There's a party in Heaven today for two little girls that asked Jesus to come and live in their hearts. One of the most precious sounds I can hear as a mother is the first cry of my baby. But I believe that a VERY close second would be those words spoken with a little bit of a lisp, "Oh Jesus, won't you come live in my heart?"
It all started with yesterday. My very quiet girls were downstairs...painting the walls with nail polish. This morning, when it was discovered, Clark and I decided the consequence would be no TV for a very long time. Well, long in little girl time anyway. So, today we listened to music. Specifically worship music. Then we got to Carman. Have you ever listened to The Champion? It makes me cry every time.
Abigail listened to the opening strains and said "I don't like it, it's scary."
I told her that it was a good song. It was a song about Jesus having a fight with Satan.
She then said, "Mommy, who's going to win?"
I told her that Jesus wins, and because He wins, we can be with Him in Heaven if we ask Him into our hearts.
Abby thought about it for a second, then said, "OK Mom, let's pray." Annika asked if she could pray too, and now my little girls will get to see Jesus in Heaven someday. What a great day we had today.
