"Pay daddy dive"
"Hev Fadoo, pay dive home daddy geen caw."
Translation: "Heavenly Father, I pray that you would keep my daddy safe as he drives home in his green car."
I almost cried when I overheard my 21 month old son praying for his daddy. Normally, around 5 pm we sit down in the big blue chair in our living room and pray for Matt as he's driving home. We pray that God would keep him safe, and that we would be in a good mood when he gets home. But today Eli was praying all by himself. I didn't prompt him to say it, he wasn't just repeating what I say every day, he was really praying!
Although I don't know what he really knows about who God is, he's starting to get an idea... how exciting!
