the still waters

conversation tonight as i put william to bed:

me: goodnight, buddy boy. i love you.

william: i love you, too. and, jesus loves me, too.

me: jesus does love you, too.

william: jesus was a baby.

me: you're right. jesus started out as a baby.

william: he did growed up to a man.

me: he sure did. and he died so you could go to heaven.

william: heaven is good.

me: heaven is very good.

william: jesus and god live in heaven.

me: you're right. and, one day we'll get to live in heaven, too.

william: hey, where does the waters go?

me: what waters?

william: the waters the shepherd is in.

me: what are you talking about?

william: the still waters....the waters the shepherd plays in.

i guess this means that i still have some work to do on our memorization of Psalm 23. at least i know that he's somewhat listening!! :)

mighty powerful words from a two year old. Your heart should swell just knowing that he "gets it" at his young age. He'll figure out the still waters before too long. I read your blog about Memphis yesterday and laughed til I cried. Today I read this one and cried til I laughed!!! Thanks for sharing your life with us, Laura. Love you much...
