Last Night's Prayer Time

Mom:  Ada, do you want to pray?

Ada:  Yes, (and she folded her hands)

silence

Ada:  I can't know the words (translation--I don't know what to say)

Mom:  okay, "Dear Jesus"

Ada:  Dear Jesus

Mom:  thank you for loving me

Ada:  thank you for loving me

Mom:  help me to love you

Ada:  help me to love you

Mom:  thank you for dying on the cross

Ada:  thank you for dying on the cross and thank you for mom dying on the cross

Wow...I don't think she fully understands exactly how the gospel works yet.

Oh my gosh! That's hilarious! Well, maybe she does understand...and she's thankful that you're dying on your own cross daily, now wouldn't that be understanding! Haha! I'm amazed at how much John looks like Scott with yours and Ada's red hair! So precious!

Agree with Lindsey about you dying on your own cross daily. She beat me to it :o) You truly do sacrifice for those babies... the kind of sacrifice only a mother is capable of. Glad John is starting to sleep a little more! Fingers crossed he keeps on! Have a great day!

LB, Abbie seems to be stuck on this. She keeps asking questions about "when she dies on the cross" or when me, or daddy or whoever dies on the cross. I seem to have confused her and no matter how many times I explain that only Jesus needed to die on the cross, so that we don't have to, she says okay and then the next day she asks me again!!!
