Just One Moment in the business of today...

Thursday, April 26, 2012
Note from me: You know me I am a planner, I organize, I create lists, I blog once a week and have it automatically upload daily at 12 noon but today I just couldn't wait to share this little story so I am posting at 2pm about something I hadn't planned on posting because it was just too wonderful to wait and auto post later in the week....

Today while making up the aerobed in the basement for Nana and Papa, Solon, Vera and I were listening to our local christian radio station life 107.1.  We love to dance, sing and jam to music and so most of our day is filled with some sort of song...

In between songs occasionally there will be a talking segment related to a Christian topic and today's 1 minute piece was on salvation.  The man doing the piece talked about how Jesus died on the cross for our sin and wanted us to be one with him, creating a new Christ-like person within us.  To be honest, I have heard this so many times and have asked Jesus into my heart, I heard it but didn't really listen (bad I know) but someone WAS listening, a little boy who is just 2 and half was listening...and he said to me at the end of the piece, "Mommy Jesus died for us and our sin". WOW - I got all choked up....as I said "Why yes Solon, Jesus did come to die...remember Easter and how we celebrated Jesus dying on the cross, being buried and raised again for US and our sin..." to which Solon replied "yes mommy"...At that moment I shared salvation with Solon...how Jesus died for him and his sin and that one day when he was ready he could ask for forgiveness for all of it and ask Jesus into his heart.  I told him how happy he would feel being in God's kingdom and at the end he said "because mommy we would all have happy faces"....

Yes buddy we will all have happy faces the day you ask Jesus into your heart...that is my greatest prayer daily is that you know Jesus, love Him, serve Him! 

So in your day to day business of this and that, remember little ears are always listening, learning and yearning for the truth...a great reminder to feed them the good stuff, make sure you are ready when the moment presents itself and praise God for the seeds He plants along the way!

Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul, and with all your strength.  These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts.  Impress them on your children.  Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up
Deuteronomy 6:5-7

  1. So reading this gave me chills... We were watching an Easter Veggie Tales movie, where they were talking about Jesus dying for us. And, like you, I had kind of tuned out... When all of a sudden Bryce pipes up, "Mommy, Jesus died for me." Talk about snapping back to attention!! How amazing are these little boys, and that God uses them to renew our faith!

    1. What an awesome story Jayna and yes God does use our kiddos to teach us ALL the time...:) You just never know when!!

  2. Great stuff. Amazing what those little brains soak up. That's how I got saved at 4. After hearing missionaries share the gospel. What a special little boy and God will use him to do great things!

  3. Thank you for sharing - what an awesome reminder! You are so right, Solon! :)
