Way Back Wednesday---Happiness

     What a way to wake up!  I wish I could say this is how I get up each day but that is not the case.  I can say that this is how I envision the happiness I will feel when I get to heaven.  I was probably about 4yrs old here with not a care in the world.  I didn't care about a fancy bed or room, but was humble enough to be happy to wake up to loving parents.  Was that the age for me to not yet know the ugliness of this world?  Children at this age are often trusting, forgiving, and oblivious to the dangers of this world.  When we come to know our Savior, we too can turn to Him to regain these characteristics.
     Matthew 18:2-4  ''He called a little child, whom he placed among them.  And he said: “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore, whoever takes a humble place—becoming like this child—is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.'' 
     My desire is to be like this little girl again, who is filled with love.
