From the mind of Madison

My nine year old spent her valued "right before I fall asleep" time thinking of some things for me to blog about (on her own initiative). I am constantly amazed at the level of wisdom that comes from the mouths of my children. Below is her list of "issues" I should blog on. Her words are italicized.

On matters concerning emotional healing she stated " It's like when you go to the doctor, You have to get the bad stuff out before healing the wound, and it hurts more."

On matters concerning being your best, I think this one came from one of her movies she watches, She stated , "It does not matter where you are, it matters who you're with."

On matters concerning the feeling compassion for someone who is not doing well in life, or is not experiencing enough love in life, she stated "It's like a stick that does not get watered a lot." At nine, I think she understands the correlations between love and personal growth more than most adults.

On matters concerning emotional distress, needed compassion, or the validation of one's struggle she stated " It's like when you're hiding something you want to burst out like a fire work and let everyone know whats the matter, like everyone seeing the colors of you're problem."

I am not sure on which matter she was commenting on with this one, but she made the effort and spent the time to make the list so I will post it. She stated " You cant see through the mind of a horse, but you can see through the heart of the horse, and it's saying 'I matter, don't slaughter me.'"

1 Timothy 4:12 states " Let no one look down on your youthfulness, but rather in speech, conduct, love, faith, and purity, show yourself an example of those who believe." I think children see more, understand more, and believe more than we adults give them credit for. I also believe that they can bring a measure of healing to us in our time of need. Thank you Madison for sharing your views on these matters with Dad!! I love ya sweetheart!

IF only we had that much compassion as adults! She is truly a gift.

Children are remarkable beings ... they often see things more clearly than adults.

When people get very old they often return to a childlike state ... maybe this is a preparation for dying ... perhaps it is the simple childlike belief and faith which is needed by us all but is so hard to attain.
