Good morning, Dear God,
I offer to You:
my thoughts, words, and actions,
and all that I do.
Bless me, O Lord, and make me like You today.
Lately she says it all on her own without my prompting. I was so proud of her last Sunday when she said it on our way to church. I pulled into the parking lot, got out my phone, and asked her to say it again for me:
Hannah and I talk about how important that is - to be like Jesus. I know she's young, but I think she is beginning to understand what that means. To be kind, to share, to love others... To ask God to make you like Him is a big request and a big responsibility, but it is our goal as Christians. When it comes to raising children, that lesson is more important than any other to Joe and me.
