A Week of Rejoicing!

I am proud and thrilled to announce that Matthew, our sweet, quirky, hilarious three and a half year old prayed to accept Jesus as his personal Savior on Tuesday afternoon! Matt has been asking question lately about how to go to Heaven and why Jesus died on the cross. This had become an every day occurrence. He has been carrying his Bible story book around the house for several weeks now and always opens it to the story of Jesus' Crucifixion. I quizzed him and even at his tender age, he easily answered the questions and seemed to understand what I was asking!

On Tuesday, after we discussed it once again, he looked up at me and said, "Mommy, I want to pray and ask Jesus in my heart now." Then he immediately folded his hands, closed his eyes, bowed his head and waited expectantly for me to lead him in the prayer of salvation. So I DID!!!

James and I are so proud of our little man. We are blessed beyond measure to have two small children who have both already accepted Christ. As a Christian parent, there is little that can make you prouder than knowing that.

On a side note, after Matthew finished his prayer, he looked up at me, beaming, and announced, "Mommy, now I can go to heaven!!! And Jordan is waiting for me!!!"
(Jordan is the baby that James and I lost after John. The boys know they have a sibling in heaven and it moved me to tears to realize that Matthew understands that concept and is anxiously awaiting meeting his brother.)
