Emma: "When I grow up I'm going to tell people about Jesus."
Me: "You don't have to wait until you grow up to tell people about Jesus. You can tell them right now."
Emma: "Okay. When we get to Palsies (a local sweet shop we were meeting our friends at) I'm going to tell Elizabeth (Emma's best little friend from church)!"
Me: "What are you going to tell her?"
Emma: "That Jesus died on the cross for our sins. And you're my best friend."
A few minutes later...
Emma: "When I get older I'm going to go to China and tell people about Jesus. They're going to have to sit down and listen to me. They better make sure their listening ears are on and they can't talk. After I tell them, then I'll take them to the park."
I LOVE HER!
When we got off the plane and gave our hugs to Mom and Dad we immediately went to the bathroom to change Emma's dirty clothes. I'm convinced she is a food and drink magnet when traveling. Once she came out she wanted to "ride" on the fire truck...she was happy just to sit on it and 'think' she was riding!
We got in Mom and Dad's car and drove about 3 - 3 1/2 hours to their town of Imatra. Emma played with her Leapster and read books...I think I slept the whole way. Best sleep I'd had the whole trip! :) Emma's dramatic reading of Barney.
