Touched by the Spirit

I have to tell you all something that was so cute. It's Easter Eve and we are sitting in our living room and I am telling the story of the crucifixion and resurrection to my kids. I then tell the story from the Book of Mormon. It is so beautiful and when I tell the part where Jesus called the little children to him and the angels came down and surrounded them with fire, it just touched me in a way that made me cry. Sob might be a better word. I can just see it in my mind. I can't picture anything more wonderful.

I looked down at Gabe who is 3 and sitting right next to me. You should have seen his face. He was staring at me with wide eyes full of horror. When I got to the part about the angels and the fire surrounding the children, his lip popped out and huge alligator tears filled his eyes and he started crying. I don't think he was touched by the spirit though. I'm pretty sure is was seeing his mother sob over this story. He must have thought something pretty terrible was happening. I know by the look on his face that he thought I was upset. I couldn't help it, I started laughing.

I hope this doesn't affect his testimony in the future! Every time he hears this story, I hope it doesn't upset him on some level he doesn't even understand!!! I have to laugh though. I was so sweet and so cute. His reaction was priceless and it gave everyone a good laugh. Everyone but Gabe!
