Actually, there hasn't been a 'meltdown' but in this heat, I don't feel I could adequately name the entry "rundown" because I ain't running no-whar today! It was so hot today that the kiddie pool (pretty big this year by the way!) went from being a refreshing place of fun this morning to a boiling hot tub this afternoon. Henry picked up 3 bags of ice at the gas station to throw in the pool with the kids and it melted, literally, within seconds. It was so unbearable that He-Man cried and said, "hot" when we tried setting him down into the water. It was terrible!
But I'd still take this heat to freezing temps ANY day!
OK - now for the meltdown/rundown of this week's life-changing experience...
Both girls prayed to God to save them by professing their faith in Jesus Christ as their Savior. They prayed for forgiveness of their sins and a belief in Christ's taking on of their sins, His death and resurrection, and a committment to Him to live a life to glorify Him. It was quite awesome!
The best part about it was the peace I had that their prayers were genuine. I love it. I questioned them enough for them to be certain of what they were saying and doing and enough for me to feel sure of their understanding. But I didn't want to make them doubt what they felt led to do.
And a cool encouragement from the Lord this week has been their 'blooming' of their faith and desire to publically profess their salvation. Originally they were nervous to just tell their Daddy. But as the week went on they were more and more willing and even desiring to tell grandparents and church leadership. Tomorrow both girls will "walk the aisle" and make a public profession to the church of their salvation. Henry and I are praying for this to be a time of committment and profession of a true conversion and not just a ritual of church membership. Please pray for this with us.
Thank you Lord for saving my sweet girls and bless us all to continue leading so that the boys can be saved in the very near future as well.
Glory, Hallelujah! I am in awe of your faithfulness!
