. JUST love the little ones. Thank you for your wonderful reminders to remember the children.

    1. What joy, friend. I can learn much from your sweet spirit. Thank you for sending words of wisdom and encouragement this way. Looking for mud to wallow in. Wishing a weekend of child-like cheer for you.

  3. I love this and I need the reminder to be child like in my faith. Amen. And I love the quotes. Much love to you this weekend! 🙂

  4. The neat thing for me is that, at my less-than-young age, I’m more childlike than I ever was as a young ‘un. NOW, I laugh, play, enjoy and grin, inside and out. If this is the case, the closer I get to heaven, the more childlike I will be. Then it will last eternally. How cool is that?

Now it's your turn. I am honored that you took the time to comment. Thank you.
