Here's an excerpt from Anneliese's blog)
"To go with our practice 
of giving thanks for the food before eating, 
Papa loves getting the little ones 
to fold their hands 
and thank for the food. 
On Saturday he was asking Koen, 
who is barely two now, 
to repeat after him. 
So this is what we listened to . . .

Papa: Dear Jesus . . .
Koen: Dear Jesus.....
Papa: thank you . . .
Koen: you're welcome!" 

I LOVE that prayer! 
 Before we can even think of 
how to start on our long list of 'thank yous', 
before we even have time to truly
'count all our blessings', 
which would take time and eternity, 
before we can even utter over our lips
the words of thanks 
percolating in the depth of our heart,
God, our awesome heavenly Father,
joyfully says, 
"You're welcome!" 
Out of the mouth of babes!
