she gets it!

McKenna was NOT feeling good tonight. She was moaning and crying about how her stomach hurt. I was trying to figure out what was wrong and was trying to comfort her, but she was pretty much miserable. So I suggested that she go sit on the potty (I know, I know TMI) and once I got her settled she said "Mommmm! Privacy!" She always says that. So I left her in the bathroom by herself and stood outside the door.

I could her her whimpering because her tummy hurt so bad and then I heard her precious little voice say "Jesus. I need you to help me. Jesus will you please make my tummy feel better?"

And I cried. It's the first time I've ever heard to pray other than at bedtime or dinner time. Do you know how huge that is?? It means that she gets it. She understands that when she's hurting Jesus can help her. She said to me the other day " So what does Jesus look like anyway?" I love it that He's real to her. That even at the age of three she has a relationship with him. That tiny mustard seed of faith is growing strong in her heart already!
