Before I Blogged

Before I used my blog to record the things my kids said or did, I used to just type it up in the form of an email and send it to my mom, mother-in-law, and Josh...and sometimes a few close friends. I would also send it to myself, and I have a folder in yahoo where I've saved them.

Today I was looking through some old messages, and I found this one:

Friday, September 28, 2007

Ever had a time in your life when you said, "I wish God could just give me a sign," or "I just want to hear Him loud and clear to know He's here." He can speak through others if we just listen...

I was at playgroup on Wednesday, and it's held at the
First Church of God here in St. James - so some of the toys are "Christian" like Veggie Tales characters and dolls that look like disciples.

One doll was one we would recognize as Jesus.

Caleb found it and showed it to me. I asked him who it was, and he said, "It's Jesus!" Then he sat next to me and put the arms on the doll straight out. He looked at it, then turned the doll towards me and said, "Jesus wants to carry you, Mommy."

No's what he said. I just looked at him for a second and smiled. I gave Caleb a hug and told him thanks.

Isn't God awesome??

I just smiled as I read it. I remember that day. I needed to be reminded that Jesus does want to carry me through my life.

And I wanted to remind you, too!

"The LORD is the one who goes ahead of you; He will be with you. He will not fail you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed." Deuteronomy 31:8
