Leelah's Decision for Jesus!

Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”
Matthew 19:14

Tonight as we tucked our precious child into bed we read her a little pamphlet that our children's Pastor Bud had given her during her last visit with him. The little book took her down the "Roman Road" and while John and I kept looking at each other as if to telepathically communicate: "But is she ready Lord? Does she get it?" We both saw the creeping smile on her sweet face stretch across those cheeks we adore. The peace and the excitement that seemed to ooze out from her little body gave us the answer we needed: she had decided and she was ready for Jesus to take over her life. She repeated the prayer and then had a celebratory jump on the bed. And we know that Jesus, The Father, the angels, PawPaw, Granny, Grandmother Barbara and my father- her Gigi all were jumping for joy with her in Heaven.
Please pray for her little but mighty walk. We plan on making her Baptism arrangements soon- because she said over and over again "I'm GOING TO SHARE MY STORY AND BE BATHTIZED!!!!"
This is the day we have prayed for! Thank you Jesus!!!
