I'm a little late in posting this, but we celebrated Claire's 1 year spiritual birthday on Sunday!
August 9, 2009 is a day I will never forget. Claire grabbed my hand during the Sunday morning invitation and with a trembling hand and shaky voice she said, "Mom, I need to go talk to daddy." We reached daddy in about 5 steps (we sit on the second row) and she told him that she needed to ask Jesus into her heart. Kneeling at the altar, she confessed her sins and asked Jesus to be her Lord (boss) and Savior. We were rejoicing with the angels in heaven! There is just something about knowing that your children are secure in their relationship with the Lord. It has been exciting watching her grow in the Lord this past year and we pray daily that He will use her in a mighty way.
She followed the Lord in baptism about a month later and her daddy had the
privilege of baptizing her just like my daddy baptized me.
It is a sweet memory I will cherish forever.
But Jesus said, "Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such
is the kingdom of heaven." Matthew 19:14
