Wow- there is a powerful love that is the closest to God here on Earth. That love is his power shown through the love of children. Children have a love that is so pure and innocent. A love that has the ability to set us free from our worries and cares. Who else out there who has children and who remembers the nights our little boys fell asleep in our arms as they have their last bottle for the day. Who knows the love we feel wrapped up in a warm winter blanket with our daughters curled up reading a good book? If you want to know God, then know children. His Light is brightest through their eyes. Their energy stays with their toys and pillows and blankies throughout the years. We keep these items and never throw them away because all of their good positive childhood energy is stored in them in the form of memories. We feel these memories and hold that old teddy bear tightly.
I want to share with you the reason for this journal. Tonight I picked up an art poster drawn by children for my son. This is not just any old poster. This poster blew me away with its amazing beautiful energy tonight as I picked it up. This poster’s power ran through me and touched my heart and gut and beamed down through and out my feet. I was completely shocked at the feeling I felt. It was then that I realized what it was. This energy burst that went through me was the stored-up love shared by children for my son.
And….I want to share with you the reason for this energy. This poster was written in a mosaic form from each one of his friends and classmates. This poster was written with love; a connected, deep, powerful love that children can feel and show. It was an artistic endeavor combined with an act of friendship that all those children shared with my son in his darkest hours. This poster was written to my son a week after his father was diagnosed with terminal cancer and died 5 weeks later. This poster will remain on his wall for as long as he needs its beautiful, powerful, God-filled Love.
Thank you to all you wonderful boys and girls of Waterdown, Canada that fill my son’s heart with love. Your love and light is captured in this poster and encircles my son with peace on a daily basis. And for that I am and will always be eternally grateful.
