“Tucking the Girls Into Bed”

I was tucking the girls into bed last night, and somehow we got on a discussion about baptism. I think they had mentioned at church that they were going to have a baptism soon. Perhaps that is why it was on Maya’s mind. She has been contemplating it for some time now.

And so the conversation goes like this.

Maya: “Mom, I really need to think about this baptism thing.”
Me: “Sure honey, whenever you and Father make that decision that it is time to tell the world, you go for it.”
Maya: “Yea. I know.”
Me: “Good night, girlies. Love you soooo much!”
Maya: “Mom, you know that is why I like the God cards. Well the Me and Story cards too. They help me understand what I am doing anyways. I am glad we have had those. Thanks, Mom.”

AHHHHHHHHHHH! YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You know those miracle moments – just had one when she said those words to me.

This is the strength of the Language cards – God, Story and Me cards. They give Maya that foundation, an understanding of her faith and why she would even consider something like baptism. And what she is saying she believes when she makes that step!

These things are too wonderful!
