Let The Little Children Come

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

When is the last time you read a Facebook post that just took your breath away?    Or how about one that brought you to happy tears?  This is exactly what happened to me the other day when I saw a post by my niece, Jaeme.


Jaeme is a 30-something, wife, mother of three, business owner, Tough Mudder maniac, workout queen, she teaches the children at church on Wednesday night and is a disciple of Jesus Christ!

Jaeme & Ace

Jaeme tells me that each night she and her 5-year-old son, Ace, play a game about “who loves the other one more.” The “winner” loves the other one more!

ACE WINS!   It is no contest in my book when Ace told his mother:

“Mama, I love you just less than Jesus loves you and no one can love you as much as Jesus so there’s no way you can love me more than I love you.”   ❤️

Jaeme wrote on Facebook: “Not sure what I did to deserve this kid but I thank the Lord for him every day.”

I surely don’t have all the answers but I know this: children are little sponges and Ace is soaking up that which he is surrounded with – the love of Jesus!

Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”
Matthew 19:14

I think raising children is hard.  Growing up I always saw myself as a wife and a mother.  It was my heart’s desire.  I love being a mother to my two sons and my four stepchildren, and grandmother to my 8 grandchildren and 2 great-grandchildren.  I thank God every day for those kids and my extraordinary Jesus-loving husband.   But I see the struggles of young people today and realize it is hard to live in a world that is pushing in on all sides.

Kudos Jaeme and Brian for modeling the love of Jesus to your children and all of us who know you!

Train up a child in the way he should go;
even when he is old he will not depart from it.  
Proverbs 22:6

Blessings, Catherine
