Exposing My Heart
My son is an angel...really. We were out the other night experiencing a new restaurant (we're big time foodies around here if you can't tell from my previous blog entries - or the size of my buns for that matter). Mat said his food was like a dance party on his taste buds, and then Andrew commented that we were like a dance party on God's taste buds. Great thoughtful analogy of God's love for us and from a 5 year old! Blew me and Mat away!
I've also recently gotten some new shirts. Most of the styles now are low cut shirts, and I'm a very modest person who doesn't like to be or feel "exposed." I've purchased some very modest shirts, but they are still low cut. Andrew told me yesterday that he didn't like "my heart showing." He said that it was too close to revealing my "oobies." WOW! That made me feel first horrible, then excited that my son was interested in modesty too, and finally it made me in a hurry to purchase some tank tops to make my shirts cover my heart! What sweet way to share his desire for modesty.
He may be rambunctious, but he certainly is a sweet kind hearted child. I love daily watching him grow, and I often find it difficult to remember that he's only 5. I only remember when I have to tell him the same thing 100 times as he gets distracted by toys or when he begs his dad to walk down the hall b/c he's scared of the dark. Most of the time we share such adult conversations that I don't even think of him as a baby.
