Pencil drawing of a little girl looking up at Jesus in delight as they dance together. What little girl doesn’t love to spin and twirl? And how much more fun it is when holding the hand of a loving adult. Dancing with Jesus would be a treat for any little girl, but for disabled little girls with limited mobility (as was the child for whom this was drawn), such an opportunity would represent the joy and perfection of Heaven itself. “”…let the children of Zion be joyful in their King. Let them praise his name in the dance.” (Psalms 149:3) See "My Beliefs" Click on the image for more details.
Pencil drawing of The Savior spending a few playful moments with a boy and girl. Truly childhood is a time to love and laugh. Certainly the Savior encouraged work, obedience and reverence, but understanding a child’s need for unscripted play time, I believe He occasionally paused to enjoy the camaraderie of joyful interaction. “To everything there is a season and a time to every purpose under the heaven…A time to weep, and a time to laugh…” (Ecclesiastes 3:1 and 4) Click on image for more details.

Pencil drawing of a young African-American boy sitting on Jesus’ lap. The Savior knows and loves each one of God’s children and regards them equally. In addition, the passing of a loved one never goes unnoticed by Him. He welcomes all. “Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? And one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father…Fear ye not, therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows.” (Matt 10:29-31). Click on the image for more details.
