You know, there are just some moments in life that, as a mother, you want to hold forever. Being a mom can be so difficult, and you have days when you think, what were we thinking? But of course, you remember, they are truly blessings from the Lord. I had one of those moments yesterday...
I was putting Lilla (4) down to sleep, we were doing our normal bedtime prayers, when she suddenly said to me, "Mama, I won't bow down to a King, I'll only bow down to Jesus."
Which, of course, absolutely took my breath away. My prayer over her so many nights has been that she would love Jesus and follow Him all of her days. It's difficult sometimes to see that in a four year old though, as they are very sinful and selfish. Um, a lot like a 35 year old I know.
I digress, I honestly don't remember talking to her about the passage in Daniel when Daniel and Shadrach, Meschach and Abednego said this, so I'm assuming it happened in Sunday School. I know it wasn't this past week as they talked about Peter in prison for being a Christian. Apparently during the lesson she shouted out, "That's not right! You shouldn't go to prison for talking about the Lord." Amen sista!
All that to say, it warms me that somewhere she has stored up in her heart these beliefs and theologies. God is working in her. He is answering my prayer, and I, I am thankful.
