Meet My New Friend

Alexi’s frogThis little frog was a gift from a six-year-old girl at church named Alexi. She came to talk to me a couple of weeks ago after church and showed me this frog she made during Kids Zone. On the back of it is a scripture verse which she read out loud to me: “I praise you God because I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Your works are wonderful, I know that full well!” Psalms 139:14.

We talked about how well she read the scripture verse and about the frog. I told her I thought it was very cute and then she gave it to me. I thanked her and off she went. That afternoon we had our church picnic and Alexi’s grandmother, Loretta, came over to speak with me. Loretta told me she asked Alexi why she gave me the frog. Alexi told her, “I bet she doesn’t have any little kids in her life to give her gifts, so that’s why I wanted her to have something from me.”

Isn’t that the sweetest thing?

    I really believe that if we open our arms to love, the Lord will fill them for us.

    I bet you have lots of little children, Karen.

    Lots of love there.
