Speaking of prayer,
Every night I experience a great thing: the voice of my daughter (1.7 years old) echoing through the house calling "Daddy! Daddy!" At bedtime, my wife gets her ready for sleep, and then reads two or three books with her. When they finish the books, Mrs. Athanasius says "Time to pray." Macrina (not her real name) begins calling out for me to come up and join them.
Life is good. I hope she does this when she's sixteen.
