As we walk with Him to fulfill our purpose and carry out His plans, we come to know Jesus like never before.

Today My Second Son became my brother!
After taking a family walk tonight (having a very serious conversation with this cute son of mine about Jesus and God and what it would mean if Jesus came back tonight and people(he was including himself as one of these people hadn't asked Jesus in their heart)-asking me would "We all go to Hell mom?" And then saying "I don't want to go to Hell-what do I do and I explained the plan of salvation to him and he says so sweetly-but mom I will always be a sinner-I can't be good and even when I try-and me saying "Brandon-that is the whole reason God sent Jesus to die on the cross for us-none of us is good enough no matter how hard we try." When we got home and he got his pj's on he came and got his dad and I and with tears in those big blue eyes he said I want to pray to ask Jesus in my heart-what a joy! It is and has been one of the most joyous times with each of mine children as they have asked us to pray with them to receive Jesus as their Savior. After a hard week and a hard day and making a decision that I think I will be leaving my job and being fearful of what that will mean for our family and our financial situation and stress about that-this made everything of the day that has caused me to be anxious to melt away-it made me stop and say-"Yes, I trust you God" thank you for this blessing that can compare to no other blessing-thank you for the fact 3 of my 4 (and my prayer is in a few years when our sweet Analeigh is old enough too that she too will make this decision) are now not only my sweet blessings, my wonderful children but my brothers and sisters in Christ-that someday we will all spend eternity together in Heaven. It makes me look at days like today through different lenses-that in the bigger picture nothing that happened today comes close to the joy that the sweet simple prayer of my third blessing God has given me, my sweet Brandon, said tonight that forever changed his life.
My sweet Bran, I love you with all my heart-you are a joy to have as my son. I am so excited about the decision you made tonight. I am so proud of you. I love you.
