the sweetest

I was just watching a little Beth Moore on TV. She was talking about our calling to reach the world, and not just the comfort of our own little selves. It was showing footage of her time in Africa. The children were dirty and lined up for food. Gibson said, "Don't worry Mom, you'll just go get our baby brother from Africa, brush him off, and he'll be so happy!". Then out of nowhere he began singing "Jesus Loves the Little Children".
I LOVE his little heart!
And now I need to go wipe my tears...

Oh, how sweet. I remember when we were in process with Beckett's adoption, Lane would bust out with these amazingly powerful statements about adoption that made us think "is she some kind of prophet?" It is so humbling to see the faith of a child. CANNOT wait to meet your new baby boy in a few months.

Wow. Children have such pure hearts.
That picture of a little baby being brushed off and happy is so real.
I wish we could all stay like that in our hearts.
