For Children With Lost Dreams.

Some children dream of positively changing the world.

Some children dream of helping their parents and others.

Some children dream of spreading love, light and beauty.

Despite all these glorious aspirations, the dreams of so 

many children get lost in the sea of illness, 

parent’s divorce, abandonment and sometimes death.

Jesus had a special and soft spot for children and he once said this to those who were rebuking the children from accessing him:

13 Then little children were brought to Him that He might put His hands on them and pray, but the disciples rebuked them.

14 But Jesus said, “Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of heaven.”

15 And He laid His hands on them and departed from there.

Matthew 19:13-15

So, for the children whose dreams have been cut short for one reason or another, I dedicate this Poem written by Kae Bucher.

This heartbreakingly beautiful poem was written by Kae in honor of Down syndrome babies who are now nestling safe and secure in their heavenly Father’s bosom.

What Does Love Mean To Children

What does love mean to children as they grow up?

What does love mean to children as they grow up?

Are we teaching children the true meaning of love and helping them not only know the love of Jesus Christ but love for others?

I found five children at the park and decided to ask them what love meant to each of them. They gave me some delightful answers.

Thomas – Age 6 – “Love is when Daddy tucks me in to sleep at night and reads me a story.”

Jenny – Age 5 – “Love is when mummy buys me dolls and treats.”

Benjamin – Age 5 – “Love is being all nice and good.” 

Gerry – Age 7 – “Love is when my mummy and my daddy kiss and look at each other with that look in their eyes.”

Regina – Age 6 – “When my friend Destiny shares her toys and snacks with me while we are playing, that is love.

Ritu is a working mother who has two adorable children.

She shares her experiences on, “What love means to kids”  in an awesome blog post. Her post was inspired by a question she asked her two children on what love meant to them.

Her children gave very creative  responses.

In answering the question, they imaginatively expressed themselves by drawing pictures, writing posts and some very heart warming poetry. She starts her fabulous blog post by telling us: 

“I asked my children what love meant, and both of them, at separate times, mad faces at me, and went “Yuck!” Typical reactions for an 11 and 9-year-old! Love = boys/girls = kissing. Of course, that’s ‘yuck’ to them! After a little more explanation, the best we came up with was this; Lil Man There” …….

As we help children learn how to love wholesomely, we should remember to teach them the 1 Corinthians 13Bible definition of love which I summarized as:

Love is patient

Love is kind.

Love does not envy

Love is not boastful

Love is not puffed up

Love does not act improperly

Love is not selfish

Love is not provoked

Love thinks no evil

Love does not keep a record of wrongs

Love takes no pleasure in wrongdoing, but has joy in what is true

Love bears all things

Love believes all things

Love hopes all things

Love endures all things

Love never fails


1 Corinthians 13:4-8
