The message and scripture comes from the artist of this picture, Liz Lemon Swindle, who continues to paint pictures of the Savior even though she has rheumatoid arthritis, and every brush stroke is painful.
"When the people brought their little children to the Savior His disciples rebuked them, but Jesus replied, “Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.” (Matthew 19:13-14).
The Savior must have loved being surrounded by those perfect little souls who loved Him so dearly. I can imagine Him smiling as He watched them play and laughing as they told Him stories, the kind of simple and innocent stories all little children tell. I know they felt His love and longed to stay by His side.
This picture reminds me that no matter how old we get, we are still little children of a loving Father in Heaven."-Liz Lemon Swindle
With the before message in mind, can we imagine returning to the presence of the Father and the Savior again, being pure before them, and having them spend time with us as we rejoice that we have become as little children, and have served others, lifted others, and have done the Lord's will in all things, and have been cleansed of our sins by the power of the atonement. What joy will fill our souls at that time when we feel their warm embrace.
