Do you hear them?


The angels singing? They are! A little guy, just four years old was watching Diego this morning. His mommy quickly getting ready for an appointment that his sister had. He out of the blue said "do you know Grandma's phone number? i want to talk to her about Heaven" Mommy called Grandma, they had a little talk, he said "i love you and goodbye". As he was sitting there his mommy and him talked a little more about Heaven and about how we get there and that when he was ready he could ask Jesus into his heart. His mommy, not wanting to push anything too young said that we could do it now or later when he got a little bigger. He wanted to do it "right now"!

The clock was ticking and being late to an appointment was a possiblility but at that particular moment, time stood still...none of that mattered...it didn't matter that mommy was in a towel, a little boy wanted to ask Jesus into his heart! Mommy and boy kneeled by the bed, mommy having a lump in her throat and tears in her eyes the little boy repeated mommy's words asking Jesus to come into his heart and save him so that he can go to Heaven one day.

As they ended the prayer, mommy asked him where he was going to go some day (we don't mention die, cause that word is too upsetting to him) and he put both hands in the air like he just scored a goal and said "Heaven, YES!"

Will he remember this day? I hope so. Is it possible that he won't and will later make sure of his salvation? Certainly possible. Which was the case with his two older sibling who also prayed the prayer at the age of 4 and made sure of their salvation last year. Is it fantastic that he wanted to do it? Absolutely!! Are his mommy and daddy proud of him? You bet!!

So let the angels sing... a little 4 year old has Jesus in his heart!!

Romans 10:13 For whoever calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
