Jesus Has Lots of Hands


We were driving to pre-school this morning when my four year old daughter mentioned to me that Jesus had lots of hands.

Me: Really? Why is that?

Missy: Because all the stars are His hands.

Me: Oh! How did you know that?

Missy: "The stars are His hands work too," she sings.

Me: Our God is so Big! So Strong and So Mighty, There's nothing my God cannot do! (I sing loudly as the whole van joins in chorus).
But, I think that means Jesus made the stars with His hands honey, not that the stars ARE His hands!

The van ride continued with some more great songs like "This little light of mine" and then the B-I-B-I-B.

Never heard of that one? What does it spell? Bible! (Just a little lesson in pre-school spelling for you today!)

To complete my joy for the morning, 3 year old little man explains to the librarian that a Q is like an O but with a cross. He says, "Jesus died on the cross, you know." Amen, my little 3 year old evangelist preacher!

The things that come out of kids' mouths are so honest. Hearing what your kids have to say should make you proud. God is certainly using you to teach them His ways.

I love it when kids talk about God. They have such a different perspective than we do. Which I sometimes believe is a good thing.

That is sweet, Heather. It caused me to remember the enthusiasm my kids had when they were little, everything centered around Jesus and family in their writing and artwork. I am glad I kept some of it!

Glad you had some "you" time too when they all went ice fishing. So refreshing!!

Kids are so precious.
