Young children are filled with faith.
“When I look at the galaxies on a clear night, when I look at the incredible brilliance of creation, and think that this is what God is like, then instead of feeling intimidated and diminished by it, I am enlarged…I rejoice that I am part of it.” –Madeleine L’Engle
They believe all kinds of outrageous stories…the tooth fairy, the Easter bunny and so on.
“All I have seen teaches me to trust the Creator for all I have not seen.” –Ralph Waldo Emerson
They trust that their needs will be met by their parents…food, shelter and love.
“The heart that is generous and kind most resembles God.” –Robert Burns
They hold out their small hands for us to guide them along the path we choose for them.
“Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence.” –Helen Keller
If only we, as adults, could retain that childlike trust and faith.
“Faith is a bird that feels dawn breaking and sings while it is still dark.” –Rabindranath Tagore
They say that with faith, all things are possible.
Faith in themselves.
Faith in their children.
Faith in a Creator, Higher Power, Universal Being…call it what you will…it will give you strength and peace of mind.
“I would rather err on the side of faith than on the side of doubt.” –Robert Schuller
