The Angels Were Celebrating Yesterday! (So Was This grandma!)

Oh yes! Yesterday there was some serious celebrating going on in Heaven because yesterday my dear, sweet grandson, Josiah, "became part of God's family!" There are phone calls which you receive in your lifetime which stand out in your memory as calls you'll never forget . . . well, this call from Josiah is one I'll never forget! He said, "Grandma, I'm part of God's family, now!" The words I wanted to hear! The most important words he will ever tell me for sure!

So . . . beyond sharing this amazing news with you all, why am I writing about this? Well, it reminded me how important it is for us as parents and grandparents to be watching for the opportunity to share Jesus with our grandchildren/children. My daughter-in-law was having a conversation with Josiah which led to the opportunity for her to lead her son to Jesus! 

While there are many things in this life which are important, there is nothing more important to this grandma than to know my children and grandchildren know and walk with Jesus and are part of "God's family"! This grandma has a very happy heart! I'm so thankful my sweet Josiah is part of "God's family now!" I do not think it is possible for the angels in Heaven to celebrate more than this grandma, but regardless, you can be sure there was a lot of celebrating going on yesterday! :^)
