Several times this weekend when I would sit down with the children to eat snack or b'fast or lunch, my children and I would all dig in and then I would look up to see Wilson, my 18 month old, looking at me with his hands folded in front of him ready to say the prayer. Now he can't talk well enough to pray himself, he does put in a good "AMEN" at the end, but he has witnessed it enough (thank God) to know that that is what we do before we eat. We are really good about praying consistently before more "formal" meals like dinner where we are all at the table, but I have to confess that at hurried lunches where it's just the children eating or breakfast or snacks, I often forget to lead him in prayer. Well, it was definitely a wake up call to have him reminding me to say Thanks!
I am a wife, mother, sister, daughter, friend, sinner, saint - bought by the precious blood of the Living God through Jesus Christ. This is just a glimpse of the life I live - my hands are full, but so is my heart! Enjoy!
