Inspirational stories come from the writers heart and soul. God put His "heart" in you. He didn't just create you. He invested Himself in you. You are the inspirational story that emerged from the heart and soul of the Father. Who you are is a person worth knowing well.

Kids say the Cutest Things!

So the other day I was sitting at one of the tables in my classroom with a group of my kids and we where making Fathers Day gifts. Now I know I know Fathers day is not for a while however because we are not in school on Fathers day we have a dad's to lunch day this Thursday and we are making gifts for them. That being said we where sitting at the table coloring our cars (and when I say our I mean me as well) and we where talking about our dads when one of my little boys asked if I had a dad. To which I replied yes I do but he is in heaven. Then one little boy chimed in and said with Jesus right? I said yeah he is. Then we got on a whole conversation about why my dad died and I said because he got really sick and went to be with Jesus. Now I have to say that I have had many of these conversations with kids since my dad has past away and for a couple years I would get tears in my eyes as I talked about it. But this time it was such a week little conversation that it actually made me feel good to talk about him! :) So we continued to talk for a while about it and then out of the blue one of my little girls goes yeah he is in heaven and Jesus is protecting him. How sweet is that! It totally made my day! :)
