The Angels are Rejoicing and so am I...

Yesterday was a big day for Josh... He asked Jesus to live in his heart! It was a great time as we drove to school. I had led him in the prayer once before when he was about 41/2 but he was questioning it. I made sure he knew it was important and something you have to know in your heart is true. We talked about all that it meant and he answered each question with confidence. I know this time he truly understood and got it.

Before he got out of the car I told him the Bible said the angels are rejoicing and having a party for him. He got so excited and said "how long with the party be?" It was such a special moment for us. I will never forget that day!

Thank you Lord for giving me this child and for the special moments we share!

Stacey - this is the best news a parent can ever have! Tell my new brother that I'm glad to have a party on his account!

I used to think that nothing could ever equal the joy of giving birth for we mothers. But I've come to believe there's a sweeter joy ... the sometimes unlauded but amazing new life in Christ birthed in a beloved child!

What a glorious day, and what an amazing thing to have initiated the process, Mom. Bless all of you, and praise God for His incredible goodness.
