The sweetest thing happened yesterday afternoon while I was playing on the floor with Henderson (4 months) and Emma Claire (4 years). EC and I were both "baby talking" to H and handing him little toys to suck on and watching him roll over when all of a sudden EC said "mommy, I want to pray" and I (kind of shocked, b/c we were in the middle of play time) said "okay honey, you pray" and this was her prayer:
"Dear God, please come live in Henderson's heart. Amen"
It was the sweetest thing, but I did go on to tell her that it was wonderful for her to want that for her brother, but that one day when he gets old enough to understand, he will have to ask Jesus into his heart on his own! We then talked a little more about sin and our need for Jesus and why Jesus died on the cross. It was a very special unplanned moment on our den floor!
