Prayer Book

For our devotions a couple of nights ago I made Kaylee a prayer book. In it I put "I am thankful for"...(Mommy, Daddy, Mimi, Grammy Tammy, and My Family). She is learning about prayer in the simplest and most beautiful way. She is learning that prayer is simply talking to Jesus and that we can pray for those we love and we can pray over things that hurt us.

That night while laying her down to go to sleep she told me that she had a boo boo on her knee. So I asked her if she wanted Mommy to pray over it. She said yes and I did. Then before walking out of the room she asked me to pray over every possible "boo boo" on her body! Then today, she saw a scrape on her Daddy's leg and asked him if he had a boo boo and she said, pray? So she prayed over her Daddy's boo boo. I believe it was honestly the sweetest and most beautiful thing I have ever experienced.

I am so thankful that God put two beautiful children in my care. I take very seriously the command to raise your children up in the Lord. I want my life to be a model for my children. That is my greatest prayer!
