{documented}

This post is going to be pictureless and may be completely boring for my readers, but I can't ever forget this day.....

I just put my sweet girly down to bed and as per usual, knelt by her bed while she cuddled on her pillow and said bedtimes prayers.

I thanked Jesus for the day, for the rain, prayed that God would keep the baby safe and healthy and strong, bring daddy home safe from bible study and that Jesus would be with Denay and give her a good night sleep.

When I looked up, Denay had moved to the side of the bed and was also kneeling with her hands folded. I said "Amen" and then Denay said she wanted to pray too.....so I bowed my head again and she proceeded as follows....

"Dear Jesus....bless Denay a really good leep (sleep), bless mommy really good leep. bless daddy home safe. bless baby get strong. tait-tu (thank you). amen"

Then she wanted to pray again and she repeated the above, asking Jesus to make mommy strong and daddy strong and Denay strong and bless bible study and make baby safe.....

I've had an extremely emotional week and my poor daughter has seen me cry too many times, but I just couldn't help but hold her and weep.

How beautiful is the innocence of the heart of a child.
