When Laurie and I got back from our church’s marriage retreat this weekend, I gave Nate the heart-shaped stress ball that was one of the trinkets every couple received. I told him it was his new ball, but he looked at it and said, “This is Nate’s heart? Nate got a new heart! God gave Nate a new heart!!!!”
It made me really happy to hear him say that, even if it isn’t “real” yet. How I wait and pray for the day when my children say that with understanding!
