Sweet Sweet Redemption

My firstborn took a big step yesterday.  My girl loves God.  She knows that she can't just be good and kind to go to Heaven.  She knows that she needs to seek God's forgiveness, believe in Jesus Christ and receive his unfathomable grace.  She knows Heaven is a gift.  Its a gift from a Father to a child, who is closing her eyes and holding out her hands, waiting for the only thing in life that can bring true satisfaction.  And all she has to do is trust that what is about to be put in her hands is fabulous, and wonderful, and life changing.  All she has to do is open her eyes and receive it.

And she did.  My girl gets it.  She loves God with all her heart and soul and I believe He will do big things in her life.

This was truly one of the greatest moments of my life.  It was completely her idea, her faith, her desire.  Isabella Berniece, I love you with all my heart and soul too.  My prayers have been answered for you.
