My 5 year old and I are in the car heading home…
I glance back and notice Jazlynn has her feet extended up against the back of the passenger seat and not sitting upright in her booster seat.
I say, “Jazlynn, please sit up right because your seatbelt would not protect you in case of a car accident.”
She responds, “Mom… do you remember when grandma and I were jumping waves at the beach and one made me flip over, but grandma was not flipped over?”
Wondering where she’s going with this I respond, “Yes…”
She says, “Well that’s because God was holding her in his arms, and so I KNOW if we got in an accident God would make sure to hold me and I will still be alive.”
I smile in the rear view mirror and say, “Praise God for your faith in Him, but just sit up right just in case.”
