New Eyes

"It has crayons all around it. And it would break if I stepped on in it."

J's answer to my question about the timepiece suspended on a nail in the classroom wall. I saw only utilitarian purpose. Unstained by pragmatism, he saw a colorful and fragile piece of art.

What else do I miss?

Lord, thank you for using these little ones in my life to open my eyes to beauty in a whole new way! Give me eyes to see people like this -- works of art from the hand of the magnificient Creator, each one fashioned in your own image.
