My grandson’s school had their annual auction on Sunday. This is the major fundraiser for the school. In addition to sheds and 4-wheelers and sides of beef (this is cow country, you know) each class does a project.
For Moose’s class this year, each child had to bring in a verse, Scripture or something else spiritual, that either has meaning to his family or that spoke directly to him. Moose and I googled “saints” and “quotations”. The results were amazing.
After reading just a few quotes, we came across this one from St. Francis of Assisi.
Moose instantly said, “That’s it”.
I asked if he didn’t want to look at some more and he looked at me like I had rocks in my head,. “But, Grandma, that one’s perfect. Why would I keep looking?”
Moose has always had a very close relationship with God. He is very sure of God and His love and of his love for Him. He is also aware, because we (his mom and me and his teachers and everyone else) tell him, of his faults.
Maybe it’s time to lighten up…or maybe, it’s just time to recognize God’s work.
