Blowing them around the room, he stopped screaming and started watching the bubbles float around with tears silently coursing down his cheeks.
When she left the room, I realized that she had bubbles in her hair. The type of bubbles she was using were they ones that are somewhat plastic-y and don't really dissolve after you pop them.
But in that moment, God used something as simple, mesmerizing, and tantalizing as bubbles to provide hope, encouragement, and peace to a little, scared boy.
Oh my, what a scene it was.
Have you ever stopped to think about how magical bubbles are?
For kids around the ages of 2 to 5, bubbles are simply magical.
It is simply amazing to watch kids delight in, squeal, run, and simply go crazy when you blow bubbles.
Seriously, there is no better feeling.
(Maybe besides that awesome dream that you have right before you wake up. And then when you wake up, you go back to sleep to 'finish' it :)
