Oh the Thinks You Can Think

Yes, 2 posts today!
I was visiting over at Earen's blog Faith in the Journey, where she shared about her son Caleb and the "thinks" God puts in his head.

For days I have been recalling sweet moments from when my children were younger. Sweet "thinks" God has placed in their heads, and conversations we have had because of them.
So if you will indulge me, I am going to rewind from time to time and share these. I will label
Oh the Thinks You Can Think!
(Dr. Suess)

March 2001
Noah (2yrs old) "Mommy I have Jesus in my tummy."

July 25th 2001
Noah (3 yrs old)- Noah was running around the house, when he came to me and said, "Mommy I can hear Jesus in my heart!" I replied, "well, what is he saying?" Noah looks at me puzzled. I said, "is he saying, knock, knock knock, I stand at the door and knock, if anyone hears my voice and opens the door of his life I will come into him." Noah replied, "did he come in?" I said, "did you ask him?" Then Noah lifted his shirt, and shouted "Come in!!!"

May 13th 03
Noah (5 yrs old) In the car on the way home from t-ball. Noah says,
"Mommy turn on our songs" (not kid songs, but Third Day) a few moments later Noah yells,
"Mommy, Mommy!" I turn the music down to hear him. "Mommy Jesus is dancing in my heart."


  1. Sweet sweet post Denise! I love it! I so enjoy seeing God through the eyes of my kids and how they explain it. My little Landon (3) has said that Jesus is in his tummy too - I guess it is the best way they can explain it! Thanks for sharing your special memories!

  2. Oh, how sweet was that! Funny how your son asked about hearing Jesus in his heart too. I'm just so humbled at my children and how they express things...I love this journey. Seeing the Lord through the eyes of a child is wonderful.

  3. Those are great, and aren't you glad you remember them? I love seeing these little ones begin to understand...

  4. I love Dr. Suess! But I am so impressed with how you remember these precious moments. I do not preserve any of these moments---until I started Blogging. Do you keep these in a special journal or something?

  5. These 'thinks' are great!! And it's great that you have kept track of them. We just can never predict what amazing things will come out of the mouths of our babes.

    Thanks for sharing!!

    Your kids are precious.

  6. Hey,
    I just left you a little award at my place if you want to come pick it up! :)
    Happy Wednesday!

  7. My favorite is the Jesus is in my tummy - so perfect!

  8. Ohhh, I love those! So sweet. :)
