A couple of weeks ago, Camryn was in the worship service when our pastor baptized two children. When we got home I was making lunch, and Camryn was in the kitchen with me playing. Out of nowhere, she said, "Mama, Peach-a (preacher) Steve in water." I was so surprised that she had even paid attention to that or remembered it! I sat down with her and explained that yes, Preacher Steve was in the water. He was baptizing two children who gave their hearts to Jesus. And then I told her how proud I was of her for paying attention in church. Did she understand everything I said? Probably not. But, even though she is young, was that a teachable moment? Most definitely! If nothing else, she could tell Mommy was talking to her about something important (because she listened very carefully) and that Mommy was proud of her. I hope I always take advantage of those little moments that I have to teach her something about Jesus and His love!
