Kids can take us right to the heart of God, one way or another. When they provoke frustration, we breathe a silent prayer for grace. When they incite giggles, we hear God’s laughter as well. When they stimulate an endearing moment, we sense God’s touch. When they utter a profound statement, we step back in wonder.
What is this phenomenon a little one evokes? Bubbly ripples of laughter that transport us to another realm. Unabashed honesty that cuts to the chase. Joy splashing around our ankles, light spilling into shadow, awakening us to a childlike appreciation for the world around us.
If we take the time, if we listen, if we stoop to their level, we can go where kids go—straight to the heart of God.
Wit & Wisdom from the Wee Ones is a collection of cute quips and quotes inspired by my grandchildren. Along with other contributors, I crack the door to the whimsical, yet often wise world of the child.
Here's a sneak peek at a few of the over 200 quotes included in Wit & Wisdom from the Wee Ones.
One day, while coloring a picture of a girl, my six-year-old daughter said, "She's Chinese or African-American. Whichever you think when you look at her. But she's not chocolate."-Sarah Tipton
