Before Jonah was ever born, I would pray for the his birth and for significant milestones in his life. Even now, I continue to pray for those things. (well, not his birth because that is done!) So many of those things seem so far in the future but I pray for them consistently. (ie, his future mate, his college/career choice, his character & integrity, etc) One of the things I pray for is the day that he recognizes his need for a savior and in turn asks Jesus into his heart. Obviously, that is something that is still years away but even now, we do our part as his parents to lay the foundation he needs in order to make that decision a very easy one for him. Tonight was a benchmark moment in my life as a parent. It was so precious for me to see my little 19 month old boy to clasp his hands to say his nighttime prayer. AAAUGH...could life get ANY better than this????
