The Strangers

To my sadness, the last few weeks in our town their have been possible abductions of children. So as I struggled with how to address this with my little ones, I chose to be honest. I shared with them that there are people in our world that want to hurt children, and we all need to be careful who we talk to and always make sure mommy and daddy know where you are and can see you. Trying to walk gently over the issue, they of course had questions. After I thought we were done, Owen said, "You know mommy, we need to pray for these strangers, because they need Jesus. If they knew Him they wouldn't do this." Wow, out of the mouth of babes! Needless~to~say, we all fell to our knees and prayed for all "the strangers" of this world. I challenge you to do the same.
