Here's another picture from Grace's 20-month-old sitting. I really love this one! The photographer had her put her hands up by her face, but Grace kept moving them into prayer position and we told the photog to just take the picture like that. She's so funny when he says her dinnertime prayer. It goes like this "God, God, A-nen!"

That is so precious, and so very important. Having prayer be a part of life each and every day, provides a sound foundation for our little ones as they grow up and then venture out on their own. When life is difficult and one does not know where to turn, prayer is an integral part in the search ofr answers.

I could not agree more, Bananas! We say night-night prayers with Grace, too. She doesn't say anything but the resounding "A-Nen!" at the end right now, but we pray for her friends at school and our family so she can relate to what we're saying.
Now, the mealtime prayers are an entirely different story! She TOTALLY gets what we are praying for. In fact, PaPa received a stern scolding in the middle of Applebee's last weekend for daring to touch his fork before the blessing was asked. :lol: She said, "Papa! PaPa!" while folding her hands.
