Oh yes! Yesterday there was some serious celebrating going on in Heaven because yesterday my dear, sweet grandson, Caleb, "became part of God's family!" There are moments in your lifetime which stand out in your memory as times you'll never forget . . . well, this moment is one I'll never forget! We were talking about what it takes to get to Heaven (saying Jesus is Lord, admitting you believe God raised Jesus from the dead and asking Him to forgive you) and Caleb, with a huge smile on his face, said he wanted to do them all - and did! We talked about what it means to say Jesus is Lord (it is saying He is the Boss of your life and you will obey Him) and Caleb said he understood and wanted Jesus to be his Boss!
So . . . beyond sharing this amazing news with you all, why am I writing about this? Well, it reminded me how important it is for us as parents and grandparents to be watching for the opportunity to share Jesus with our grandchildren/children.
While there are many things in this life which are important, there is nothing more important to this grandma than to know my children and grandchildren know and walk with Jesus and are part of "God's family"! This grandma has a very happy heart! I'm so thankful my sweet Caleb is part of "God's family now!" I do not think it is possible for the angels in Heaven to celebrate more than this grandma, but regardless, you can be sure there was a lot of celebrating going on at my house - still is! :^)
