My little 3-year-old Thaddeus often comes for a “‘nuggle” with these words. He can’t say his “v’s” yet. Nor “S’s”. We ‘big people’ would tend to want him to practice his “v’s” and “s’s”, but I honestly wouldn’t want him to change a thing right now. It’s his unique way of expressing his heart to me…for me.
Does our Father in Heaven have similar thoughts about our flawed but sincere expressions of our love for Him? Does He require well-enunciated, dignified words when we address Him as His child?
I think not.
