for mother's day, alex got me the book "when helping hurts... alleviating poverty without hurting the poor... or yourself". i have been wanting this book for a while and am excited to read it.
in the first chapter, the author shares a prayer that his three year old daughter prayed. it is so profound, yet spoken as only a three year old could say it:
"dear Jesus, please come back soon, because we have lots of owies, and they hurt."
sounds very similar to the way jesus himself taught us to pray: "your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven" (matt 6:10)
i truly hope that esther (and all of our children) will have that deep of an understanding of the gospel by age three.
