Promise me you’ll always remember:  you’re braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.  –Christopher Robin to Pooh

Climbing up onto the changing table in his bedroom, Jordan told me today, “Mom, I’m climbing up to heaven.”  Madelynn was sitting on the floor with me and we both looked up just in time to see Jordan sprinkling baby powder on top of us.  “The powder changes you into a butterfly.” he explained, “You can fly like a butterfly now!”  I asked him where he and Maddi would like to fly.  Instantaneously he responded, “Never Never Land” and then instructed, “Put the powder on your elbows.  Good Job.  This makes you fly.  Maddi, do you need wings?”

Gracious God, hear the prayer of my children tonight.  Give them wings to fly higher than they dream.
