Jesus in my heart???

Addie, our 3 year old brings this question up almost every day. We'll be taking a walk, eating, coloring, laying down for a nap, etc. She will just start talking about Jesus and asking questions. She tells me, "Jesus died on the cross". She talks about sin and wanting Jesus in her heart. Tonight she told me that she wanted Jesus in her heart and then she wouldn't be lonely:). I'm not sure if a child with 5 siblings even knows what lonely feels like, but she's definitely showing signs of understanding more about Jesus and what He did on the cross. We also talked about Heaven and going to be with Jesus. We finished going through Revelation in Family devotions this month and started back in Genesis. It's wonderful to see the younger ones answering the questions this time around. They won't remember us acting it out the first time, so much of it will be new to them, but there will still be much of it that we've read through in their Bibles and school lessons. Praying that in God's time, Addie(and Samuel) will ask Jesus into their hearts as their personal Lord and Saviour. That's the greatest joy we can have here on earth. Knowing that we get to spend eternity with these amazing blessings.
