The Most Precious Gift!!!


Last night was a very special night at our house! Brantley always puts the boys to bed and they say what their favorite/worst part of the day was, how many days till Spring, say their prayers and get their last min. boy talks out of the way. It is a really special time for them. Well last night Brice told Brantley that he wanted to be BAPTIZED so that he could ask Jesus into his heart! We attend a Christian preschool and he has the sweetest teachers ever! They have been talking in class lately about what it means to be saved and to be baptized. Brantley told him that he did not have to be baptized to be saved that he could just pray and ask God to come in to his heart and live! He said that they said the sweetest prayer together and then decided to tell our pastor so that he could be baptized. I know he is young but once he gets his mind on something he doesnt let it go away until it is done! Brantley was sooo proud of him. He could not wait to tell me. So this morning Brice came down and told me and said that he said it one more time once daddy left the room just to make sure Jesus heard him!! And he could not wait to tell his teachers...he even said that 2 of his little friends at school today wanted to ask Jesus into their hearts! Isnt that great?? I am so blessed to be able to send my child to a school where he can publicly confess his love for Jesus and be excited about it!! It has just melted my heart today! Isnt this why we have children anyway? To teach them to love the Lord and want to follow his plan? I pray for my boys daily for this but I know that the real test will come when they get older and can make decisions for their selves! Anyways so just wanted to share that great news with you!!
Hope you are having a Terrific Tuesday!!

Amber,
That is terrific! I know you are so proud and so happy today. And yes, you are lucky that he has such great teachers, but I am sure that you and Brantley helped him make that decision as well. Good job Mommy!

That is an awesome story! I love hearing children's interpretations of God and what a wonderful impact YOU and Brantley (and the teachers, too) are having on your precious children.
Amen and Amen!
