Why we get Christmas presents…

Jacey’s bedtime prayer tonight… *Miss J is just the web-friendly name we use for privacy protection – That’s my foster daughter –  Jacey’s foster sister.

“Dear God,

Thank you for helping me read a book today. A whole book.  That’s 11 chapters.

And thank you for the legos me and (Miss J) made.

And Happy Birthday when your birthday comes.

And I already told mommy, NeNe, and Papa this, but I wanted to tell you.

I think I know why we get presents at Christmas.  Because it’s your birthday –

and since you live in us –

well, in our hearts –

that’s why we get presents.

Please take care of daddy, and mommy, and (Miss J), and all of our family.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.”

  1. Love this. That sweet girl … Sending hugs and love her way and Miss J’s way and your way. 🙂 This made my morning.

  2. I love that girl. Love. Love. Love! She’s smart and creative and just freaking fantastic. Loooooooove!

    Her logic is impossible to dispute!

    “Dear God, everything Jacey prayed, I co-sign! Thank you for your abounding love and take care of this precious girl! Amen.”

      1. Of COURSE I prayed for your daughter! And I pray for you, and your family! As short a time as we have known each other, you have multiplied my blessings so much. I want those same blessings to abound in your family too! 🙂
