Bible Reading and Sweet Praying

So, I thought I'd share a few segments from our story and prayer time tonight...

I started reading JD the Bible tonight. He got a rhyme Bible for his first birthday and it's been in the top of his closet for some time. It has paper-pages and JD went through a big page-tearing phase. So...it was up there for safe keeping. Anyways. Tonight was the night. JD had a bookfair at his school a couple weeks ago and I was looking for a good kids Bible there. I couldn't find one so we just went with the rhyme Bible.

I was so surprised, pleasantly surprised to read it while he thoroughly enjoyed it. He loved it and was so upset when we stopped for the night. I am constantly surprised with how much he is really learning and picking up on. The Bible itself has the catchy rhymes and pretty good children terms, while still staying very consistent with the Word. Anyways, he was glued to it and was really following everything. I would stop every once in a while to ask him questions and he knew all the answers.

We were making our way through Genisis and had gotten to the story on Noah. I knew he would love it because it was about a boat. And animals. He did indeed. I was explaining the whole "people being bad and brothers making their sisters cry (y'all, it really did say that)" and how it made God sad. To which he replied...

"Mama, I am kinda like God."
"Oh, yeah?"
He said, "Yes. Because I said, 'Don't eat that fruit people!"

Oh my...what do you even say to that? I laughed and then hugged him because he's getting it. Afterall, he was create after His own image.

We finished the reading of the Bible and started our prayers. I did my usual praying while he repeated or agreed. When I finished I asked if he wanted to say anything to God? He said "Yes, I want to tell him happy birthday. I want to get a microphone so I can sing God happy birthday." Ok, sounds good to me.

Pure preciousness.
