Life Lessons

Lily was having a rough time just now.  She came up to me and said through tears, "My heart has a bad feeling in it."  I tried to disguise my chuckle and repeated what she said.  "Yeah, my heart has a bad feeling."  I asked her if maybe she ate too much.  "Yeah."

But then I realized this was a prime spiritual teaching opportunity ready to pass us by.  So I said "Lily, did you know when my heart feels bad I tell Jesus and he makes it feel better.  Do you want to say a prayer to Jesus?"  "Yes" she says.  Then unprompted folds her hands, bows her head and embarks "Dear Heavenly Father, thank you for today.  Please bless by heart to feel better.  AMEN."  To which Piper folded her hands and said "Amen."  I asked Lily if her heart felt better now and she said "YEAH!", smiled broadly and went off to play.

That is so sweet and beautiful! It makes me understand why Jesus said we should be like the little children.
