Children’s Faces

This summer, as I watched children climb on stage and perform their Bible verses and their solos during the Homeschool Dramatic Society auditions, I was struck by their faces. I saw courage and innocence and hope and confidence. I was so very proud of them for being so very brave.

What a blessing it has been to help our daughter in this ministry to children and to our community. What a privilege I have enjoyed while watching our grandchildren grow up on stage.

We have a longstanding tradition of taking a director and assistant director picture after each year’s final performance. This one—with grandchildren in it, too—goes back to 2015 when children told the story of people who were “Touched by the King.”

These faces told the story that year.

And these scenes show how well their faces told it.

As the Oak Ridge Boys used to sing in the song by Eddy Raven: “Thank God for Kids.”

And they were bringing children to Him
so that He might touch them; but the disciples rebuked them. 
But when Jesus saw this, He was indignant and said to them,
“Permit the children to come to Me; do not hinder them;
for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. 
Truly I say to you, whoever does not receive
the kingdom of God like a child will not enter it at all.” 
And He took them in His arms
and began blessing them, laying His hands on them.
Mark 10:13-16
