Exciting news for the Jubilant Household!
Our daughter, The Affectionate One (nearly 6yo), gave her heart to Jesus last Sunday evening. Praise the Lord! What a wonderful Mother's Day present, to know that your child is going to Heaven.
We were in The Calm One's truck and Whirling Dervish (4yo) was asking questions about Heaven. He is scared of the whole Heaven/dying/leaving mommy and daddy thing. Totally understandable, but he was reduced to tears and my heart is broken because of his fears. We are praying that the Lord will see fit to relieve his fears and he'll give his heart to Jesus too. In His timing. After all, he is only four.
At any rate, The Affectionate One announced that she wanted to go to Heaven and be with Jesus. "Right now, please," I think were her exact words. We asked her questions to gauge if she truly understood and explained to her how to pray.
After her prayer, she proclaimed, "Mama! I am so excited!"
We are too, baby. We are too.
