Glorious Growth

14 May

She’s had Sunday school after Sunday school, learning about God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit and our church. She’s earned Disciple Dollar after Disciple Dollar for all the school work she’s turned in and questions answered in class. She asks questions to us. Wants to learn more. Says her prayers. Follows along to the readings in church. Sings songs of praise – in church and when at home.

Nia was prepared and excited for today. Her First Holy Communion. She felt so special getting to receive the body and blood of Jesus. She told me the blessed wine shocked her a bit because she got a bigger sip than she meant to. But that, “She tried really hard not to make a face.” I think the Sacrament is already showing her about growing closer to God. Tonight, she added more to her nightly prayer, asking God to please keep her family safe. For a little girl who usually only says, “Now I lay me down to sleep…” this is a wonderful thing.

Our little Bean – growing up in mind, beauty, spirit and faith.
