Don't you just love this season of 'first leaf'?! The trees are like giant umbrellas and the other day this branch BEGGED for a swing(after I bumped my head on it once too often) so we made a one-of-a-kind pillow-swing. The little guys I baby-sit are delighted as they fight for turns;))
The tree is full of leaf
The morning full of spring
The throat of bird is full of song
The hour full of wing
The sky is full of blue
The earth is full of June
Thought’s poetry is full of praise
For bud is full of bloom
The hand is full of touch
The soul is full of need
Our eyes are full of the offspring
Where thought is full of seed
The dream is full of child
And hope is full of prayer
The heart is full of gratitude
For God is everywhere

The earth is the Lord's, and the fullness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein. Psalms 24:1
Little guy I babysit: 'Janet, why did God make robbers?'
Janet, after thinking for a moment: 'God made people, and we choose to become...'
....a few minutes later,
Little guy: 'Janet, what do you call a polar bear in a jungle?'
Janet, after thinking a few moments; 'I have no idea'
Little guy, with a twinkle in his eye; 'lost'
...the child is full of questions and we are full of laughter:) and grave responsibility as they weigh our responses.
