Elisa's first prayer

Tonight at dinner, after Greg had prayed, Elisa said that she wanted to pray. So we bowed our heads and closed our eyes once again. I expected her to decide that she didn't want to after all. So I was pleasantly surprised when she started,
"Dear Jesus"
Long pause - I nodded encouragingly at her.
"For the food."
Another pause.
"For Mommy and Daddy."

Cutest thing ever.

Greg had tears in his eyes.

From "fold it" to the whole prayer. Greg isn't the only one with tears. I can hardly imagine
Jesus' reaction.

How precious! Her first prayer to be one of thanks is awesome. Like Wanda, this Grandma has tears as well.
