Sometimes I just think my little Adam is way too smart.
As I was having a moment of quiet time, this morning, Adam wakes up, and comes skipping into the family room. He is visibly excited about something, so I ask him what he was so happy about.
Our conversation continued:
Adam: Mommy! Do you hear it?
Me: Hear what?
Adam: My heart mommy! Do you hear it?
Me: (trying to get him to elaborate) Well, no. What about it?
Adam: It's Jesus, Mommy! He's walking around in my heart! I. can. hear it!
Me: Oh, the pounding in you heart! It's Jesus?
Adam: Yes, mommy! I hear him, he's REALLY in my heart!
(I think he's been skeptical this whole time. He's REALLY trying to figure out this whole, Jesus is your heart thing we've been telling him about.)
Me: Ohhhh... I am glad you finally heard him!
He then comes over and puts his head on my chest.
Lifts his head.
Puts it on a different part of my chest.
Lifts his head quickly. moves it to the other side of my chest.
Adam: Mommy. I can't hear Him. He's not in your heart.
OUCH! ha ha ha.
Me: Adam, HE is there. I promise. He must be sleeping.
Whew. He took it.
But how sweet. I love that's he's trying to to logically connect everything we are teaching him, and what he's learning in Sunday School. I love it! :)
and I love this boy!
