But Jesus called for them, saying, "Permit the children to come to Me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these."

Luke 18: 16 New American Standard

A great verse Susanne! A reminder to us big people that we need to be like a child in our faith.

Have a blessed weekend and a most joyous Sunday.

Oh, how sweet, Susanne. The first time I saw this underground sprinkler system thing was at the Pearl Street Mall in Boulder, here in Colorado. Kids LOVE them. How fun is this!

Happy Saturday, my friend. I'm lovin' mine!

Great picture, great verse, Susanne. That picture doesn't even look possible right now to me, but soon we will welcome playing in the cool water!

Such a special verse!
Last Easter, at a sort of Passion Play at church, Jesus was portrayed so wonderfully. I still remember how in this play, He interacted with the children. It even showed him being playful with them, and that really touched me.
This verse made me remember all this tonight, so thank you for sharing it Susanne!

I love that verse!

The picture is so fun--it reminds me of a place in Destin,Florida we go to when we are at the beach...The Destin Commons...a great outdoor shopping area with a big water area like this in the middle for the kids! My kids loved it last summer!

Have a wonderful day!

Great match- Children just being themselves and the Words of Christ. He loves us as we are. We just have to come to Him without any thought of doctrine or philosophy.

Just us in our child-like form.

What a sweet picture and a perfect verse to go with it.

Linda said...

Sure looks like fun. That verse reminds me that it is simple, child-like faith that draws us to the Savior - and He is always waiting with open arms.

This is one of my most favourite verses, I'm not sure if it is just because I am a soppy Mummy. I love the image of Jesus lovingly welcoming the children. :)

Love the picture too!
