Reverence is More Than Just Quietly Sitting…It’s never, ever opening your eyes no matter how long the prayer is.
Josh and I weren’t being reverent at all because once Josh happened to open his eyes and notice Alex in front of him, he nudged me. We didn’t close our eyes again during the prayer. We tried to suppress our laughter while snapping these photos. (Yes, we know it is completely against the rules but can you blame us????) It was a looooooong prayer and Alex never opened his eyes.
I must say that Alex is THE sweetest little boy in THE world. Oh, he’s my nephew, by the way. My sister, Angie, has taught her kids well and they are great examples for my kids to follow (okay, okay! and for Josh and myself to follow too).
