Saint Francis

Jonathan, looking at a book about St. Francis:

I love deer, and they run away from me, and he loves deer, and they don’t run away!”

A few minutes later he sighed and added, “Well, I guess I just have to love them a long time.”

Gabe said, “Jonathan, St. Francis was given a special gift – not all people have that gift from God.”

Jonathan's response?

“But, I was given a special gift too, and deer still run away! Why???

(Yes, he talks in italics. All the time.)

I love these windows into your little fellow's thinking. Keep them coming!
