I just gotta share...she's so sweet!
A few weeks ago during prayer time she prayed, "Jesus, thank you for Mommy and Daddy and Caedmon and Petey (the dog). Ummmm...and Jesus....thank you for You!"
Don't you LOVE that?! When is the last time you or I thanked God for Himself in our prayers?
Too sweet! No wonder Jesus talked about the faith of a child!
Two nights ago as I tucked her into bed, I was playing the "Ooh! I see some "sugar" on you, with my name on it!" So, I just started kissing her little cheeks and nose and forehead and neck, and she was giggling like crazy. She kept saying, "Mommy..you missed one..right here. You missed another one..right here."
Then, I said, "Oh, there's one! On the other side of your neck...I gotta get that one!"
"No Mommy. That one is for Jesus. I'm saving it for Him!" :)
Oooh! I could eat her up!
Then tonight as we were driving home from AWANA, she was telling me all about her class. She suddendly remembered, "Mommy! I got to hold the Sparky flag!"
She went on..."Mommy! God answered my prayer! The teacher was looking to see who he was going to pick to hold the flag, and I wanted him to pick me SOOOO bad, so I prayed. I was praying and praying and asking God, "Please! Let him pick me!"
So I asked, "Baby, did you raise your hand?"
"No Mommy. I just prayed. And God answered my prayer Mommy! The teacher peeked his head up and looked at my name tag and said, "Brennan!".
Those of you who know him will appreciate this...by contrast, Caedmon said, "Mom, I was waving my hand as high and as hard as I could. I wanted to hold the Bible flag. Mommy, they didn't even pick me! I waved and waved, but I didn't get chosen."
Oh, how I could relate to him! I was always the kid almost screaming, "Pick ME! Pick ME!" and yet I wanted to be the one who sat silently and looked so cute that they HAD to pick me. Never happened..those who know me well will understand. :)
