{As I was tucking Taylor in and getting ready to pray for her}
Taylor: Mommy, I wanna go to heaven to see Jesus. (this isn't the first time she's asked this)
Me: You do?
Taylor: Yeah, but you have to die to go to heaven and I don't wanna die, I just wanna go see Jesus.
Me: I wanna see Jesus too.
Taylor: But you don't want to die?
Me: Not yet but someday we'll die and get to be with Jesus in heaven.
Taylor: But I wanna see Jesus now. Can he come down from heaven to see me?
Me: I don't know honey. But we can talk to Jesus anytime we want and he listens to us. He's our friend now, and we can talk to him anytime we want to even though we can't see him, he's always with you.
Taylor: But Jesus said, Let the children come to me, and I want to come to him. {I seriously almost cried at this point, because she was so serious and was all but teared up herself, the girl knows the verse and she's trying to apply it, praise God!}
Me: We can come to him in prayer and talk to him anytime we want until one day when we'll be with him in heaven forever. Won't that be amazing, to be with him forever.
Taylor: Yeah, I just wish I could see him now.
Me: Me too.

Luke: It makes Jesus sad when you don't share and aren't nice to people.
Me: You're right. What makes you say that?
Luke: Some of the kids weren't being nice.
{later while playing legos}
Luke: Look Mommy, Taylor and I are sharing and being nice. We're making Jesus happy! :)

While I'm getting ready for church this morning I hear Luke singing at the top of his lungs..."Thank you for the cross, thank you for the cross, thank you for the cross MY FRIEND!" {if that doesn't prepare your heart to worship... :)}


{In the car}
Me: What's your favorite animal?
Taylor: A ground hog.
Nick: Eww
Taylor: No, stop it Daddy, that's not nice. They are not ew, they are nice.
Nick: When did you ever pet one. They will bite you.
Taylor: No they won't. They are nice Daddy.
Nick: Who told you they are nice?
Taylor: Jesus did.
{what do you say to that lol}


{Taylor "reading" a book}
Taylor: That's dangerous.
Me: What's dangerous?
Taylor: This, God made it that way.

{over hearing their conversation this morning}
Taylor: Luke, that hurts my feelings. {pouting}
Luke: Taylor, I don't understand what you're talking about. {looking concerned}
Taylor: You're making me sad Luke. It's not nice.
Luke: Oh, okay. I'm sorry.
Taylor: Thank you. {attitude completely changes to chipper}


{During a drive we saw a deer, watched it for a little and then it ran into the woods}
Taylor: AWWWWWWW he was sooooooooo cute. He was just a baby. He was going to find his mommy.
Luke: He found his mommy!
All: YAY!
Taylor: Awww he's happy he found his mommy.
Luke: But he's sad because he can't find his daddy.
Taylor: He found his daddy.
All: YAY!
Luke: He's happy now.

{Luke making up a song in the car}
Luke: The soldiers were not nice to Jesus......he died on the cross......he was sad. But he's ALIVE again! Christ the Lord is risen today........{on and on}
