in the midst of a slower than normal morning pace (because big guy is at science camp), connor and I had quite the conversation. after blessing little guy with breakfast in bed, I started baking brownies for work tonight and washing the breakfast dishes.
little guy wandered out to give me his dishes then wandered back to big guy's room for more ds play. but before reaching the room, he started a conversation.
this is how it went ...
c: mom, are we having an easter program at school?
k: no honey.
c: why not?
k: because easter is more of a Christian holiday and not everyone at school is a Christian.
c: are you, me, spencer, and dad Christians?
k: well, Christian is the name given to people who believe Jesus was the Son of God. that He came to earth to save us from our sin by dying on the cross. He rose from the dead and now lives at the right hand of God. and one day He'll come back for us.
c: I believe that!
k: have you prayed to ask Jesus to come live in your heart?
k: would you like to?
c: yes. what do I say?
k: Jesus I believe you are the Son of God; you died for my sins; please come live in my heart forever.
c: can you pray for me?
k: no, you need to talk to Jesus yourself.
c: okay. Jesus, thank you for dying for me. I hope you'll forgive my sins and come into my heart. in Jesus' name, amen."
wow. pretty heavy, right? I've been walking around in a daze all day. so hard to put into words the emotions running through me. my blog anniversary will forever be a date to remember!
I planned a special celebration and giveaway today, but God had bigger plans! when I return home from work, I'll put together the post I thought I would write today.
