In the Eyes of a Child

In the eyes of a child there is joy, there is laughter
There is hope, there is trust, a chance to shape the future
For the lessons of life, there is no better teacher
Than the look in the eyes of a child

Husband took this shot last week when he visited an upland area named Datal Salvan, found only here in General Santos City, and when he uploaded it in Facebook, he entitled the album, "In the Eyes of a Child". He told me they brought a pack of 10 Skyflakes biscuits which one teacher opened each pack and shared one biscuit for each child in order to feed everyone. And just when I rode the bus today, I heard this song by Air Supply and I was touched by the lyrics of the song.

This Christmas, I hope that your families are doing good, if not better or best. And I pray that even with the challenges that you are facing, you will remember to pray for children who are hungry, who do not have parents to care for them, who do not have love felt in their hearts. I hope you will find an opportunity to share with them a meal, or even give them something they could be happy about.

This Christmas, look in the eyes of a child, and there you will see joy, laughter, hope and trust.

alam ko ang kantang ito, nakakaiyak na ang kanta, binigyan mo pa ng lalim lalo. nagbigay buhay pa sa larawang kuha ng mister mo. ang husay, sheng!
sa apo, may kanta din sila na may letrang, "sa yo ang mundo pag bata ka!"
...mahusay maging bata. walang problema. walang dinadamdam. walang iniisip. :)
