We were about to eat lunch Sunday, and my husband asked my dad to say the blessing. As we reached for each others' hands and bowed our heads, a little voice quietly began ...
"God is gweat, God is good, let us thank Him for our food. Amen."
We all sat in stunned silence, because that's the first time our little 2-and-half-year-old grandson Maddox had ever actually said the blessing by himself. We didn't even know he knew the words ... because he usually just says, "Amen," at the end when his big sister Avery says the blessing.
We were all overcome with emotion, and I will never, ever forget the feeling of that tiny hand in mine and that precious little voice saying the blessing for the first time. I felt God's presence, and know He was smiling down on Maddox with pride.
