Give your balloons to the Lord.

Wednesday, May 20, 2009

This morning, as Q's eating breakfast in the kitchen and I'm putzing about with yarn swaps in the dining room:

Gracie appears with her prized pink heart helium baloon tied to her foot. "Okay, Mom, I'm ready for God."

I have her repeat herself a couple of times to make sure I'm hearing her right. Then I ask why she has her balloon tied to her foot.

"Well, I just want to make sure I can give it to him for a present. I want to give Him a nice present."

I'm now being instructed to pray/write messages to God and Jesus all over the balloon.

I'll take pictures and post them once we get finished.

(She was very persistent about this project, and a few days after we wrote on it, we released it in the front yard so that it could go "up to God". It's probably a momma thing, but I'm fascinated with her heart and her thinking about this. I did not prompt any of the messages on the balloon-- she dictated every one.

I want to give you a present, Jesus and God.

Also these are great:

I love you, God and I love you, Jesus. And thank you for our food and macaroni and cheese.


Thank you
I'm going to bring it (my money) to church for you and put it in the box.
I love the Fairies: Iridessa, Silvermist, Fawn, and Tinkerbell.
I want to give this balloon to God because I love Him. Now!

Love, Gracie
