a new name....

There's a new name written down in glory and it's Mercy's......

A few weeks ago Mercy invited Jesus into heart. She has been inquiring a long time but you know sometimes it's hard to tell. But like the scripture says the Spirit moves and works in ways we can not see. Jesus says to let the little children come. She followed the Lord in baptism today at our church. She was very very excited and as the Pastor asked her a few questions prior to the service, she answered like it was just "old hat." ......like please, I know that I know!!!!! Hahaha!!!! Childlike faith is so simple. May we all return to just that. I think we adults make life to complicated. So, rejoice with us!!! We are so thankful that God has granted grace and mercy to each of our children. A parents greatest and most desiring prayer.....not for wealth, beauty, success, or fame but just knowing Jesus and living for him all their days! Imy prayer extends beyond MY birth children but that God would grant faith to all those that are yet to come through our children. And like the missionary to China prayed, that faith would be given to them until the appearing of Jesus Christ. (that would cover every grandchild terry and I have even after we are gone) :))))))))))

Praise God for his mercies upon us.....
