A NEW BIRTH!!!!!!!! :) :) :)

Hi everyone!!!

We have some SUPER AWESOME news to share with y'all!! :) There has been a "new birth" in our household...our heavenly Father has drawn our tenderhearted son Alex to Himself. Alex is now a child of God!! :) We are SO thrilled to have watched and seen along the way how the Father has been working in Alex's life and heart. On a drive one night to Awanas, Alex and I had a long discussion about spiritual things...the heart and thoughts and faith of a child are so humbling to be around! By the time we got near church, he told me that he believed in Jesus and what He did (died on the cross for our sins) and that he wanted to pray. I said, right now? He said, YES, right now! So we pulled over into the hardware store parking lot and we prayed...I cried tears of joy, my heart full and overflowing! We praise the Lord for His faithfulness and mercy and grace in beckoning our son from the kingdom of darkness into the Kingdom of His beloved Son Jesus!!
SO y'all REJOICE with our family and with the angels...for a child has come HOME!!!!!! :) :) :) Thank you so much for your prayers for us...this is an ANSWERED PRAYER!!

I bet anything the tears just kept coming! I know there isn't anything as wonderful in ALL the earth as hearing your own sweet babies voice proclaiming and accepting Christ as their Special Savior!!! We'll be praying for Alex and his new birth and tender growth!
Love and hugs around!

I can't tell you how much of a blessing it was to read this this morning. That's the absolute best news a person could ask for, and I am most certainly rejoicing with y'all! Congratulations on your rebirth, Alex. :) May God continue to bless you.

So excited....angels rejoice!
