Like the First Time



Something such as rain that we consider so ordinary and "everyday" is an exciting new experience to a child. 

This is what it is to be childlike. 

To delight in the beauty of this world as if this is your first experience.

To find a way to turn the dullest situation into a moment to remember.

To cherish the sweet smiles on the faces of the elderly.

To appreciate the hard work of one who has not been home all day.

To say a heartfelt prayer and listen for that still, small voice.

To go about the mundane tasks of the everyday with a happy smile in your heart that is exposed on your face, knowing that there is a purpose.

To be like a child.

To learn from a child.

To experience each child's personality.

To love a child.

To pray with a child.

To guide a child along the way of learning.

Such is the grace that I long to carry out in my everyday life!

  1. That is so beautiful! I pray for the children who will never know childhood due to it being stolen by abuse. Pray for all children.

Thank you for stopping by CYW! Comments are always welcome, and we appreciate your thoughts. CYW is meant to be a community of like-minded Catholic women, so hearing from our readers always make us smile.

Disagreement is permitted, but we require that some sort of name be attached to the comment rather than simply leaving it anonymous and that charity always be maintained. And, though criticism of a post is acceptable, any derisive remarks about the personal lives of the contributors are considered unacceptable.

Comments are moderated for the sake of our young readers.
