Yesterday, September 9, 2013, seemed as if it was going to be a normal day in our new life of four littles. Little Peanut was rambucksious and curious, the boys were all that-boys. We had our fun before lunch, ate, and put the boys down for nap. Little Peanut and I had our first day of homeschool-preschool this morning. (Yes, you are welcome to pray we stick with it since we have a house full of babies :) Yikes!! But we love every minute of it!!!) Then it happened!!! I was reading Little Peanut a story about "Who created the World," and out of the blue she asked, "Mom, do those kids (pointing to the pictures) have Jesus in their hearts?" The next moments were priceless. SuperDaddy and I have been sharing the gospel with Little peanut for at least a year now. We have talked about accepting Jesus into your heart. Little peanut just hasn't been ready. She could repeat the gospel in its entirety, however, she would say "I want to keep my dirty heart and be selfish."Yes in her own words, "No mommy, I'll do it tomorrow because I want to be selfish and have a dirty heart." As hard as it was for almost a year, SuperDaddy and I said "ok, we will continue to pray for you sweetie," and left it at that. But Yesterday, she was finally ready for her new clean heart!! After she asked about the kids in the pictures, she bowed her head and said the sweetest prayer I've ever heard, asking the Lord to forgive her and give her a clean heart! She went through the whole prayer by herself then looked up at me and said, "Mommy, I have Jesus in my heart forever and he gave me a clean heart, I will be more kind and obedient now." And she has! You can really see a difference in her little life. It still amazes me how God works. Thank you Lord for the greatest birthday gift a mother could ask for!!!
