“God is not a belief to which you give your assent. God becomes a reality whom you know intimately, meet everyday, one whose strength becomes your strength, whose love, your love. Live this life of the presence of God long enough and when someone asks you, “Do you believe there is a God?” you may find yourself answering, “No, I do not believe there is a God. I know there is a God.”~Ernest Boyer, Jr.

And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart with all your soul and with all your might.~Deuteronomy 6:5

No Greater Joy

Friday we experienced the joy only christian parents can, after weeks of talking about God, Jesus and sin as I was putting Caleb to bed Friday he said "mom can I ask Jesus into my heart right now?" So I got Daddy and we talked a little more and he prayed, asked God to forgive his sins and take away all the badness.
The Lord your God is with you,

He is mighty to save.

He will take great delight in you,

He will quiet you with his love,

He will rejoice over you with singing.
Zephaniah 3:17
I thank God for my tenderhearted boy and pray he will grow into a God loving, fearing man. Found this verse on my friend Jen's site, God is mighty to save and heaven is rejoicing over a young soul saved!

Wow! So proud of Caleb! You can tell him that I was also 6 years old when I asked Jesus in my heart! He has such a sweet spirit!
Carmen Yoder told me that she gets to see Caleb at the pool quite regularly. So jealous. ;)
