We’re getting into that phase of our kid’s lives where they’re starting to understand who Jesus is. Well, at least Ezra’s getting there. Yesterday at church, he made a cross with red string on it and said, “This is how Jesus died”. Then it somehow turned into a rocket ship. We think this might be his understanding of the ascension! It’s pretty hilarious right now, but so much incredible fun at the same time!
Then last night, I went to pray with Keziah and she interrupted and said, “Hi Jesus, Bye Jesus!” as she pretended to have a phone to her ear. Maybe she doesn’t get the whole thing, but the innocence and excitement on both their faces as they spoke about and to God yesterday filled a spot in our hearts.
Somewhere along the way, I lost that excitement and that creativity. May God grace me with that innocence again this morning. May His creativity refill my soul. And may I remember the privileged it is to co-create with Him here!
