Princess had a dream last night. It was really wonderful!

She dreamed that Jesus was on the Cross and she was on the cross with Him. They both died and then rose again. Mary was sad and didn’t see the tomb. Then two angels came. One stood at the head and one at the foot. Then Mary saw a man and said, “Are you the gardener?” The man said, “I’m your God” and Princess was on Jesus’ back. (That is the quick version of what she said; most wording exact.)

How very theological of her. She amazes Chris and I daily with her wisdom. Mark 10:13-16 says,

13 People were bringing little children to Jesus to have him touch them, but the disciples rebuked them. 14 When Jesus saw this, he was indignant. He said to them, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. 15 I tell you the truth, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.” 16 And he took the children in his arms, put his hands on them and blessed them. (NIV)

Princess, who will be 5 in December, accepted Jesus into her heart at the age of three. Her amazing understanding of theological truths can only come from her listening to God. We already allow her to take communion because of what we see her understanding. I know that only God can impart such knowledge and that because she is a child she is more open to it than most adults. I thank God for allowing us the opportunity to raise our two wonderful children and for giving us the ability to help them learn more about God. We do devotions every night, but just reading Bible stories cannot impart the knowledge that Princess has. And really, the only reason we do devotions so regularly is because Princess refuses to go to bed without it. Thank you Princess for your child-like devotion to our wonderful God and Savior.
