Scripture reading

Last night we read Matthew 2 for our scripture. (It's actually a hybrid storytelling/scripture reading for Abby...but it works!) This is the chapter that talks about the wise men coming to see Jesus and the angels giving warnings to protect the baby Jesus from King Herod. Abby wanted to say our family prayer after that and in her prayer she said,

"Thank you for keeping baby Jesus safe so that we could love Him."

I nearly cried. I love this girl! She's been asking so many questions about Jesus, Heaven, etc. and it's been so interesting to see how her mind works. Love her!

That is so sweet! Out of the mouth of babes, right? We really should be more grateful to Heavenly Father for such things! Thanks for sharing the example.:)
