Today, I am thankful for children's bible story books. Mili has one that she adores. She calls it her bible and we love that she understands there are some really important stories in that book.
Yesterday, while talking on the video phone to Nanny and Poppy, Mili was "reading" books. I was holding the book for her and she would "read" and then turn the pages. She had her bible at one point in the conversation and started "reading" the stories to us.
Mili: baby Jesus (she turns the page)
Mili: three wise ment (she turns the page)
Mili: man sick (she turns the page)
Mili: Zacheus (we stopped the conversation to sing the song) (she turns the page)
Mili: Jesus......Jesus loves me, lets sing it (a picture of Jesus getting baptized) (we sang Jesus loves me....she does the signs too, too cute)
Mili: Who is that? (it was a picture of Thomas knelling and touching Jesus' nail scared hands)
Brian: That is Jesus.
Mili: What happent to His hands, they have boo boos.
Me: bawling like a baby, sobbing, sniffing.
I couldn't even talk. I should have said those boo boos were for you. The time will present itself again and I will use it as a teachable moment. I was such a blubbering mess and Brian was truly not any better even after we got off the phone. It was truly one of those God moments when you know He is there in the same room with you and had a big fat smile is on His face.
We love you all!
Can't wait to see ya
