I’ve always learned a lot from children. Dante, the grandson of our pastor, is one of my teachers. He teaches me to think in other ways. Since his verbal skills are limited, I try to sometimes anticipate what Dante needs. Occasionally, I’m right. He wants a book or to sit on my lap. Other times I know to “be still.” As it says in the Bible, being still brings us closer to God. I’m not good at being still and neither is Dante, but together God is teaching us trust. Just one woman in a rocking chair and one active young boy.
