Anderson Melts My Heart

How is it that my sweet 4 year old son, Anderson, can melt my heart in a jiffy? He's really good at it. Watch out he might melt yours as well if you keep on reading...

On Sunday, shortly after church, he came up to me and said,"Mommy, I can say in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.". I Said,"that's great!"

As he was walking away, I heard him say, "Heavenly Father" and then he preceded to practice saying a prayer, even the older kids noticed him practicing.

So last night, at dinner time, I asked him to say the prayer and he said, "sure, I can do it!!!".

This was the first time he said the prayer without any help, all on his own. When he was done, we all said,"great job, Anderson, you did it all by yourself!" He then clapped his hands together and said, "yep, I DID IT!"-- with the biggest smile on his face. Too cute.

Oh, that is too, too precious! It's a thrill to see your young children grow spiritually...and also very gratifying to see your adult children teach their children about eternal things. You and Aaron are wonderful parents...your children are blessed to be in your family!
