Today we were walking on campus looking for sticks, as all two years olds MUST do daily. We were looking for "spider sticks". What is a spider stick, you may ask?? Well, it's a big stick with lots and lots of "legs" (small branches). Caleb always seems to find spider sticks to take on our walk, but Alethia struggles a bit with it. Well, today Caleb found his spider stick and Alethia was rather distraught because she couldn't find one.
Caleb said, "Don't worry Lai lai, Jesus is wit you." I was stunned, so I asked him to repeat what he'd just said, so he said it again. I said, "Caleb, you're right Jesus is with her isn't he?"
He said very matter-of-factly, "Yeah, Jesus lives in her heart, so she doesn't have to cry, He's with her." Is there anything better??
Well, maybe there is.....we prayed and asked Jesus to help us find a spider stick for Alethia and after 2 minutes, we found not only one but TWO spider sticks for her!! They were perfect!! Another Double Blessing for the Skinner's!!
PS We used clippers on Caleb's hair last night....what do you think?? Alethia loves to run her fingers through it, it's so cute because he's been letting her do it!!
