The Prayer of a Child...

This year Parker is attending our Christian Day School operated in cooperation with our church. Each morning they say the Pledge of Allegiance & the Pledge to the Bible, along with saying a prayers of their own.
Yesterday, Parker's teacher told his Grandpa Bob about one of his recent prayers. She said it about broke her heart.

"Dear Jesus,
My Great-grandma is up in Heaven with you & I really miss her!
Could you tell her 'hi' for me?"
Last night Bob could barely get the words out to tell me about his conversation with Miss Willard.
Sometimes we think that our little ones are not touched so much by the grief that we bare. But evidently Parker still feels some sorrow in the loss of his beloved "Grandma Mother". Heaven is very real to Parker. He doesn't question it's existence, just accepts that it's really there. May his heart always be so tender!

When we were out calling on Saturday, Paige lost her balloon and it quickly went up, up, and away! She started crying and Parker came over to tell her it was ok and that Grandma Thompson must have wanted a balloon.

Ahhh! He used to say that about his Grandpa Brown but I think he is forgetting about him. Not long after Dad died, Parker lost some balloons & he said they were going up to see Grandpa. Something about that kid....
