As we sat down to eat, Jason and I neglected to allow Connor to lead our usual blessing.  Instead, we dug right into our food.

Connor looked at me and said, "Mama, blessing?"

I apologized and told him that we would stop and say the blessing before we continued.

He, with those big blue eyes, turned to me and said, "Jesus is sad."

It is days like these that I pray extra hard that we are doing right as parents by this little boy.  I pray he never wants to make Jesus sad, and I am thankful that a two-year old can speak a sermon in a sentence.

It's so true that a child's words can just cut right through you and remind you what really matters. Have you ever read, Heaven is for real?? I wonder if Conner was like having a connection because I do think God makes himself more present to little kids. So cool.

I've become so convicted, as I've noticed LG become more aware and knowledgeable and able to express her thoughts, with modeling Christ-like behavior. It's amazing what they're able to point out to us, even so young. Like Ali said, I also believe God makes Himself more present to little ones - He asked us to have faith like them. :) Connor has such a sweet heart.
