Young Children’s Thoughts About Love

 

Touching words from the mouths of babes. What does ‘Love’ mean to them?

 A group of Teachers posed this question to a group of 4 to 8 year-olds… What does ‘Love’ mean to you?’

 The answers they got were broader and deeper than anyone could have imagined. See what you think…

When my Grandmother got arthritis, she couldn’t bend over and paint her toenails anymore. So my Grandfather does it for her all the time, even when his hands got arthritis too. That’s Love. Rebecca- age 8                                                 

‘When someone loves you, the way they say your name is different. You just know that your name is safe in their mouth.’      Billy – age 4  

‘Love is when a girl puts on perfume and a boy puts on shaving cologne and they go out and smell each other.’  Karl – age 5

‘Love is when you go out to eat and give somebody most of your French fries but don’t make them give you any of theirs. Chrissy 6                 

 Love is what makes you smile even when you’re tired.

 Terri  age 4    

                                                                                              
‘Love is when my Mummy makes coffee for my daddy and she takes a sip before giving it to him, to make sure the taste is OK.’-
Danny – age 7

 Love is when you kiss all the time. Then when you get tired of kissing, you still want to be together and you talk more. My Mummy and Daddy are like that.

    But they look gross when they kiss’ – Emily – age 8  


‘Love is what’s in the room with you at Christmas if you stop opening presents and listen.’ Bobby – age 7 Wow!                                                              
                                                                                                    
‘If you want to learn to Love better, you should start with a friend who you hate, ( we need a few million more Nikka’s on this planet ) ‘Nikka – age 6  

‘Love is when you tell a guy you like his shirt, and then he wears it everyday.’Noelle – age 7

 ‘Love is like a little old woman and a little old man who are still friends even after they know each other so well.’ Tommy – age 6

During my Piano recital, I was on a stage and I was scared. I looked at all the people watching me and saw my daddy waving and smiling…

 He was the only one doing that.  

 I wasn’t scared anymore – Cindy aged 8 years        

My Mummy loves me more than anybody. You don’t see anyone else kissing me to sleep at night.’ Clare – age 6

‘Love is when Mummy gives Daddy the best piece of chicken.   Elaine-age 5

 Love is when Mummy sees Daddy smelly and sweaty and still says he is handsomer than Robert Redford     Chris – age 7

Love is when your Puppy licks your face even after you have left him alone all day.


Mary Ann – age 4

.

I know my older sister Loves me because she gives me all her old clothes and has to go out and buy new ones.’ Lauren – age 4

 When you Love somebody, your eyelashes go up and down       

 and little stars come out of you Karen – age 7                 

Love is when Mummy sees Daddy on the toilet and she doesn’t think it’s gross.’
Mark – age 6           ( Children’s Potty Talk. )       

 ‘You really shouldn’t say ‘I Love you’ unless you mean it. But if you mean it, you should say it a lot. People forget.’ Jessica – age 8

 A Very  Caring Child…
And the final one — An Author and Lecturer  once shared about  a true story  he had heard concerning a very young boy with a caring heart.
The Child was a four year old boy  and the next door Neighbour was an elderly gentleman who had recently lost his wife.
Upon seeing the man cry, the young boy  went into the old gentleman’s yard, climbed onto his lap, and just sat there.

  When his Mother asked what he had said to the Neighbour, the Child said,’Nothing, I just helped him cry.’ 

Childhood is a very special time in our lives a time of discovery and Joy and yet their needs to be a time to let go of Childish ways, thoughts, humor and ideas and a time of  embracing or accepting who we are as Adults, focusing and seeking for the True values and those things that define us as people of worth with an Inheritance and a purpose. No longer confused but able to participate in the Divine calling with passion and Joy offering God’s Hope in Love to others.    

But yes we are to be Childlike, in what is good, often Children have perceptions that sometimes Adults can lack but we are not to be Childish, we are to be like Children  in our Innocence and  Dependence on the Lord seeking Him with Trust and Thankfulness not trying to be in control but allowing Him to Guide and Teach us and being Honest and Open with Him and others.

How wonderful when we listen to the Lord and believe that no matter what happens He will cause all things to work together for Good because we Love Him and this is shown by our obedience to His will and because of this He has Chosen us to bear much fruit so we will Mature Spiritually and be Perfected in Love.

1 Corinthians 13:11When we were Children we talked in a Childish way, we had Childish thoughts and we reasoned like a Child but when we matured we no longer held onto Childish ways, we put them behind us.

Another Amazing Answer to Prayer

 

Last week I had another answer to Prayer, I was visiting a Church with a friend but found it hard because I was suffering from a sprained toe and  Bursitis of the hip, a condition I have had for years which needs Steroids for strong pain relief. I could hardly walk and needed to sit down for most of the Service. I asked the Associate Minister for Prayer hoping I would have God’s Strength to endure but the pain completely disappeared instead and I have not suffered with it since even though an Ultrasound on Monday showed the Bursitis was OK but that my lower back joint was now inflamed, so why No continuing pain for that time….. God is so very Good and so very Loving and Compassionate and He is with us through all Life brings.

Isaiah 43:1-3  Do not be afraid for I have ransomed you. I have called you by Name you are Mine. When you go through deep waters and great trouble I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty you will not drown! When you walk through the fire of oppression you will not be burned up the flames will not consume you. For I am the LORD your God The Holy One of Israel, your Saviour.”

Jeremiah 29 :11-12 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you says the LORD thoughts of Peace and not of evil, to give you a Future and a Hope.

Lamentations 3: 33 For God doth not afflict willingly nor grieve the Children of Men.

Another Special happening last week was from a Blogging friend, in the years I have been Blogging I have met some very Kind and Caring Christian Men and Woman and they have offered Godly advice, they have Encouraged and Uplifted me, Prayed for me and Supported me and some still do which I also shared about on the link below.

Heart Friendship – https://freedomborn.wordpress.com/2017/03/13/true-friendship-is-written-on-our-hearts/

Last week I received a beautiful Card from Patty with pass on notes and Loving wishes and an e-mail from her too. Patty is also a dear Blogging friend with a big heart, I have been having a hard time lately with accidents and health problems and Patty wanted to remind me that she Cared and was Praying for me.

I have Posted Patty’s Card below and the rest of the message inside the Card and also some of her pass on notes, this is not the first time Patty has encouraged and uplifted me and I’m sure she does the same with others too, if you would like to be friendly and say hello to Patty her link is on my right Sidebar under my Blogroll.

The rest of the message inside Patty’s Card…..He’s definitely not the only one who thinks your a Blessing – I’m so glad He knew you’d be part of my life and I’m thanking Him for you today…… There was also Patty’s own Loving words  and a Verse of Scripture on the other side of the card Psalm 103:2 -5

Patty’s pass on Notes…..

Thank you dear Patty for your Prayers and your Loving Encouragement and for your friendship which I value greatly- Anne.

For Those Who Claim There is No Trinity

The Godhead or Trinity as we call Them today both meaning Three  in One, are Abba Father, Jesus The Living Word and The Holy Ghost.  The Scriptures I have shared below Fully Confirm The Trinity who are One in Spirit although they have different Roles in The Godhead, The Abba Father always being in final Authority. (1Corinthians 15:27 -28)  It is The Holy Spirit that confirms There reality  in our hearts  (1Corinthians 2:9-16 )  and also the Scriptures below.

1Corinthians 12:3 Wherefore I give you to understand, that no man speaking by the Spirit of God calleth Jesus accursed: and that no man can say that Jesus is The LORD, but by the Holy Ghost.

The word Trinity was first used in the 18th Century, the same as Dinosaurs, they were originally called Dragons or Leviathans and are mentioned in the Old Testament . Aids is also mentioned in the New Testament and D.N.A but not by those names. The word Rapture is also relatively new but is called The First Sickle in Revelation and is also referred to by connection in Luke and other Scriptures.

1John 5:7 For there are Three that bear record in Heaven, The Father, The Word and The Holy Ghost and these Three are One.

Yes some Translations do leave the above  Scripture out that is referring to The Godhead or Trinity, I use the K.J.V but the way we can be sure it was in the original is if it is also confirmed in other Scriptures ( see below) there are more of course but these do confirm 1John 5:7

I have found that Members of J.W, the Mormons and Christadelphians, although they reject The Trinity they still Love Jesus and seek to serve Him but their understanding of Him is in error, the same as  with other important Truths, they do not call Jesus LORD of Lords  (Revelation19:15-16) They are being deceived by their False Teachers and because of their own Translations that distorts God’s Inspired Words. They cannot mature in Christ Jesus or know His reality when they reject His Truth in Scripture.

So are we to hate those who teach error, No we are to Love even our enemies but just as we would not accept what they say and do that is evil so we do not accept or welcome teaching that deceives and pollutes, rubbish in rubbish out but if we hold onto bitterness and resentment towards anyone or seek revenge, we will suffer ourselves, it eats away all the goodness in us, instead we Pray for them.

As I shared before the Scriptures below fully Confirm The Trinity, take time to read them and if lead to than share them with others so they will also be prepared if asked about the reality of The Trinity or Godhead as they are called in Scripture.

Jesus being conceived by The Holy Ghost had God’s seed not Adams and was in the Spirit fully God the same as The Holy Ghost.

Colossians 2:9 For in Him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.

Isaiah 9:6-7 For unto us a Child is Born, unto us a Son is given and the Government shall be upon His shoulder and His name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Of the increase of His Government and Peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon His Kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.

John 14:8-11 Philip said, “Lord, show us the Father and that will be enough for us.” Jesus answered; “Don’t you know me Philip even after I have been among you such a long time? Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say; ‘Show us the Father’? Don’t you believe that I am in the Father and that the Father is in me? The words I say to you I do not speak on my own authority. Rather it is the Father living in me, who is doing His work. Believe me when I say that I am in The Father and The Father is in me or at least believe on the evidence of the Works themselves.

One of Jesus’ Spiritual Names which shows His Divinity is Emmanuel, meaning God with us.

Matthew 1:22-23 Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the Prophet, saying, Behold, a Virgin shall be with Child, and shall bring forth a Son, and they shall call His Name Emmanuel which being interpreted is; God with us.

Jesus is The Living Word another Spiritual Name showing His Divinity.

John 1:1-3 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by Him; and without Him was not any thing made that was made. In Him was life; and the life was the Light of men. And the Light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

Genesis 1:26 – 27 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the fowl of the air and over the cattle and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. So God created man in His own image, in the image of God created He him; male and female created He them.

Colossians 1:14 -17 In whom we have redemption through His Blood even the forgiveness of Sins. Who is the image of the invisible God the firstborn of every Creature. For by Him were all things Created that are in Heaven and that are in earth visible and invisible whether they be Thrones or Dominions or Principalities or Powers all things were Created by Him and for Him and He is before all things and by Him all things consist.

The Scripture below also shows Jesus Divinity, Jesus never sinned, if He had He could not have been our Sacrificial Lamb to Redeem us. Jesus is good, He is God in Spirit.

Matthew 17a And He said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but One, that is God.

What does it mean to call Jesus the Rock which is another Spiritual Name showing His Divinity …..

Deuteronomy 32:3-5 Because I will publish the Name of the LORD, ascribe ye greatness unto our God. He is the Rock, His work is Perfect for all His ways are judgment a God of Truth and without iniquity just and right is He.

Psalm 18:2 The LORD is my Rock and my Fortress and my Deliverer, my God, my Strength in whom I will Trust, my Buckler and The Horn of my Salvation and my High Tower.(KJV)

Psalm 18:31 For who is God save The LORD? or who is a Rock save our God?(KJV)

Psalm 18:46 The LORD Liveth and Blessed be my Rock and let the God of my Salvation be Exalted.(KJV)

1 Corinthians 10:3-5 And did all eat the same Spiritual meat and did all drink the same Spiritual drink for they drank of that Spiritual Rock that followed them and that Rock was Christ.

Jesus is The Lord of Hosts, another Spiritual Name also showing His Divinity…..

Isaiah 54 :5 For thy Maker is thine Husband The Lord of Hosts is His Name and thy Redeemer the Holy One of Israel The God of the whole earth shall He be called.

Jesus said as we see confirmed below; I Am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, The Almighty.

Revelation 1:7-8  Behold  He cometh with clouds and every eye shall see Him and they also which pierced Him and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of Him. Even so Amen I Am Alpha and Omega The Beginning and The Ending saith the LORD which is and which was and which is to come The Almighty.

Revelation 19:15-16 And out of His mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it He should smite the Nations and He shall rule them with a rod of iron and He treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. And He hath on His vesture and on His thigh a Name written, KING OF Kings and LORD OF Lords.

Revelation 1:10 I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s day and heard behind me a great voice as of a trumpet Saying; I Am Alpha and Omega The First and The Last:

Revelation 1:18  Fear not, I Am the First and the Last I am He that liveth and was dead and behold I Am alive for evermore Amen and have the keys of Hell and of death.(KJV)

Revelation 21:5-7 And He that sat upon the Throne said; Behold I make all things new. And He said unto me; Write for these words are true and faithful. And He said unto me, It is done. I Am Alpha and Omega The Beginning and The End. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely. He that overcometh shall inherit all things and I will be his God and he shall be my son.(KJV)

Revelation 22:12-13 And behold I come quickly and my Reward is with me to give every man according as his work shall be. I Am Alpha and Omega, The Beginning and The End, The First and The Last. KJV)

Thank you for  Seeking God’s Truth in Scripture.

Christian Love in Christ Jesus – Anne.

13 Kinds Of People Jesus Encountered On His Way To The Cross

A very good Synopsis Victor of the people Jesus encountered on the day He was Crucified, although Reblogged Messages mostly don’t have much response, I appreciate very much the kindness and encouragement of those who have done so with mine and when I read something as comprehensive and thought provoking as this Post of yours Victor, I want to say Thank you and encourage you by Reblogging your Message so others can also read and enjoy it too.

Victors' Corner

The way to the Cross of Jesus People Jesus met on His way to the Cross.

Jesus encountered many kinds of people on the day He was crucified. This post takes a close look at the roles played by these people from His trial to His eventual crucifixion.

1. The elders and the chief priests.

These were the religious power brokers wielding tremendous influence over the people and the government of the day. Over time, this strict sect of people became offended with Jesus, because they felt threatened by His rising popularity and the way He has been tackling them on various contentious issues.

They were losing followers to Jesus. And the more accepted Jesus became amongst the people, the less relevant it appeared that these revered religious group became. Out of sheer envy, they delivered Jesus to governor Pilate to have Him destroyed.

They conspired to have Jesus crucified and they had their way, without knowing…
