Sweet Bedtime chats

Every night during our bedtime routine- Nathan and I read The Big Picture Story Bible. My sweet friend Susan Maynor gave it to us before we left STL and it has become our favorite. It has great pictures that keep Nathan's attention as well as a sound kid friendly perspective on the main stories of the Bible. When we finish it we just start back over. I am sure we have read through it 50+ times and the binding has all come loose. It is great for Nathan- b/c he tells me who all the characters are before we read the chapter. Tonight we read the last Chapter- summarizing John's revelation in the last days and Heaven. This chapter always leads to great 3 year old questions. Tonight, asked more questions about Heaven.

Question: who will be there? Nathan: Jackson, Catch, Evan, Naomi, Daddy, Papa , Gigi, Pilot Noah, Nicademas, Peter, Abraham and Jesus.

Question: How do you get there? Nathan: It is really far away-over the mountain , through the rain, swim through the water, pass the zebra and elephant, pass the big tree then it is at 756( which is our address) Heaven.

Question: When do we get to go? Nathan: When Daddy takes us

Prayer: Dear God, Thank you for Jackson, Catch and Evan going to Heaven with me. Thank you for Jesus being there. In Jesus name, AMEN

I do pray these things make there way to his heart soon.
