A Dinner Conversation....

Recently, while eating dinner one evening, my ever over-analyzing, deep thinking, and thought provoking daughter stated the following:

Ya know, Mom.....that not knowing Jesus is like being an orphan.

Really, how's that?

Well, when you know Jesus you are part of a family....the church family.

Mmmm, hmmmm.

Like when Avery got baptized....the church people all clapped and the Pastor said she is a child of God and that we are so happy to welcome her into our family.....

I liked when he said that.

Long pause....lots of thinking going on....

I am glad that Avery is part of our family....and that she is not an orphan any more.

Me too, sweet baby, me too!


  1. Oh! How precious!!!! It's amazing that Shea already understands this...I can't wait to see what God is going to with her in the future!!!

  2. Tara,

  4. Oh, my word, there are adults that don't even get that!! Sounds to me like you're feeding that child more than macaroni! :o) Awesome...

  5. It's amazing how much they pick up, isn't it? Little ears are always listening, and little minds are always processing!
