The past week or so Luke has been working with Cora on praying. The other day, the three of us were at Kroger and he asks her to repeat what he says.

Luke: Cora, say, "Dear"
Cora: Dee
Luke: "God"
Cora: Dah
Luke: "thank you"
Cora: Taychu
Luke: "for"
Cora: poh
Luke: "this"
Cora: dees
Luke: "day."
Cora: day.
Mommy: "Amen."
Cora: Aaaman

Enough to melt your heart. Lately, any time our family is praying aloud, she reaches out to hold the nearest hand...so sweet. I wish I could freeze moments like these.

She mimicks everything. She has found her own little scream. I guess I should probably work on not using such a loud voice or yelling so much...

Oh be careful little eyes what you see...
Be careful little ears what you hear...
Be careful little feet where you walk...
Be careful little mouth what you say...
Be careful little hands, what you touch...
For the Father up above is looking down in love.

And the little almost 18 month old is watching every move and listening to every word and tone.


  1. so precious! What a sweet big brother, teaching his baby sister to pray. Wonderful

  2. JUST PRECIOUS!!!! Still melts my heart when I hear my own kids pray. They have a faith that can move mountains. I need so much to take a lesson from them!!! Miss you...Yes, let's get together soon...I'll email ya!

  3. So sweet. I can just envision God listening so carefully to every word of their prayers with joy in His heart.
    The most humbling thing about young children is the way that everything you say does come back with the same attitude. So glad that you are such a good example to your children.
    Praying for your daily strength and grace.
    Love and hugs and prayers,


Thank you for stopping by. We love hearing from you. Blessings!
