Not So Wordless Wednesday

Yesterday, Christopher was home from school. He was still pretty sick yesterday and mostly slept, propped up in a chair on his pillow so he could breathe better. Anyway, we were watching the Inauguration because it was history in the making. As the minister prayed for the President, Christopher, sat up and began praying along with him, quietly, but very serious. We had discussed how we as Christians should pray for our leaders. Christopher took this very seriously. It was so precious and I wish that all believers took prayer this seriously as to sit up out of their sick bed (well chair in this case) and prayed for their leader regardless of whether they voted for him or not. Truly out of the mouth of babes. And a little child shall lead them. Too many times my son has been that message to me that God used to make me think about attitudes and actions.

Also, I did not get a picture of it, but Jennifer took the oaths of office for the Vice President and President...hand raise....repeating in her two year old dialect word for word what they said. And she went around the rest of the day saying "So hept me Dod". (So help me God). Ahhh, the joy of watching your children never gets old!
