vitamins and a super hero

i decided to participate with Meg and send some vitamins.
i showed the kids this.
we went to the store on Saturday morning.



Ty and Ella didn't really get it...but Jake had enough questions for all of us:)
after lots of discussion and explaining there was some silence.
then Jake says, "it seems like africa really needs a super-hero"
pause..."if i was a super-hero i'd go straight there"
*smile*
"i think if i had a super power, i'd want it to be the power to re-build broken things"
*swallow*
i needed this.
he has a great heart, and i needed to see it.
you know i needed to see it.
i can imagine God smiling down on a seven year old boy longing for......Him. Thinking of Him in his own innocent terms.
In his own way wanting to be God's hands...even if he doesn't know it yet.


after we talked Jake started practicing his "super re-builder" jumps.
that got some participation from the little guys.....

  2. Yes, you did need that glimspe with God's eyes for HIS child! Thank you Lord. Jake is a really special boy who will someday be a really special man. You're clearly the best momma for that scenario, whether you feel like it right now or not.
