Praying in Spanish

Kaci was praying yesterday. (Who else would come up with this stuff?) She stopped in the middle of her prayer, and said "I think I am going to start saying my prayers in Spanish." I told her to finish her prayer, and after she did I asked her why she wanted to start praying in Spanish.

"Because... there is only 1 God, and like 100 different languages. Just because someone doesn't know English doesn't mean they can't pray, so God has to know every language."

(At this point, I am trying not to laugh. She is so serious about it, and her eyes are bright blue and sparkling.)

"You know what else Mom? I don't know very many words in Spanish. But that's ok, because sometimes I say words in English that I don't know either. Little kids who live in Spanish don't know all their Spanish words, and God still hears their prayers."

Oh what a sweet girl. It is so hard to keep a straight face when the little wheels inside her head are spinning this fast!
