Dear God...

"I'm going to talk to God..." I heard Sarah say and saw her out of the corner of my eye go behind a tree. A few minutes later and she came over to me saying "He said JUST WAIT".
Confused I asked "What did you ask HIM?".
"I said Dear God can I have a willow tree and He said just wait". And she ran off to play.
Hmmm....we had just been at Willow Valley park and she loved playing beneath the old willows.
A few minutes later she told me "Sometimes God says Yes, sometimes he says No, sometimes he says wait, and sometimes he says it's just not time."
I was blown away...out of the mouths of babes...a sermon for the day. I was shocked. Later I realized she was reciting a line from a Hermie movie but regardless the willow tree prayer was all Sarah! Love that girl!

And on a different note. Hope is walking! She still crawls because it is faster but more and more she is walking and standing! I always marvel how the amazement of the first steps is not lost with each child!

I love this girl too!
