I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth. ~ III Jn 1:4
Today was an extra special day. My dear crazy twins - born April 5, 2001 - were baptized. Slater had made a profession of faith over a year ago at our church's annual Camp Meeting in 2009. He had been under conviction for quite a while, but just couldn't quite get peace. Finally, after months of prayer, God saved him! Charis was just recently saved, but in our conversation that day she revealed something that really startled me. She told me that she was waiting to be saved, because she thought she would have a second chance after Jesus came for the rapture of the saints. She and I have had other similar conversations, where she let me know she doubted if the Bible was true, and Jesus really was REAL. This idea of a second chance stemmed from that. She thought if she saw Jesus take us all to heaven, then she would know he was real. This really scared me. WOW... I didn't realize that a nine year old was capable of that type of thought process. Since the spring, Charis has really been on my heart. I have been praying that God would make salvation clear to her - to give her understanding. On September 9th He did just that. She became a beggar... asking God to save her. What a HUGE blessing it was to see the twins baptized TOGETHER! God has been so GOOD to me! How could I ever thank Him for HIS abundant blessings on us... for He not only cares for our needs - but gives us our hearts desires as well! I am now praying that He would use them, not just to live an ordinary life in HIM... but to live extraordinary lives FOR HIM!!
It was my birthday on Friday - this was the BEST birthday present EVER!! :)
