From the mouths of CHILDREN

So tonight before Darius went to sleep he prayed the following "Thank you God for this day, thank you for my food, thank you for my mom, thank you for the dog ears (explain later), thank you for my sissy, thank you for my dad, thank you for nunu, thank you for my nene, thank you for my joe joe, thank you for Noah, thank you for EJ, uncle Curtis, thank you for Auntie Jen, thank you for mom, thank you for Jesus, in Jesus name....Amen."

So first let me explain about the dog ears....I purchase a cute little dog, for David, that is laying on its tummy kicking its legs, and flapping his ears and singing.   Darius and Dad loved the gift.

So why did I tell you about this prayer?  I think the prayers of this little 2 1/2 year old boy should be a a lesson for all of us.  When we pray we should use this time to praise and thank God, instead of just asking Him for the things we think we need all the time.

Lord thank you so much for my little boy who can bring me back to the basics.  : )

Thought for the day: 
We need to get back to the basics of life

A heart that is pure and a love that is blind
A faith that is fervently grounded in Christ
The hope that endures for all times
These are the basics, we need to get back to the basics of life

  1. Isn't that wonderful!?! Noah's recent prayer - thank you God for peanut butter, syrup, honey, Luke, McKenzie, and peanut butter, and Mr Steve and baby Kate, and Nikki and mommy, daddy, and Jonah and Jesus. Thank you God for syrup and peanut butter, Amen.
