Every night Jason puts Blake to bed. I then go in a half hour or forty five min. later and rock Blake. Usually he is still awake and as I rock him, I smile at him, he smiles at me, he giggles, i tickle my nose with his nose, and he giggles some more...it's a sweet time that I always look forward to.
As I went to rock Blake to sleep tonight, it was the same routine...mommy smiles at Blake, Blake smiles at mommy, mommy tickles Blake's nose with her nose, and then Blake giggles. it was a sweet moment, but something followed that was even sweeter. Blake kept eye contact with me for a little longer than normal and i looked into his eyes as he grinned at me and said, "Blake, Jesus loves you. I hope you have a relationship with Jesus early on." As i said that he folded his little hands together and bowed his head and closed his eyes. He thought i was praying. I was so touched by the fact that when I said Jesus he equated that with us praying.
What a sweet moment for Blake and i to share. I do hope he knows early on in life that Jesus loves him so much...and hope i can be the one to lead him to Christ when he is old enough.
