Dear Jesus

My two-year-old says prayers before bed at night.

She says,
Dear Jesus.
Thank you Jesus.
I love you Jesus.
Too simple?

I don't think so.

If, someday, you need to talk to Jesus but don't know where to start, try "dear Jesus" and the rest will follow.

If, someday, you find that you're overwhelmed by the days as they relentlessly keep marching on, take a deep breath, slowly exhale and say "thank you Jesus." He can calm a storm.

If, someday, you reflect on all the blessings that you have been given but feel you could have done more along the way, just quiet your thoughts and simply say, "I love you Jesus." He knows the rest.

The simplicity of our relationship with Christ is sometimes covered up by our ability to think things through. Faith like a child? I see it growing in mine. Lord, let it grow in me.
