"Once our eyes are opened, we cannot pretend we don't know what to do. God, who weighs our hearts and keeps our souls, knows that we know, and holds us responsible to act." Proverbs 24:12

Amazing love

I was having a conversation in the car with the kids about their teacher, friends at school, etc. I then decided to ask them about their best friends. It went like this:

ME: Anna Grace, who is your best friend?

ANNA GRACE: (after a long thought filled pause) Ummm....Kennedy.

Kai, who is YOUR best friend?

KAI: (also stopping for a bit to think) Ummm.....Jesus!

(quite surprised, not to mention thrilled, at his response since we were talking about school friends) Wow, Kai! Jesus is your best friend? Why's that?

KAI: (responding with a tone as if I should have known the answer) Because Mama. Jesus loves me more than everybody in the whole world!

Now, if that don't make a Mama's heart swell, I don't know what does!
