We usually say a prayer before dinner, and lately James has been bouncing out of his booster seat to be the one to offer it. He's only three, so he's still a little bit young to be able to compose it on his own. Usually Jared will say a line and James will repeat it.
This is how it went a few nights ago....
JARED: Thank you for this food.
JAMES: Thank you for this food.
JARED: Please help it to give us strength.
JAMES: Please help give us some drinks.
JARED: Bless us that the Holy Spirit will be in our home.
JAMES: Because I am very thirsty.
JARED: And we thank you for Jesus.
JAMES: And we thank you for cheese sticks.
Right from the heart. Well said, James. Amen!
