Why I Believe: “Suffer the Little Children to come unto me.”

September 10, 2014
This will be the first official entry in the WHY I BELIEVE series

It’s purpose is to share a moment that increased or in this case was the germination of belief.

I was three years old. I know because I sat on the Moonbeam row in the very front of the Jr. Sunday School.
There is nothing profound in this earliest religious experience. But it is important to me because it was the first time I felt something special in relation to Jesus Christ.
In the front of the Jr. Sunday School was a large painting of Jesus, similar to this one.

The song, “Reverently, Quietly” was playing softly on the piano. I sat down in the little Moonbeam chair and listened to the melody:
 Reverently, quietly,
Lovingly we think of Thee, 
Reverently, quietly,
Softly sing our melody, 
Reverently quietly, 
Humbly now we pray, 
Let thy Holy Spirit dwell,
In our hearts today.
I felt deep peace and reverence. I sat there looking at the picture and feeling love for Jesus. I wanted to be a good girl for His sake. 
Since that time, I never see that image without remembering what I felt for the Prince of Peace that Sunday morning over fifty years ago.   
“Suffer the little children to come unto me and forbid them not, for of such is kingdom of Heaven.”
