On Eagles' Wings

I read to Qavah last night before bed and she reached up to touch my face. I looked down at her and she looked up at me earnestly and said, "I want to get on the back of a big bird and fly to heaven Mama." I asked her what she would do there and she said, "I would sit on Jesus' lap and talk to Him and make Him laugh. Then I would get back on my bird and fly home." I wrote down the words of our conversation to pull them out later when I am teaching her the words, "You yourselves have seen what I did to Egypt, and how I carried you on eagles' wings and brought you to myself. " Exodus 19:4. I love the way children think about things.
