With A Child’s Heart

Quote Posted on

I should hope that I never grow so old as to forget what it is like to laugh and play as a child, enjoying the simpler things of life. I hope that I shall never grow so old that I spend my life living enclosed in a box, wearing blinders, and having obscure vision, but that I may still be able to view the world through the eyes of an innocent child as a place of beauty and wonder as God created it to be. I pray that I shall never grow so old that my heart becomes cold and calloused, shutting out the world and only thinking of myself, but that I can be as accepting as a child who has a warm heart and open arms to welcome in everyone he meets. But most of all, I sincerely pray that I shall never grow so old as to forget what it is to be loved, but even more importantly, to love unconditionally as with the heart of a child.
