Our kitchen counter has lots of uses. Besides making morning peach pancakes, it serves as an art center for one little budding artist.
How important it is to create beautiful moments, especially with little ones. And, how important it is to speak life and hope and future into the souls of little people.
I've been able to pick up on little things that each of my grandchildren have said and am moved to capitalize on those attributes in their hearts. For example, I tell one grandson he will be a judge and one granddaughter I say will be a veterinarian. And, this one, I say will be an artist. Today, with the biggest smile, she began to call herself an artist.
Our words have such power. There is an old Proverb that says there is life and death in the power of the tongue. I work on being that conduit of life to those around me.
