"Because I like them... ("and" as Auntie prods with a smile) For his own glory."
I just read Susan's little cutie notes, and Trisha has tons of little blessings and it got me thinking about C. and his journey and my journey with looking for God's faithfulness in our children.
Two is my favorite age - hands down! I teach twos, I love twos, they're fun and wild and full of wonder. They are great! They trust so fully that it always amazes me and causes me to praise God, I can't help it, when I see their faith, mine is elevated.
Last night, C and I were zooming around the grocery store as we have guests coming and I was sale shopping. I told him what we were looking for and we were chatting along. Well, we couldn't find the salad dressing ( silly me, I was looking for the words "salad dressing" not condiments - brain bubble) So we were laughing, surmising where those sneaky dressings might be and on the third trip around the store the signage finally hit me. Anyway, I zipped down the aisle and C. screeched out, "The RANCH! THANK YOU JESUS for finding our ranch. Auntie let's sing the Amen song. (we sang the Amen song- in our version we throw out truths about God and then say "sing it over") C. calls out "God is great. "(We sing the Amen song again). An older gentleman on the aisle passes, smiling, I wondered what he might be thinking - I thought to myself, why would ever think God works more in the hearts of adults than children, I'm pretty sure I have that turned around and discombobulated.
