Prayer And Thoughts On Life From A Five-Year-Old Boy
Our dear grandson, Mr. G., recently prayed at bedtime: “Dear Jesus, I was wondering if you would help my big brother's owies get all better? And I was also wondering if you would help my owies get better too 'cause I have lots of 'em? Thank you that the Bible lives in our heart and thank you that you live in our heart and thank you that we get to go to heaven. Amen.” Several weeks ago he shared his perspective on life with his daddy: “After you’re all done being little then you grow up and be a daddy, then when you’re done doing that you become a grandpa and get to have a mustache (my sweetheart has a mustache), after becoming a grandpa you get to be like Nana (my dear little mother) and then when you decide you’re all done, you just go to heaven – Right dad?” His dad replied, "That pretty much sums it up".

Absolutely love this post, Adrienne!ReplyDelete
wonderful concept from one so young...he understands it better than we older ones do...ReplyDelete
If only we were all able to grasp the simplicity of your grandson's concepts. Why is it that we feel like we have to grow up and make things so complicated? I, for one, could use a good dose of that "child-like faith!ReplyDelete
Oh my...these kids know more than us don't they? Ha...how very sweet!
How darling! Lots of wisdom from that little 5-year-old!ReplyDelete
What a wise little one--he's adorable (well, your son, too!)ReplyDelete

My Mom always said "They are our Future"
That is so sweet. You are so right about babes. They have such great hearts before this old world messes it up.ReplyDelete
Out of the mouth of babes. Yup, that pretty much sums it all up now doesn't it?ReplyDelete
I saw your comment over at Tara's - Days Missed On A Hammock - and thought I would drop by. So glad I did. This was such a heartwarming story and such innocence!ReplyDelete
I also loved the post about your art. I read on a blog recently that we all doodle and I loved it so much I've done that on little Art Trading Cards - cause I can't draw a lick!
I'll be sure to be back and look around some more.
