God & Brennan

Last week I told my friend that I wanted to make God proud.  His response, “God is proud of you”.  I didn’t believe him.  Not that I thought he was lying, but how could he know if God was proud of me?  But God.  I have to say that again.  But, God.  You see that same evening, God allowed Brennan to tell me that he loved me and tell me that I’m the best mommy in the world.  Why, you might ask?  Because I take him to church.  God was answering me.  He was letting me know that he was proud of me because simply, I take my son to church. I loved it.  


God’s pride in me was further demonstrated to me how proud of me he is with Brennan when I took Brennan to school on Friday. Brennan said that he doesn’t like Easter. I asked Why? He said “Because I didn’t get an Easter basket from my teacher”. I asked “Why didn’t you get an Easter basket?” He responded “Because I messed up on my shapes and now I don’t have any candy.” I replied, “I’m sure there is more to this story, but Easter isn’t about getting candy. It’s about the resurrection of Jesus.” So, we spent the next five minutes talking about Jesus and he said, “Mommy, we need Jesus don’t we?” Yes, was my reply. He said, “Like in the Lion King when Nala tells Simba we need you, that’s how we need Jesus?” Can I just tell you that I broke down in tears? Wow!



If you’re like me and you’re trying to remember that scene, I’ve attached it for you.
