Simple + {Childlike} Southern Sunday No. 21

“Jesus loves me! This I know,
For the Bible tells me so;
Little ones to Him belong;
They are weak, but He is strong.

Yes, Jesus loves me!  Yes, Jesus loves me!
Yes, Jesus loves me!  The Bible tells me so”

You have probably noticed by now, that each week on Simple +Southern Sunday, you see a picture of a child, and aren’t they just adorable?  You’ve seen them in Santa’s lap, playing outside, getting dirty, baking, riding a cow, and stealing the show at weddings!

In Matthew 19, Jesus says…”Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.”
Matthew 19:14

This week, we wanted to just take a look into some children’s lives and hopefully as you’re scrolling, the joy will be as contagious to you as it has been to us!   We surely can learn a lot from the life of a child!  God has given us this life to enjoy-and children can teach us how to do that!  Things like…

…having a Doritos picnic on the floor with Nico, Benji, and Isaiah…

…taking it all in like Sarah…

…cruising in a new convertible like Max…

…walking a dog barefoot in your tutu like Virginia…

…going out to eat at Steak n’ Shake with Natalie…


…cutting teeth with little Beau…

…playing in the rain with Emma and Kara…

…licking brownie batter with Benji…

…dressing up in your princess dress like Gracie…

…playing in the dirt with Jack and Parker…


…finding the prize egg with Judson and Barker…

…giving it your best like Elsie…

…and little Grey “mustache” you a question…

…dressing to the “nines” as Myla…

…cowboy Hudson trying his hand at painting…

…looking for signs of spring with Charis and princess Addy Kate…

…sometimes you just have to take a little nap while standing like precious Sam…

…enjoying your birthday gifts with Mary Grace…

…enjoying your firetruck birthday cake like Nico…

“Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it”
Luke 18:17
