1. My two girls who gave their hearts to Jesus last night. Yes–Lulu, age 6, and Louise, age 4.5, became Christians last night. It happened just after we finished our Bible story before bed. The conversation prior to their conversions went something like this:
Lulu: “I’ve done half of it before.”
Me: “Half of what, baby?” (I still call her baby.)
Lulu: “Asking Jesus into my heart. I’ve prayed, but I haven’t finished reading the Jesus Storybook Bible.”
Me: “Oh, you don’t have to read anything to ask Jesus into your heart! You can do it now.”
Lulu: “You can pray more than one time, right?”
Me: “Yes, but you don’t have to. When you ask Jesus to come into your heart, He does.”
I sent Lulu to get her daddy–I didn’t want him to miss this beautiful moment. He led Lulu in prayer, and I led Louise in prayer. It was beautiful. I am so thankful to God that my girls have begun listening to the promptings of the Holy Spirit at such a young age!
I realize that anything that follows #1 will be a let down, but here goes: the movie Mr. Smith Goes to Washington. I just finished watching, after attempting to watch it (i.e. bringing it home from the library, only to return it unwatched) countless times. I love Jimmy Stewart, and this is just the perfect movie to watch just before Independence Day.
3. A wonderful husband who encourages me to do things just for me. Tonight I scrapbooked while watching Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, and Steady Eddie took care of the DLM. 🙂
4. Lots of fresh vegetables, thanks to Steady Eddie visiting various farmer’s markets across the state during his work travels this week.
5. An opportunity to meet a new favorite author of mine tomorrow!
