On Fire

Drew usually puts Sage and Kolby to bed. The other night, he read them Clifford, The Firehouse Dog. After the story, Sage was asking a lot of questions about fire and why we want to get out of a fire. Drew explained how fires can hurt us and burn our skin.

Then it came time to pray. Drew was praying, Sage was looking around, not seeming to pay attention, then Drew said "God, I pray that we can be more on fire for you." Sage looks at him, says "No!" and bursts into tears, full sobs.

Try explaining an analogy to a three year old.


  1. It's crazy how our kids brains work. Do you ever sing the worship song "Light the Fire in Me"?


Comments make my day and bring a smile to my face, so thanks!
