God speaks

Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.
Proverbs 22:6 

This morning, in the car to school,
we tried something different.
I am trying to encourage my children to listen and recognise Gods voice to them.
We always pray on our way to school and today
I asked the girls to close their eyes,
ask God to speak to them,
give them some words 
or a picture.

They each had a moment to ask and think..
Then I said,
"What did you see or hear?"
Ellie, my middle daughter had a picture of our neighbours,
they go to the same school as us and have just moved around the corner.
She saw our family and theirs.
Jessie, my eldest saw a bunch of flowers.

Later that day,
this new neighbour turned up at our door,
with a bunch of flowers for me as we had helped them out.
It wasnt until I was unwrapping them to put in a vase that jessie exclaimed,
"Mummy!! Flowers!...from the people Ellie saw in her picture!"

God is good.
Love Him and how he can speak even to the little children.
