A sweet prayer

We did half our school work today and then went to the park. TJ was so proud of himself and his reading accomplishments that he kept coming up and whispering in my ear, "Did you tell them I can read 16 words?" or "Did you tell them I read 'a cat sat'?" It was funny and soooo touching to see how proud he is.
I forgot another first this week. Sari prayed before our meal. She for a few months has been adding her own "amen" and lately has been asking, "I pay?" (pray) and them when we say "yes" she would say "Gah is gay"(God is's good He knows her heart and isn't reliant on her language skills :-) over and over until we forced her into the "amen". Well yesterday she said, "I pay?" and we said yes and she said, "Gah is gay...Gah is goo..weh ah thank hih for foo...AMEN." It just melts my heart that my 2 year old wants to pray. I know right now it's just a desire to copy her siblings, but I know the day is coming where she will really mean those words and that is exciting too.
I'm thankful for children who love the Lord and prayerful that they will love each other, LOL. I yearn for the day they fully understand how good and great their God is.
until tomorrow,
Pin It!

Boy, this sure is wonderful. It is how they get it trained into them young. That is why it is so much easier to bring young ones to God. They have an open heart and willing spirit before the world junks em' up! If it is trained into her young then when the heart comes for God, she is three steps ahead already! Yay for Sari! (and for her Mom and Dad who train her up the way she should go...)
