The other day as I was tucking Emma Claire in for her afternoon nap, I sang with her Jesus Loves Me and Oh How I Love Jesus and then I told her we were going to pray. She answered with "mommy, I want you to go out of here... I want to pray by myself." My first reaction was HURT - How dare she ask me to "get out of here" and then I realized that God is working in her heart to become more and more independent and seek God herself. I closed the door and tried to listen to hear her pray, but the white noise maker was too loud and I couldn't hear anything. She may not have even prayed out loud, she may have prayed in her head, b/c we have had some talks lately about how God is always with us and knows our heart and our thoughts. And if you have ever met Emma Claire, you know this is SO.EMMA.CLAIRE - Miss Independent - always has been. I just pray that God will continue to work in her life and keep the independent streaks working for good.
