Last night, we drove down to Barnes and Noble to pick up a couple of books for me to read since I haven't been feeling all that great and have just wanted to curl up in bed with a good book (and snuggled next to one of my boys who have both been feeling under-the-weather). The sunset yesterday was breathtaking with various hues of gold, orange and red permeating the darkening blue sky. Then, David was looking out the window himself and randomly says:
"The sunset makes me feel so close to God. I feel like his arms are wrapped around me and it makes me love Him SO much!"
I was the only one who heard him make this comment and asked Rob (with tears starting to glisten in my eyes and a gladness in my heart) if he heard our almost 6-year-old's comment. He had been listening to talk radio fairly intently, so he had missed it, but David happily recounted what he had just shared and then went on to tell us about other things that made him feel close to God and loved by our Creator.
He has such deep and profound thoughts and has been amazing me with his insight and outlook on life. And, when he speaks these things from his heart or when he is making up his own songs of praise to our Father, I get this mental image of his namesake--King David and feel reassured of the promise we were given when I was pregnant with my firstborn. He's going to be a man after God's own heart.
