A couple of days ago I was headed to the grocery store, gave the kids chores to do to keep them occupied while I was gone. I went down to the barn to say good bye and Jordan was having a hard time. He works so hard at keeping up with the big boys ALL of the time and he was just not having it, and having a MOMENT! I told his little cranky self to get into the van and he could go with me.
As we were leaving I told him I missed having our one on one. It had been awhile beings summer is here and the boys are home. I asked him if there was anything in particular that he wanted to talk about. His response? “I want to pray.” I said, “oh good what do you want to talk to Jesus about?” He said, “about being nicer.” OH MY GOSH, I AM ON THIS ONE DON’T YOU KNOW!!!! (and it wasn’t particularly about HIM being nice either.~ha!) I said, “perfect, you go first!”
He starts out like this each time, “Please Jesus, Oh please Jesus, make me be nicer.I need to be nice. Amen!” My turn, “Lord, I am in total agreement with Jordan, thank you Lord! Amen!
I think it worked, we had a great time together and neither one of us seemed grumpy after that. He does care about the littlest of things doesn’t He?
