Today at church I was asked to step in and help with one of the children’s classrooms. This is a fairly common occurrence, and this time I was in a classroom full of 4 year olds. The class started out in the usual organized/chaotic fashion – kids running around playing with dolls, cars, building blocks, books, or whatever else looked entertaining.
During story time, while the teacher told the story, one little girl kept inching closer and closer to where I sat, finally sitting right next to me. A moment later she looks up at me and says, “I can’t wait to see Jesus.”
“Me neither, sweetie,” I replied. “Me neither.”
