Jesus Once was a Little Child

Jesus Once was a Little Child by Liz Lemon Swindle

The Bible contains a single verse describing the Savior´s childhood, “And the child grew, and waxed strong in spirit, filled with wisdom: and the grace of God was upon him.” – Luke 2:40

I could imagine Mary looking on while her Son played with his brothers and sisters (Matt. 13:55-56). I could see Joseph smiling while Jesus laughed and played with friends and family. I wanted to capture that magical innocence of childhood, which blesses our lives for such a short moment and then leaves us longing for the sound of little feet and the laughter of little children.

I am reminded of a song I learned as little girl:

 Jesus once was a little child,
A little child like me;
And he was pure and meek and mild,
As a little child should be.
 
So, little children,
Let’s you and I
Try to be like him,
Try, try, try.
