My heart is full

When my daughter woke up from her nap, I made her a snack and turned on the television so I could get a start on the mountain of laundry that has accumulated over the past week. There is a station called Smile T.V. and I can rest assured that everything she sees and hears on there will be safe.

So my daughter is watching a show and I am running back and forth between the living room and my bedroom gathering clean laundry and hangers. A commercial of some sorts comes on that I have seen before but not really given it much thought. A pretty song is playing in the background as we watch some organization pass out toys to sick/dying orphans (it is not graphic...all the kids look "normal"). All of a sudden I hear Constance say, "Nap mama?" as she is watching this commercial. I looked up as I was trying to head down the hall and said, "Yes baby, some of those kids are napping." After a brief pause, I said that, "those kids were sick and that we needed to pray for them." Without skipping a beat Constance walked over to me, took my hand and bowed her head! It took me a second before realizing what she was doing! I prayed a quick prayer for the little sick kids and we went back to doing what we had been doing.

Lord, may you always give my daughter a heart of compassion for the sick, hurting and lonely. May you make her strong enough to be able to handle what she sees.


  1. What a precious testimony! And it is obvious you and Keith are setting an example, because she knew immediately what to do when you said you needed to pray for the children. I love it that she took you at your word, and wanted to pray "NOW!"

    Love you bunches, Mom

  2. That is the sweetest thing I've ever heard! Can't wait to see you, lil' bro, and the kids at Christmas! Love ya!
