God does live in your heart

One of my very good friends has a blog and she recently made a post about a conversation she had with her daughter about Cain. Her daughter has been praying for Cain every night and at each meal. I wanted to share with you the conversation my good friend told me she had with her daughter the day of Cain’s surgery. The following is what she had posted in her blog about that conversation.

Big A and I were talking about baby Cain today and I was trying to explain to her what the doctors were doing to help his heart. She kept asking questions re: how they got to his heart etc., and I told her that the doctor had to make a cut into his chest so that he could see his heart, but that Cain wouldn't feel any pain because he would be in a deep sleep. She thought about it for a minute and then said..."Will he get to see God?" and I said "who"....She said "the doctor." I thought about it for a minute and realized she was referring to what we tell her...that God lives in our hearts. I told her that the doctor will see God in Cain's heart (afterall, Cain's life is a miracle created by the Lord as all our children are) She then said..."mommy....I really want to see God too." I said "me too baby...me too."

Is that not the most precious thing you have ever heard? Kids thoughts are so precious and innocent. I can’t wait to have these precious conversations with Cain one day.

That is the sweetest story ever, you should share it with Cain's doctor!

Wow - that was really powerful. One of the biggest pieces of advice I could give any new mom is to talk to your child about the most important things in life b/c no matter what you think, they are listening and soaking it all in. Also, remember that when you are about to say something their little ears shouldn't hear.
