On this Good Friday, I wanted to share this story because it is one of those sweet moments you always want to remember as a parent. My youngest is now 2 and is swiftly exiting the precious baby stage so I feel the need to cherish these times.
After church on Sunday we always ask the kids to “narrate” what they learned at Sunday School. We ascribe to the Charlotte Mason philosophy on educating our kids so narrations come pretty natural to them.
This past Sunday the kids were taking turns telling the stories they had heard. Bud told about Jesus praying in the garden. Peanut told about the soldiers arresting Jesus. Then I asked our sweet 2-year-old Squirt to tell us what he learned.
He held up his sweet baby hands and reached them out to me from his car seat and said:
It took me a minute to understand and then I realized that he was speaking of the nails in Jesus’ hands. It brought tears to my eyes.
My little miracle was discovering the amazing love of Jesus. Thank you, Lord. What a gift these children are.
But when the chief priests and the scribes saw the wonderful things that he did, and the children crying out in the temple, “Hosanna to the Son of David!” they were indignant, and they said to him, “Do you hear what these are saying?” And Jesus said to them, “Yes; have you never read,
“‘Out of the mouth of infants and nursing babies
you have prepared praise’?”
