Today is the feast day of St Francis of Assisi, plus Kate is going to be baptized in about a month so I thought I might bring up the God question with her. Do these little ones have faith? I think she prays. Check out the picture. She was hoping and praying that I would remember to fix her bottle just right. It's probably pretty simple for her. Lord just help me survive this old man who thinks he can take care of me. For my part I am trying to help her to know trust. She can trust that I will be there for her. And that I won't ever forget her. I think that's the beginning of faith. I do sing to her about Jesus and Mary and she sings along... I think. Anyway, God bless you Kate just for being you.
