Just now I was listening to Lucy singing in a very sweet voice, "Pwaise Him, Jesus, Pwaise Him." It reminds me of what a blessing it is to be able to share my faith with her, and for Nathan and I to be a witness in and out of our home.
It makes me smile to know that she is learning the Truth. She knows that church is where we learn about God and Jesus (we are still working on the Holy Spirit), sing and see friends. She also knows that at home we can sing to God, and that the hymnal has many songs in there for that purpose. Her favorite hymn is Praise Him, and she asks to sing it every day. I love it!
Every night when Nathan puts her to bed he pats her back while they pray together and then sing praises to God. She loves that time with Nathan, and so does he. Throughout the day she will often ask for us to pray. I ask her who she wants to pray for, and then we say a short prayer (since that is all her patience will allow). She usually asks to pray for family or friends from church/play group. It is so sweet.
Also, Lucy has taken a fancy to my shoes and clothes. Yesterday she was wearing my socks and tennis shoes outside. It was hilarious. Today she has on one of my sweaters I used to wear to work, with a pair of black dress shoes. I guess it is a good thing she likes to dress up...I am making her some dress up items for Christmas.
