my boy’s prayer…

My five year old Kristo knows that before we eat, one of us leads grace, and I usually encourage him to lead. Today his prayer at lunch was:

“Lord, thank you for the food. Thank you for mommy and me and the little rat. In Jesus’ name, amen.”

My heart skipped a beat knowing that his prayer was so simple, yet so sincere…and that he’s got such a beautiful heart to care for the tiniest little thing that obviously needed help.

*Just so you know the story, earlier in the day we saw an extremely tiny mouse which was obviously still learning how to walk/crawl. Kristo wanted to give it cheese and well, he couldn’t understand why we weren’t helping it when it obviously looked like it needed to be cared for.
