The very moment I have dreamed about and wondered about....how it would happen....when it would happen....when he would semi grasp the idea....had finally arrived. I was overcome with joy and it felt so surreal. Best day of my life. The cute thing was, even while I was crying he normally would grab my face and say "mommy you sad? You crying?" But, this time was different. He knew is was happy tears. He just gave me a proud look and let me cry my tears of joy.
While I understand that he is only 3 and doesn't comprehend the entirety of Jesus' grace and what He's done for us. I truly believe he meant what he said. And somehow in the tiny little 3 year old heart of his, Jesus is residing ;) Cheesy, I know. But I am one happy mama.
He talks about that night often and tells me word for word what he said and what it meant. The other day I asked him if Jesus was still in his heart, he answered "Yes" then I said, "what's He doin in there?" Without skipping a beat he quickly answered "He's eatin lunch". HA! Yep, he's 3.
All this to say, I am so grateful that God has made it so easy for us to have a relationship with Him. We don't have to be perfect, we don't have to say a special chant, don't have to do a number of good things, we don't have to regret our past....we simply have to let Him in to our lives. He's offering a gift, all we have to do is accept it and open it! Wow, He's a good God.
