The Day The Angels Were Singing....

Some of you know that we've had VBS all week. I've been doing the pictures and Wyatt has had his first real class (not just in the nursery). He's in a little 3's & 4's class with his cousin Carson. So Carson & Wyatt have been doing the rotation to some of the activities but they are modified for their age.
Anyway, yesterday, we had alot of driving because we went home to relax for a couple hours. Then, we came back into town for Ryan's double header softball game. I left early enough to run a couple of errands that needed to be done, and to say the least, I was not having a very good trip. I got cut off by a senior citizen, and then pulled over by a police officer for unlawful use of a horn. (apparently that's a moving violation) (But I didn't get a ticket, just a warning) (phew)! Immediately after that, I went to Costco and was patiently waiting for a spot with my blinker on. This older Mercades was circling like a shark, and long story short, ended up stealing my spot. (Isn't stuff like that so maddening?) Oh man, my blood was boiling, but after just being pulled over, I kept myself much more in check than I would normally have. But I did have a few things to say to her, including, "that's a good way to get your car keyed"!!! I didn't stick around, just returned something and picked up my pictures. (5 min maybe) Apparently, my little comment sunk in because by the time I left, her car was gone. (The human nature in me ((evil)) just had to laugh at that) (Right or wrong, it's the truth).

So, the point and wonderful part of this story is that Wyatt was singing a song that they sing in VBS. "Heaven is a wonderful place, filled with glory and grace, I'm gonna see my Savior's face, cuz heaven is a wonderful place....I wanna go there"
All of a sudden, he stopped and said, "I wanna go to heaven". So I told him that he could go to heaven if he asked Jesus to live in his heart and forgive his sins. I just let him mull that over for awhile and he went back to singing. And then he said it again. And I told him again what he needed to do....and I asked if he wanted to do that. He said yes! So, right there in the middle of the Target parking lot, I crouched down and prayed the prayer with him. It was so sweet!! And then I told him that the angels were singing and celebrating up in heaven because of what he'd just done. I was his age when I was saved, and I think it's one of my first memories. We've talked about it in the past, but this was the first time he said he was ready.
We are some pretty proud parents!
And needless to say, it turned my day around in a snap.

So sweet, I love the these ages of pure faith - wish we could bottle it and keep it forever - so much to learn from our little precious children. Yeah for Wyatt, yeah for heaven!!!!
