When we had our weekend away our children had the opportunity to have a fly on some high ropes, it was basically a big swing in the air.


Here is our youngest son (7 years old) in his harness ready to go. He wasn’t afraid at all, he trusted that his father and brother and the other men on the end of the rope lifting him up and letting him down were going to look after him.


These are the men who kept him safe, they are taking their harnesses off after they swung him. My husband and his father is on the left. He’s the handsome one along with our no 1  son on the far right.

Below is our son up in the air about 10 metres (30 feet).  He even let go of his harness at one stage and put his arms out.  He really enjoyed this. DSC_1109

He did admit later that it was a bit scary when he first went up but he thought it was great fun, and would have done it again if we would have had the time.

I want that type of faith. The pure swing me in the air God and I will trust you although it may be scary type of faith.

I want that simple trusting faith without all the baggage that comes with being an adult.

What lessons we can learn from our children.

Matthew 18:3  and said, “Assuredly, I say to you, unless you are converted and become as little children, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven.
