Where Is God?

So we thought Matthew how to pray. Sometimes we have to ask him millions of times to pray before bed, and sometimes he just does it.

His daily evening prayer consists of sign of the cross at the beginning. Then he blesses everyone and himself. In the prayer itself he thanks God for everything, including 'nice good day', 'good food', 'breakfast, lunch and dinner', 'thank you for going zoo', 'thank you for playing with friends', 'thank you for ice cream', 'thank you for mom and dad', and anything else that happened to him during the day. He concludes with sign of the cross, blesses everyone again and himself.

All that accompanied by heavy jumping around the bed on his knees, and when finished he drops his body on the pillow. So once I dropped with him.

- 'Matthew that was a very nice prayers' - I praised him.
- 'Matthew do you know where is God?' - I asked him.
- 'On the shelf' - Matthew replied and pointed towards his dresser.

Theoretically he is very correct. We never got to hang the cross on the wall.


  1. That's so cute!

    I once had a bronze crucifix hanging in my room during a time when my ancestors were pretending to be Catholic. I remember being quite creeped out by it, because it had the tortured figure of Christ on it, instead of just being a bare cross. (Shudder)

  2. Hi Anna :D!

    I love hearing children praying: they are the cutest things. They also remind us that a prayer doesn't have to be complicated or elaborated; a prayer is a simple conversation with our Father above, and a request for His blessings.

    Matthew has showed us that life is good and we must be grateful for it, no matter what :).

    I thought perhaps, your baby boy wanted to say that God is "on the self"...which is profoundly true :D.

    Cheers and a big hug, girl!

  3. What a nice way to end the day.

    cheers, parsnip
