REMEMBER, HE'S ONLY NINE

On the plane today, Alex asked if he could borrow a pen to draw a picture of something he saw at the lake the morning he went fishing.

He told me that he saw a hill with a big tree on top.  The tree was all by itself.  On both sides of the tree, there were a bunch of trees together, but they were not near the one on top.  It was all alone and it was different that the other trees.

Then, in his sweet little boy voice, Alex said, "sometimes people feel like they are all alone, even when other people are all around."  Then as he drew the sun he said, "even if that is how we feel, we have to remember that we are not really alone because God is always with us and loves us, even if we are different."

I just love his heart!  
"Do not let anyone think less of you because you are young.  Be an example to all believers in what you say, in the way you live, in your love, your faith, and your purity."
{1 Timothy 4:12}
