I am haunted by a good thing.
We brought popsicles to the park. Melty hazards, right? So we are pushing the last of them on our kids when a small boy tugs my skirt and grins up at me–oh! His kingdom for a gooey fudge pop.
I felt terrible we had no more. I also felt terrible that I dripped on his adorable sister. Chocolate sugary baptism!
I rushed to the car and got some hugely inferior snacks. I wish I could have given my small friend a life-time supply of Popsicles. His openness and candor was a glimpse of heaven.
Because the kingdom of God was made for such as he…
I cry for a broken world and rough, broken people. I cry, and pray for the children.
