"He's the Boss of My Life!"

Can you tell???? :) ~ It's his first picture as a Christian!!!!!!
He told me, "Mommy, I'm like a butterfly or a bullfrog....I've been born again just like them!"
I Love it! Children are so amazing....they just believe so simply...I wish we could all be like that!

"Christian" Reese being goofy..... no the goofiness doesn't go away even when you become a Christian!;)

Well yesterday was the big day! Before nap Reese really wanted to pray to ask Jesus to be Lord of his life. I talked with him a little bit and then I just felt a giant peace that it was time.
We prayed together and he prayed loud and bold--it was precious....sure wish I could have recorded it! One of my favorite things he said during his prayer was, "Lord I want you to be the boss of my life!" I think that sums it up don't you?:)
He was very excited all day and called everyone he could think of to tell them the big news!
When Abby gave her life to Christ we had a "Jesus in my heart party" and Reese can't wait to have his!
I can't even tell you how excited Greg and I are about both Abby and Reese becoming Christians. We have been praying for them since BEFORE they were born and it's the most important decision they will ever make! We feel very blessed that we got to lead them in that prayer and be part of their spiritual growth!
How amazing for them to have a testimony that they were raised in a home that taught about Christ and for as long as they can remember they have been a child of God! What else could you ask for!? Praise God for that!
Now we're all 4 ready--I can't wait to see what God has in store for our family!!!!
