My Lukey

Anyone who knows my little Luke knows what a gem he is. Always entertaining....always smiling....and ALWAYS good for a laugh.

The big boys were in school yesterday when Luke and I were going to do some shopping. He said, "Mommy, can I have a new name?". So I turned around and looked back at him as he proceeded to say, "I'm really getting tired of Luke". I said, "Really!?"--in my normal sarcastic tone. I responded, "Sure...what were you thinking?" Then he hesitated for a couple seconds so I turned around again. He got a huge grin on his face and said..........."JESUS!". I had to look the other way cause he doesn't like to be laughed at. I was really only laughing because he's so damn cute! So, of course, I agreed that it would be a great name to have and continued calling him by his new name all day (and telling the story every chance I got).

I really don't have a clue what that little mind is thinking. All I know is that he has a HUGE heart for Jesus and how He died for us. He really seems to have some things figured out---and the rest he is constantly questioning. When his daddy mentioned what big shoes he had to fill, I thought I was defending him when I said, "He likes the name---he isn't claiming to be THE Jesus". BUT.......later on he asked me if he would have to die with nails in his hands and feet.

I think I was wrong........I think this is one little boy who is already living his life for Jesus and he really "gets" more than we think. I am in inspired by this five-year-old.......I am a proud mama.

It was a good day..........................
