I spent most of last week taking photos of preschoolers. By the end of each morning I was sweaty and grubby and nearly too achy to move.
But OHHHH how I loved seeing each transformation from “wait a minute, I don’t know you and I don’t want you to point that thing at me and what do you mean smile?” to “why yes, I AM silly and this is so much fun!”
One little character let me capture that transformation in a particularly expressive fashion:
Lord, thank You for these precious babies, and preserve their tender, genuine, monkeyish little spirits!
God, teach me lessons for living so I can stay the course. Preserve my life through Your righteous ways!
Psalm 119:33, 40 MESSAGE
