I opened my hand bag the other day and smiled. I found one of Ksena’s stuffed animals, Elephant.
Elephant is one of the latest entrants into her collection. This one has a special place in my heart. A few days ago, as she sat in her car seat, she had a really sweet conversation with him.
“Elephant, come! Let’s pray. Close your eyes, and put your hands together.”
Then they begun to say the Lord’s prayer
“Our Father who art in heaven….”
After that, she prayed for the imaginary food that they would eat.
“Thank you Jesus, for the food…”
I looked at her through the rear view mirror and smiled.
My heart swelled with joy. It affirmed that she is learning more about God every day . Also, I was blown away by her desire to teach the stuffed animal what she knows about Jesus. Oh how I pray that this desire will continue for many years to come, that she will share the gospel with many, first in her sphere of influence and then with those beyond.
This reminded me of the great commission:
Do you know someone who could use a prayer? If you are in the same town, stop by and stand with them in prayer.
Do you know someone who needs to hear the gospel? Meet them and tell them about Jesus.
As I type this, Ksena is pushing Elephant around on her tricycle.
Have a blessed weekend.
