Last Sunday, I had volunteered to teach in our church's Primary. I wasn't feeling all that great, didn't really want to go, but I knew I had to keep my word and so I went.
And I was glad I did.
In sharing time, when all the classes gather together, the children sang one of my favorite songs, "A Child's Prayer." (Have you noticed that many of my favorite songs are those written for children?)
"Heavenly Father, are you really there?
Do you listen to every child's prayer?
Some say that heaven is far away,
But I feel it close around me when I pray."
As I listened to the voices of these sweet children, I was beyond touched. I blinked back tears and reminded myself that I had heard this song many times before, that there was no reason to cry over the familiar words. And then I realized that our Primary President had tears in her eyes as well. Apparently I was not the only one to be moved by the children's voices.
Joy for today: listening to the voices of children.
