Thank You Jesus!

It is so timely with Thanksgiving right around the corner that JD has started to understand the idea of being thankful. We always kick off our mealtimes with JD saying Thank You Jesus Amen! JD has also said it at bedtime for his nighty-night prayer.

Recently, he has started to add what he is thankful for in his prayers. I just think this is so precious and it has actually brought me to tears a few times when I hear all the things for which he is thankful.

Especially when I hear things like "Thank you Jesus for the muddy mud (he loves to watch dirt car racing with his daddy)." There are some other references to washing cars and race cars too...you can see where his interests lie these days.

I'm very hopeful that we have a prayer warrior on our hands!!

Here is one of his nightly prayers (sound only)...

I love it! Daniel and I were just talking last night about Kenna praying...we had to stop dinner three of four times last night so we could "pay" again and all hold hands. They are too cute at this age!!

Mandy,
Thanks so much for posting this, it is priceless!! I love that you are teaching J.D. to pray, not just at mealtimes. I hope that when he is 16 you are still saying nighttime prayers together, as in my opinion there is no greater gift you could give each other!

Love it! That is precious! My favorite lately is EB asking God to bless baby Meg inside Mandy's belly! She can't wait to meet her!
