God's at the Top of My Love List

|


This is a picture my son made at school last week. It was a project with Valentine's Day in mind. They drew a heart and marked it off into sections. They then chose people they loved to write in each section.

Josh wrote in his 'Dad','Mom','Abby','My Family', and 'God'. Notice God took center stage in his heart. Pretty cool, huh?

I commented on how I thought it was cool that God was in middle.

His response?

"Well, of course, Mom. God is at the top of my love list!"

That is just precious! I just love how easy faith comes to our little ones! I have learned so much about God from my children that I never would have learned if they had not made me a mommy!

Blessings!

How precious is that! That son of yours has been raised in the presence of the LORD! Praise GOD! It will serve him well for the rest of His life to know that God is at the top of his love list.

I love it!!! This made me smile in the midst of blowing my nose and nursing my aching body. I appreciated this!!

Tell your precious one HE IS SPECIAL! I'm sure you already tell him that. :)
