I think my sweet little girl is nearing an understanding of Christ and His amazing gift to us. Please pray that my husband and I have wisdom is guiding our conversations with her. We took the kids to see Narnia on New Year's Eve and as we watched the movie I kept showing her the reflection of God/Christ in the story. Ever since her little mind has been trying to process the story and how it applies in her life.
The other day my husband and her were out running an errand and she began to ask him some great questions. I don't think she has complete understanding yet, but I think she is starting to feel the need for Him in her life.
I must confess, it is a bit scary while exciting at the same time the thought that she is gaining more independence. I no longer will be her spiritual guard...I will have to hand that over to the Holy Spirit...not that I do a better job at it, but I know the battles of her heart will become more intense. But I guess that is the beauty of growing in our lives, both for her and I.
So, if you think of it, keep her in your prayers as her little heart prepares to soar.
