like a little child

A child is most at rest
not when they are sleeping,
but when they are playing.
The quietness of a child
is not when they are being quiet,
but when they are laughing.
The peacefulness of a little boy
is not when he is at church,
but when he is out exploring nature.
The sweetness of a little girl
is not in the dresses she wears,
but in the Innocent Beauty she
portrays when she wears them.
Children don't struggle to be
who they are, or believe
what is true.
If Jesus said we are to
accept and welcome the
Kingdom of Heaven like a
little child and this is how
children live...
It can't be that hard.
