Ms. Leslie’s Letter to Parents
When I was a little girl, my dad served as a pastor for a small country church. Every Sunday evening my younger brother and I eagerly anticipated the moment when we raised our hand and called out the page number of a favorite hymn.
When the awaited time arrived, my hand shot up in the air with a fervent prayer, “Choose me, Daddy. Choose me.” The moment his nod, smile, and wink came my way, I joyfully shouted, “39!” , “46!”, or “91!”
The words of “46!” flood my soul.
“’Are ye able?’ said the Master, ‘to be crucified with Me?’”
As lovers of children, the great God of Love asks you and me every moment of every day. “Are you able to be crucified with Me?”
“When someone frustrates you, are you able you die to impatience, and be kind?” Children are watching.
“When someone’s actions make your life difficult, are you able to die to judgment, and be kind?” Children are learning.
Teach us, Lord God, how to die to self and live for You abundantly, joyfully, and radiantly. We adore You, O Christ, now and forever. Amen.
“Are ye able,” said the Master, “to be crucified with me?”
“Yay” the sturdy dreamers answered, “to the death we follow thee.”
Refrain: Lord, we are able. Our spirits are Thine. Remold them, make us, like Thee, divine.
Thy guiding radiance above us shall be a beacon to God, to love, and loyalty.
