Kisses for Jesus

Jack is a fan of giving big, slobbery, open-mouthed kisses.  I am frequently woken up in the morning with such kisses, along with a good tug to my hair.

This morning Jack was chewing on Lewis' copy of "For the Strength of Youth."  ("For the Strength of Youth" is a pamphlet produced by our church outlining our standards for teenagers to live happy, clean lives.)  As he was enjoying the tasty pamphlet, I noticed he was continually pressing one page in particular to his face with his mouth wide open, like he was giving it a kiss.  I pulled the booklet away from him (he's generally not allowed to eat paper products) and saw what was on the page he was kissing.

It was a picture of Jesus.

All together now: "Awww!"

I turned the book to other pages to see if he would kiss those too.  He would not.  Then I turned back to the page with Jesus on it and he kissed it again.

Coincidence?  I don't believe in coincidences!  But probably, yeah.

Still, that kid sure knows how to melt my heart.

I don't think it was coincidence...I think he knew:)
