This weekend, while we were up at the lake, Papa took a moment to sit and enjoy the view.
Unless you look carefully,
you might not notice Buddy Bear's shadow in the chair next to Papa.
He was enjoying the view too, right next to his beloved Papa Bear.
This quiet, precious moment reminded me that there are many, many moments in life
when a young person's admiring eyes are upon us.
Unless we look carefully, we might not notice.
We might not know that we're being watched, learned from, admired.
Thus, we have all the more reason to pray for the grace of a loving heart and worthy actions,
that little eyes might behold us in moments of grace, and embrace a path of love for their own lives.
Surely, Buddy Bear beholds that in his Papa.
May little eyes behold the same in each of us.
