I Was Just Thinking About Jesus...

I came home from work today to find this picture on my bedside table. I did a little investigating and found out that Mebbie was the artist...

Tonight I had her tell me a little bit about it and she described it for me pointing out all the nails and the crown of thorns and the blood. Lots and lots and lots of blood.

I asked her why He was frowning and she said:

"He was sad and scared... because He didn't want to die."
I don't even know where this came from. I swear - sometimes I feel like Jesus whispers to these kids in their ears throughout the day and just reveals Himself to them.

Come to think of it - it wouldn't surprise me if that's what was happening. I pray that exact prayer every single night: "God - invade their hearts and reveal your spirit to them..."

I hugged Mebbie tight after she explained it all to me and I said, "Why'd ya draw this today girl?"

She looked at me with those huge, innocent, sweet Mebbie eyes and said:
"I dunno daddy - I was just thinking about Jesus."
That's a perfectly good reason Mebbie. Perfectly good.

Never stop listening to His whispers girl... daddy loves ya!
