And a child will lead them

On 4th of July we got free tickets to the Tuscaloosa concert and fireworks at the outdoor pavilion.  It was a beautiful night, unusually cool for July in Alabama.  We took Michael and Kelly and Parker (7 y.o.) and Issac (5 (y.o.) along.

The symphony did a good job of mixing classical oldies and more recent pop works.  The Director was personable and well-spoken.  They gave an apropos recognition to each branch of the military.

After a good concert and very nice fireworks display.  Brenda looked over and Parker had his head in his hands and his eyes closed.  Brenda was afraid he was upset about something.

"Parker, are you okay?  Is something wrong?"  Brenda asked sweetly.

"I'm just thanking G^d that I get to see real fireworks.  This is the best day of my life!" Parker responded.

"And he said: 'Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.'" Jesus said in Matt 18:3.
