I almost missed today's picture.
Today I got set apart for my new calling, the Sacrament meeting piano/organ player. Well I was getting the blessing Bee sat perfectly still on my lap and watched the men. (I haven't said a prayer in church with my eyes closed the whole time since....yup June 07!
It's just amazing to me how this happens. Kids will be bouncing off the walls, screaming and running in Sacrament meeting but they ALWAYS calm down for a second while the prayers start. I don't know if it's just the kids in our ward, cuz that's all I have to go by but it's so true.
It's like they know who we are talking to. The little people of our ward are NOT quiet. It's just amazing to me.
My blessing was pretty long. Bee had been crying. That's why he was on my lap, to keep him quiet. He instantly went silent as the prayer started and stayed that way the whole time.
Bro Ellis, who sealed Chris and I, said something that I will never forget. He said, as Bee was crying his eyes out, that Heavenly Father hears babies cry. He knows why they are crying. This isn't the first time Heavenly Father has had two people, one big and one small, saying a prayer together. They just have different voices. What a great thought.
I just think of all the times I sit with Bee, rocking him to sleep, praying that he goes to sleep soon so I don't kill him (I totally wouldn't, you know that). That maybe he was saying prayers with me.
Well there's your thought for today...do babies talk with Heavenly Father? I'm interested to hear your comments.
