Simple Lessons

Yesterday I witnessed some very brave parents. I was watching the counter where new parents register. These parents were amazing. They confidently listened as the security procedures were explained. They looked around the building and made a quick assessment of cleanliness and orderliness. Then came the amazing part............with confidence, they
  • said goodbye to their precious PeeWee
  • gave hugs and told them they would have fun
  • left.......and went into the adult service to listen and learn themselves

And perhaps the best lesson they taught their PeeWee that day........TRUST because they returned! Those PeeWees were so blessed to have parents like that. Those PeeWees learned about God in an environment they were comfortable in because their parents had blessed it. Then, they learned trust, because mom and dad returned just like they said they would.

Wow.........lots of lessons in a seemingly simple exchange. That is the life with PeeWees. Lessons in every simple exchange and every simple activity, every single day.

Yea! I can't wait to read more. Having mentors who have "been there and done that" through the preschool years is invaluable. Thanks for being willing to share your experience and wisdom. :)

Very true! What a great lesson for those kiddos. So neat to see this blog, can't wait to read more about the goings on in PeeWeeVille.
I am blessed to be able to bring my children to such a place where people like you are loving them and sharing God's love and word with them.
Their safety is so important to me and I never have to worry about that.

Have a great day!

Thanks for making it so easy to leave our kiddos, and for making it easy for them to trust! Excited about this blog, Lisa!
