The wonders of words

"Popo, E-R", Elijah said. My sister rushed in to take her son to the Bathroom, he needs to go. After a few minutes, he then said again, "Popo, E-R". That meant "Popo, CR". So my sister took him to the Bathroom again. My sister noticed that his son is leaving the bathroom even if he is not finished doing it.

So she told him, "Pag ikaw nagsabi pa na popo-po ka naman, papaluin na kita."

After a few minutes she heard her son said, "Mama, Pa-Pa A-AR", "What?", my sister asked. "Pi-Pi E-R" louder this time. That was when she realized that her son is agan trying to tell her that he wants to go again, but can't since he was afraid to be spanked.

Wonderful Prayer from a child

“Mommy, let’s all pray na.” It was my 4-year old son, Seandy. He tried to interrupt the conversation between me and his dad. I guess, it’s our cue to sleep.

We huddled around, holding each other’s hands and closed our eyes. My son then said, “Lord.” Then he stopped and said, “You do it, mom.” I smiled and urged him to do it this time.

He continued, “Lord, thank you po sa araw na ito. Ingat Mo po kami sa mga lakbayin namin. Thank you din po sa mga food namin. Sana po bigyan mo po kami ng money para maka-buuy po kami ng kung anu ano. At ingat Nyo po kami sa pag-sleep naming. Amen.” Then, followed it up with, “I love you so much, Jesus!”
I and my husband repeated each word as he said it. After the prayer, Seandy leaned to each of us to say his goodnight and to kiss us.

As I watched him sleep, I uttered my own prayer. I am just thankful to see my kids grow more each day. And even more thankful that knowing that at an early age God has already touched his heart.
