Who Loves You?

This post may contain affiliate or advertiser links. Read my full disclosure policy here.

Tonight Zachary was a little waylaid in having dinner because of a slight behavior issue (ahem). When he finally sat down to eat, long after the heightened emotions had relaxed, I crouched down next to him and asked, "Who loves you?"

He pointed his fork at me.

I asked again, "Who else loves you?"

He pointed his fork to his heart and quietly whispered something, so I tried to get him to repeat it. He repeated it a few more times and I finally heard, "Jesus."

With our older two there has always been a definite point or day that we can mark when they prayed and asked Jesus into their hearts, so I asked how he knew that Jesus was living in his heart. Zachary said that he had prayed and asked Him to come live there...but he did it all by himself and didn't tell us.

My next question was, "Did Jesus say anything to you when you asked Him?"

"No. He was here (pointing to his stomach and using his fork to trace a line up to his heart) and had to walk up here to get to my heart, so I couldn't hear Him."

  2. Oh, love your blog, glad we found each other. I might have to purchase your homeschool planner. My little one is three, almost four, and when he turned three I home preschooled him. We plan homeschooling in kindergarten too, and I am seriously already having a nervous breakdown about it. Again, I'm so glad I found you. I've looking to connect with more like-minded Jesus seeking ladies since I started my little blog. I'll talk to ya later, you are now officially added to my following.

  3. This is so darling...and so genuine. I adore the irresistible innocence of children, and how truthful they are in the way the Lord has spoken to them. While quirky, it is so endearing!
