Out of the Mouth's of Babes.

As we are picking up the boy's room before bedtime stories and prayers...

K-Man (5 years old): Momma, I pray in school.
Momma: (Heart swelling with Joy!) You do. That's wonderful. K-man you can always pray anywhere and at anytime.
K-man: I know, and God listens...I prayed that we wouldn't have anymore worksheets AND we didn't have to do the "o' is for octopus one!
Momma: Good K-man. (Hee Hee).

As we are all loaded up on the couch before my adorable husband reads bedtime stories to the boys.

Little Bit (2 almost 3 years old): I want to go to God's house.
Adorable Husband: Where does God live?
Little Bit: Heaven.
Adorable Husband: Well, you can someday, but not right now.
Little Bit: Ok. Does God have toys?
Adorable Husband: I don't know?
Little Bit: We'll ask him, ok?
Adorable Husband: Ok.

"He called a little child and had him stand among them. And he said: ' I tell you the truth, unless you change and become like the little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.' ".
Matthew 18:2-4

SO sweet!! This weekend, our church had our semi-annual conference. Jane watched it with her dad, Grace was with me. One of the speakers said, "Children, when was the last time you said you love your parents?" Both girls turned to their respective parent and said, "I love you." So cute. Kids have such a way of soaking in the things of the spirit and melting our hearts.
