I saw this picture and was instantly in love with this child. It’s aptly named, I thought. Innocence simply radiates from the girl.
I think sometimes, innocence gets a bad rap, treated like naivete. But it’s a gift, and this picture captures it in its simplicity. This girl is free of cares, and evil hasn’t touched her. She knows only joy and wonder; she delights in tiny splendors like the dew of a fresh morning beading on the carpet of grass, or flower petals tickling her feet. She shines in her contentedness and peace.
I see this and I want to be like her. I want to find joy in the small things. If we focus on each of our blessings, not overlooking the glory in every corner of our existences…life would truly be magical.
