Bumpdate and Wisdom from Audrey

Wanted to share my bi-weekly "bumpdate" picture...anatomy scan tomorrow--he or she? 
I have been feeling baby move a lot today and I am treasuring each little thump. It is absolutely the best feeling in the world. Every little movement makes me even more excited for September when I can finally hold this sweet baby. 
I posted the other day that Audrey was riding horses on Friday afternoons. When we went the Friday before last, there was a horse there that was not feeling so well. When we were leaving the stables that day she said "Mommy, we need to pray for that horse because he doesn't feel good". So, for the next week we prayed for that horse every day.

I didn't think much about it this past Friday when we headed back out there. When we walked into the barn, Audrey said "Mommy, I know that horse is better because I prayed for him". I didn't hit me right in that moment, but later when I really thought about the faith she displayed in that statement.

I love the faith of a child. They trust unconditionally--something that we unfortunately lose as the world beats us up along the way. She never even questioned whether that horse would be better--she just had faith that because she had taken it to God that He had listened and made that horse better.

Yes, the horse was feeling much better. Ever since Friday I have thought about this several times. I've thought about how confident she was in God and how much I tend to doubt. I thought about how much she trusted Him and how much I try to lean on myself instead.

I pray for a faith like hers--an innocent and unconditional love and trust in a God that loves us more than I could ever describe--faith like a child.
