A Fan in the Stands
Today we all went to church. While we were getting ready, my son, age six, made a sign. He drew a cross in the middle and wrote "I Love God" underneath. He showed it to me and I said I thought it was cool. Off we went to church. I thought he would leave the sign at home or in the car but he brought it with him.
Like most Lutherans, we sat in the back row (really it is because that is where there is the most light for me to read). As we got up to sing, I looked down at my son who was next to me. There he was,holding the sign above his head the whole time...like he was at a football game cheering for his team.
He held it up pretty much the whole time until communion and he set it down and tried to sleep the rest of the time.
I do not know if anyone saw it because we sat in the back but it was kind of neat that God had a fan in the stands.
