Friday Praise & Prayers

I came home from a meeting last night and O was still up. He wanted to lay in bed with me to fall asleep. We climbed in and he began telling me about the book he is currently reading. Now let me tell you, O is usually our quiet one. He thinks before he speaks. His kindergarten teacher told me that she learned early on that when he had something to say, she stopped and listened, because he didn’t talk, just to talk. He shares because he really has something to say.

But last night as we lay beneath the comforter {me still in my jeans & sweater}, he told me about this book like it was a movie he watched. His details were amazing, like he saw it with his eyes. I could barely follow as he went from one chapter to the next, pausing only to let me take a few ‘mama & O’ pics {I am trying to not just take pics of the kiddos alone, but be in the pics, with them}…

He smiled and went right on talking about the next chapter…

and the next…

God, I am thankful for that moment…

Time to hear Owen’s voice.

Time to let him share his brilliant mind with me.

Time for a little one on one with my 2nd born.

God, my prayer today is for Your hope to shine brightly. May I see You in every part of my day.

What are you thanking God for today?

  1. ~ I thought of you this morning when I was reading my bible. In my daily reading this morning, I came upon the passage in Matthew when the disciples ask Christ who is the greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven. Jesus replies that no one is greater than a child and we must humble ourselves like a child in order to be part of His Kingdom. Christ went onto say in Matthew 18: 10-11 “Beware that you don’t look down on any of these little ones. For I tell you that in heaven their angels are always in the presence of my heavenly Father.” I instantly thought of Lulu and that NOW she is always in the presence of our heavenly Father! What a definite God-moment for me, and especially now as I read your entry and see your humbleness with Owen and that HIS angels are in God’s presence this morning and always!

    Have a beautiful day, Cami!

  2. What blessing come when we slow down and listen to our son’s voices. My first-born… almost 15 years old… still reads to me. Even though his sweet, little boy voice now has a deep resonating quality… I cherish those times. Thank you, Lord for your blessings.
