Childlike Praise

This photo was taken by a friend at church. It's actually old, from back in December, but I think it's a beautiful picture of Micah. I saw it for the first time a couple of months ago during our worship service. It was a Sunday in which there was a focus on the children of our church. There were several photos of kids posted on the large screen as we sang. Micah's picture was behind the words to the song "Let My Words Be Few" by Matt Redman. The first verse goes like this:

You are God in heaven
And here am I on earth
So I'll let my words be few
Jesus, I am so in love with you

Chorus:
And I'll stand in awe of you
Yes, I'll stand in awe of you
And I'll let my words be few
Jesus, I am so in love with you

It was a sweet surprise to see this photo as we were worshipping. Micah looks like he is in a posture of praise to me. We pray that Micah will understand and know who Jesus is in this lifetime; we will do our best to teach him how wonderful He is. In the meantime, he already praises him with his sweet little life, the way he explores the world, his laughter, and his precious smile.

Micah's picture looks angelic--and angels named in the Bible were male. He looks like one of their descendants--if that were possible!
Such a wonder of a photo. The people in Nebraska to whom I showed his picture--and all three of you--commented what a handsome--yes, beautiful--fellow--as are all of you. Of course, I'm prejudiced! Karen

Sweetest picture ever! Yes, I remember watching the game with he-who-shall-not-be-named. I can now watch the games in peace, and Sunday's was a good one. I suppose we could pick up the phone. Perhaps we could pick a time next month. This month is pretty much eaten up with church stuff. Hope to see you all soon. T
