This and That...

   One of the prayers at the top of my list is that my children get saved young and grow to serve God all their lives.  It seems that God is working on Christian's little three year old heart.  He's been asking lots of questions about God, Heaven and Hell, Jesus dying on the cross, salvation, and where people go when they die, etc, and then thinks about it for awhile after we answer those questions.  Many times, he'll stop and ask us a question right in the middle of some activity or childish game he's playing.  Yesterday, I was rocking Wesley in the living room while Christian and Audra played.  Christian climbed into the back of his big dump truck and sat on his knees, bowed his head and prayed, "Lord, please save me and Audra."  Then he looked up at me and asked, "Does it take a long time for God to save you after you pray?"  I wanted to cry!  Such a sweet, innocent question, but one that was so sincere.  I don't think he fully understands just yet, but he's close.  God is working on his little heart and I long for the day when the "lights" of understanding come on and he accepts Christ into his heart.  He's only three and we are not pushing him into a prayer, but at the same time, we are answering his questions and encouraging him in that direction.  He asks almost every night for the "story about Jesus dying on the cross" at bedtime.  It won't be long!
