OUR BELIEFS ARE NOT EVERYONE'S BELIEFS---BUT OH! THE FAITH OF A CHILD!!!

SweetCheeks was 3-1/2 years old
when she shared her beliefs
with Papa and me.
She is ELEVEN now.

We were driving her to brunch
after church and asked her
what she had learned
about 
The Easter Story.

It was so touching to me
to see what this
little girl
UNDERSTOOD
about Easter.
And it almost makes
me cry listening to
her earnest explanation.

If you have a moment
it is worth the listen.
Just so you know~
I do think she
might have mixed
a little bit of
Gulliver's Travels
into the the
Jesus story!;>)

She almost started
crying when she
thought Jesus might
have felt pain.
Here it is-
Listen up and see what
YOU think!
If you click on the little square
on the bottom right hand side
it will go full screen.
(I'm sure most of you know that)

Amen, SweetCheeks, Amen!

From me to you-
A Blessed Easter
For those that don't have
time to listen....


For my wonderful, engaging blogging friends
that are not of the 
Christian faith-
I love you all just as dearly 
as I love everyone else.

EVERYONE MATTERS
and I hope you have a 
Wonderful Sunday!!!

What a sweetie, and she certainly understood it just about as well as I did at her age! Better than millions of grown-ups, too, I fear. She has a lot of conviction, too, bless her sweet heart!
What a great Easter video!!

BeachGypsy said...

Stopped in to wish you a happy happy Easter my friend. Hope y'all have a very lovely day filled with love, faith, family, and hopefully some sunshine and delicious FOOD! Going to be almost 80 here, so after church we'll be enjoying the nice warm day.

Connie said...

How sweet that she didn't want Christ to feel pain. Happy Easter.

I'm mostly known as 'MA' said...

What a precious child. We should all be blessed with the faith of a child. I believe in the resurrection and It is the reason for the season. I was reminded of this by some of my grandchildren the other day when their daddy asked them What is the reason for the season...they all replied, Jesus !

camp and cottage living said...

Just precious, Diana! And priceless.
Happy Easter, my friend.

Simply LKJ said...

What a special memory. That is why I loved teaching the little ones, such an innocent faith. I love that just the mention of Jesus being in pain broke her little heart.

Oh, your precious Sweet Cheeks! Happy Easter you you and your family 😘🌷

bill burke said...

So sweet. Happy Easter!

Janice Kay Schaub said...

That was so sweet. We had Tristen this Friday and Saturday. We watched the story of Jesus so we could get him to understand a little of what happened. It is soooooo difficult. He sort of lost interest at the end but we asked him to watch that bit (he got lost in the middle bit). Now he does not live here and does not go to church, but he surprised me knowing a lot of the verses so I know Awana helped him a lot. I have posted on my blog what I believe and I suppose its not altogether conventional in parts..........I do know for sure that He died for us all and I wish He would come back soon. Anyway, God bless sweetcheeks and your family.

That was neat Diana....goes to show that even a 3 1/2 year old can understand what Jesus did for us on the cross. I am sure she can explain it a little bit better now that she is 11 years old. Funny that she mixed in Gullivers Travels.....least she knows GOD IS BIG AND STRONG!!

Lauren @ My Wonderfully Made said...

Oh my gosh - don't ever lose that recording!! That's so precious and funny and sweet! Love the mix of the Bible and Gulliver's Travels -- hysterical!!

AnnMarie aka Vintage Junkie aka NaNa said...

Very sweet! She knew what she knew and she was sure of it!! I love that she said it didn't hurt Jesus because he's strong. Priceless and precious! Happy Easter!

Henny Penny said...

Oh Dianna, this is just precious. Hope you can always keep this recording and enjoy listening to it. They grow up so fast. She is such a sweetie.

Lorrie said...

So sweet. Happy Easter, Diana!

Theresa said...

So sweet "It didn't hurt him because he is really strong"! I know you are happy that you have this video, time flies right by and someday she can show her children:) Thanks for sharing, little kids are listening! Have a blessed day dear friend, HUGS!

Katie Isabella said...

Happy Easter a little later Diana. I found listening to your Sweet Cheeks there to be uplifting and just what I needed to start my day exactly right. XXXX

Pamela M. Steiner said...

That was just precious...reminds me of my own grandson when he was that age...they are so earnest about anything that really touches their hearts...and she was definitely touched in her heart...that was so sweet. Has she seen this video lately? Love it. Thank you for sharing it with us. Makes me want to just hug her.

Ricki Treleaven said...

That is so priceless. I love how adamant she was that he's God and it didn't hurt him! Love it!

kitty@ Kitty's Kozy Kitchen said...

LOh my goodness Diana, thank you for sharing out of the mouth of babes (Sweet Cheeks) version of what happened to Jesus on the cross. I'm so glad that you captured that on video for all of us to enjoy.
p.s. I didn't know about clicking on the little square on the bottom right, so thank you!

kitty@ Kitty's Kozy Kitchen said...

It was supposed to say...Ooh my goodness!

Debbie said...

Nonnie said...

So much for a child to comprehend! Thanks for sharing. I love hearing the sweet kids tell the things they learn or think about God. Very sweet.

Melanie said...

What a sweet child. You could see she was very upset about the thought of Jesus being in pain when he was crucified. Hope you and your family had a happy Easter!
