As many of us know, kids can sometimes say the cutest things … or the darndest things … or the funniest things … or the wisest things.
Here are a few excerpts from some of Cory’s prayers over the last couple of months. None of these phrases have been prompted by us … and I don’t believe we have ever talked politics with him. He just processes these things completely on his own with his little 7 year old mind that always seems to be whirring a mile a minute. He definitely is an exceptionally curious and inquisitive child who loves to explore.
“I’m thankful for the trees so we have air to breathe so we don’t die.”
“Help the poor people to get more money and help the rich people to share their money with the poor people.”
“Help the bad people to become good and the good people to become better. Help the good people to be good examples to the bad people.”
“Bless the family baby.”
“I’m thankful for clothes, because if we didn’t have clothes we would be naked.”
“I’m thankful for Jesus, because if we didn’t have Jesus, we wouldn’t have anything.”
I love this kid, even if I do get exasperated with him at times . He has such a big and gentle heart and he truly does try his best to do what is right.
