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.”

I love your quotes and your heart so brilliantly displayed here.
Thank you. Big child-like hugs around your words. Both comments are here safe and sound. 🙂 Cherish them.
I don’t know if my other comment posted — but wanted you to know that I love this and your heart is beautiful!!
🙂 Cherishing savoring your kindness this Saturday. Have fun if you choose to wallow in the mud somewhere 🙂 Wish I could. 🙂
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.
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.
Trying to let the child in me loose! Blessings on your weekend!
Yes, yes. Me too 🙂 Not always as easy as I’d like….but let’s go forth and see what joy we find :), friend. With you.
Love these, Elizabeth! Those poignant words match the photos perfectly. Blessings!
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! 🙂
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?
I. how. I. Love. this.
linger long…..these words are a world of peace:)
beautiful quotes and photos;
Thank you Jennifer. So humbled by your visit here and your words. Do come back again. You are always welcome. Wishing you His Grace, Elizabeth
