Yesterday was such a special day for our family! Ella was baptized by her daddy! What a neat example of God's love! On November 1st she asked Jesus into her heart in our church parking lot. At the young age of 6 I have seen how God really has changed her life. It has been amazing!
The background story of Ella asking Jesus into her heart...
When she was 3 we were driving in the car and talking about Jesus and asking Him into her heart. I said that when we die we get to go to Heaven. Wrong thing to say. She was convinced that if she asked Jesus into her heart she would die. She was terrified of that. As she has gotten older some of her friends have asked Jesus into their hearts and, amazingly enough, are still alive. :)
So that night at church we were walking to the van and she out of the blue said she was ready to ask Jesus into her heart. I was stunned! So James and I talked to her a little and she was ready so we prayed together right there. It was such an unbelievable feeling! I was more excited then she was I think. Yesterday she was baptized by her daddy. Another sweet moment! She was very excited! There is nothing that compares to knowing your child will spend eternity in Heaven!
