Today we were swimming in the pool and Kennedy started telling me the whole story of Jesus walking on the water. After telling the story she says to me, “Mom, I wish I could walk on water.” This is how our conversation went:
I replied, “Yes, that would be very neat to have been Peter wouldn’t it?”
“Except for when he almost sinks! Mom, I think I have enough faith.”
“That’s great Kennedy. Sometimes we have tough situations we have to go through.”
“Yes, like Daddy being gone for a VERY long time.” She says this all so dramatically.
“Yes, sweetie. It’s tough, but we have to keep our faith and trust Heavenly Father will keep us all safe. Just like Jesus kept Peter safe when he started to sink.”
Then she busts out, “I think I will be Jesus for Halloween this year. Yes, Mom. I want to be Jesus!”
