This picture is of Leah and Sam last year in our backyard. Sam came all the way from Russia, Leah from China, now they are cousins. These two children have brought our family so much JOY, and are so full of joy.
People were bringing little children to Jesus to have him touch them, but the disciples rebuked them. When Jesus saw this, he was indignant. He said to them,"Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. I tell you the truth, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it."And he took the children in his arms, put his hands on them and blessed them. Mark 10:13-16
