So Jovey, my almost 2 year old daughter, learns at frightening speeds all that is around her. A couple of days ago, she stood at the front door of our home and ran excitedly to me saying, "Mommy, I see a yellow school bus!" I asked her to repeat the phrase, as I half believed I heard what I did. Sure enough, she repeated, "Mommy, I see a yellow school bus!" I just replied, "Really?" We had seen an episode of Mr. Rogers 2 days prior in which Trolley was dressed up as a yellow school bus, and thus, she saw the real thing and was ecstatic to make the connection. I continue to stand in awe of the creatures that God creates us to be. How amazing that even at such a young age, things begin to click. I pray that as she learns other things about this world, she will soak all that she can about God and his everlasting, unconditional love for her and others around her.
