We were driving in the car the other day and Zeke cautiously began this conversation with me from the back seat.
Z: Mom, I need to tell you something, but I need you to promise that you won't be upset.
J: (bracing myself) I don't know Zeke...what are you going to tell me...?
Z: I won't be able to tell you until you promise that you won't be upset.
J: (nervously) ok....I will try to not be upset...go ahead and tell me.
Z: Mom, I have been wanting to tell you that I love Jesus & God more than you....I just didn't want your feelings to be hurt.
