My Journey to God

His Favorites

Do not belittle little ones who play
around your feet in disarray
with things they shouldn’t touch.

Guard them well, kiss them when they cry,
and try not to tease them overmuch.
Even Aladdin’s cave held none such.

Endure their noise and trip over toys
with a good grace, for Jesus said
their angels gaze always, always,
upon His Father’s face.
