The Joy of My Heart

"Mommy...how do I become a Christian?"

Her little voice asked as she slowly walked inside the kitchen after carefully setting the table.

I stopped.

Years of teaching.

Endless days of silent prayer.

God gripped my heart.

This is what it is all about.

I put my arm around her.

We talk, I pray over her. We embrace.

She is only seven.

And today she has eternal life with her heavenly Father.

Tears well up in my eyes.

Thank you, Father.

For my little Joy Noelle.

"Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these."
Matthew 19:14

PTL! I've had the pleasure of leading four of my children to Christ. All of them just happened to be three years old when they asked me. Jesus said it was never too young. From this point on, I build on that foundation!

This is just too precious. Tell my new Sister in Christ, congrats!
