"Too many hard words"

Estee, Jude and I drove to an indoor gym the other day when the ice was a couple inches thick on the road. As we buckled in to drive home we jokingly said, "whelp, lets pray we don't crash."

I then asked Jude if he wanted to pray.

"Sure." He says so happily that it makes even a stranger smile.

I then fed him the lines of the Lords Prayer and he repeated them to me.

Our Father in heaven,
Great is your name.
Your Kingdom come,
Your will be done
On Earth,
As it is in heaven.
Give us today,
Our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses
As we forgive those who
Trespass against us.
And lead us not into
but deliver us from evil.
For yours is the Kingdom
The power
The glory forever.

Estee then asked Jude if he could pray that prayer by himself.

Jude replied, "No, too many hard words."

Indeed there are hard words for a 3 year old to say...

But come to think of it these words are hard adults.
