The Benefits of Living in an Imperfect Family
They were so impressed they had her repeat it. When we don't do the right thing, God forgives and loves us anyway.
The presumption, I presume, is that Juliette is a classic PK, the recipient of a rigorous religious education. And to some extent she is. We read Big Momma and pray together and tonight she watched the "God show" on my iPad (the Tommy Nelson Bible story app). But I can't help but think that the reason this kid knows about forgiveness is that we seek it so often in this family. "I'm sorry" is one of our top ten phrases.
Maybe top five.
Okay, fine, top three.
And I'm okay with that. We are imperfect. But we forgive one another and love one another anyway. And, from the mouth of my child: God forgives us and loves us anyway.
