Well they say sometimes some of the cutest things come out of children’s mouths. Well, I witnessed it first hand as I was visiting with my daughter about good skin care and preventing breakouts, etc. Ok, it may be a little silly considering she is only 7, but we had seen a lady who had many breakouts (I actually believe it was a skin disorder) and my daughter asked, “Mommy what was wrong with her face?” I gasped, but didn’t realize it as she began crying slightly and said, “I am not trying to be mean, I just didn’t know.” It was so sweet to see her compassion shine through.
I explained to her as best I could that I did believe she may have had a problem with her skin, but I was so proud of my daughter for treating her like the other elderly ladies at this event we attended.
I began to explain how I, as a teenager, had problems with breakouts and I pray my kids do not have to experience the same skin issues I had which unfortunately has left blemishes.
I asked, “What have I told you to drink up as much as you can?” and “What have I told you that you can never get enough of?” She lit up, smiled at me and replied, “Jesus!” “You can never get enough Jesus!” I began laughing and she then said, “Well, you pointed up when you asked?” Obviously, she ignored my 1st question.
I replied with, “Actually my answer was WATER!” “You know how I tell you to drink water all the time.” Then we both laughed as I said, “Your brother who looks at the world so literally is definitely rubbing off on you!”
But you know what? I like her answer much better! Drink up lots of Jesus and let HIM cleanse you from the inside out!!!!
