Got a couple "Sophie sayings" that made me smile today :)

1) Sophie was using the toilet and I suddenly hear her excitedly yell, "Mommy!! I am fitting better on the toilet without having to hold myself up! My bum must be getting bigger! Yay!!!" (all the while I'm thinking, "let's see if you are still cheering about that in 20 years, lol)

2) During prayer last night, Sophie decided to pray for a very special person to "find a husband". Here's her prayer:

" And Lord, I just pray you find ______ a husband NOW. Just take parts of her body and make it into a man. Amen"

Can you tell who had just heard the story about Adam and Eve???

From Sophie's mouth to God's ear

I have to say, there is something about hearing a young child pray with such faith and conviction, that touches my heart! Sophie has become quite the powerful pray-er. Every night before bed, she prays first, and then we do. It's cute to hear the things she says. She always prays for: 1) Something she is thankful for, 2) Something she wants Jesus to help her with, and 3) Someone to pray for. This was her prayer tonight:

"Dear Jesus, I'm thankful that we went to Red Robin and got a balloon. Please help me listen and obey the first time. And talk nice to my friends at preschool tomorrow. I pray for Mommy that you will bless her tomorrow at work. With peace. And strength. And that the kids will listen. I just love you so much Jesus. Come more in my heart and live there. Take away my sin. Amen".
