Moses...

Claire and I were reading a book based on the movie: The Prince of Egypt. The book is focused on Moses' older sister, Miriam. How it was her job to take care of her brother. How she promised God to protect him from the Pharoah's decree that all male babies were to be thrown in the Nile River.

We sat and talked for just a second how it was Miriam's job to take care of Moses and comparing how it is also Claire's job to take care of her brother, Matthew. I didn't think she was interested in hearing it, so I let her go. She sat there with the book, singing (because they have the song in there and we sing it together) for a few more minutes and I started to finish vaccuming. I turned it off to hear this:

"Father...thees day...grateful...bessings...brover, Mafew...amen."

Translation: Dear Heavenly Father, Grateful for this day, grateful for blessings, grateful for my brother, Mathew, Amen.

Ummm...wow.
