~~~~~~~ THOUGHTS:

"I believe the time we really look big in a child's eyes is when we go to them and apologize for our mistakes and we say, 'I was wrong. Will you forgive me?'" -- Kevin Leman

Often when my children were little, one of them would want something that cost too much, and I'd have to say, "Do you see a money tree outside? Money doesn't grow on trees, you know."

Years later, on a warm, spring Mother's Day morning, I happened to look out my window and saw a new tree planted right in my yard. I put my glasses on and couldn't believe what I saw. There were dollar bills taped all over the new tree - a hundred of them, in fact.

I live up in Michigan's Upper Peninsula, where winters are long and cold and summers are way too short. But every winter now, I look out my window and think about what my children did for me, and I get tears in my eyes - every time. I'm still not sure that money grows on trees. But I know love does.

Behind the sanctuary is a restroom facility that is separate from other buildings. A common topic of conversation was a problem that was occurring this year - bugs and crickets seem to seek refuge in the restroom.

One evening during church service, my granddaughter asked me where the bathroom was because she needed to use it. I she could use the restroom behind the sanctuary.

She exclaimed, "Grandma, I am afraid to go to that restroom because there are a lots of bugs and hypocrites in there."
