This one is for James.
It’s important to us that both Rhema and Hope learn about our faith in God. Hope has a toddler Bible and Brandon enjoys teaching her Bible stories and verses. He has taught her to quote John 3:16, and we are often amazed at the things she retains and understands at 2 years old.
The other night I heard a bit of their conversation.
“Hope, where is Jesus?”
(I thought, That question has been asked and debated for thousands of years. Oh, to have the faith of a child.)
“He’s in heaven.”
(Do I have a future Biblical scholar on my hands??)
“And where else?”
“In our hearts.”
(Send this girl to seminary! Break out the Hebrew and Greek!)
“Hope, whose heart is He in?”
“He’s in Daddy’s heart…
(Oh, bless this child! I hear the brush of angel’s wings.)
….And Mommy’s heart…
(Out of the mouth of babes, I tell you.)
…And Dora’s heart…
…And Boots the monkey… And…”
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16
