The best kind of conversation - by Linz

Elliott: "At preschool there is a science table and it just has all science stuff on it."
Mom: "Cool is that your favorite table"
Elliott: "No, I like snack the table best."
Mom: (laughing) Yeah, but what to like to learn about?"
Elliott: "I like learning about God. I love God"
Mom: (Smiling) "That's great Elliott."
Elliott: I already have Jesus in my heart! Now I will always love Jesus. I will never let go of my love for Jesus. Mom, did you say that prayer?"
Mom: "Yep, when I was just about your age I said that prayer with Grandpa Krueger."
Elliott: "Did you ever let go of your love for Jesus?"
Mom: "Never, I will always love Jesus"
Elliott: "Yeah, me too, forever!"
Mom: (Almost tearing up) "That makes me happy."
Elliott: "Yeah, that makes God happy too!"

It gives us a glimpse into what Christ was talking about when he referred to the faith of a child! Just so unconditional and passionate! What a sweet boy.
