Horrible blogger

Confession 1. I love reading all of your blogs.
Confession 2. I really STINK at writing my own!
Confession 3. I am really bad about not getting pictures on here!
We have had some amazing things happen here at our house. I don't have pics uploaded yet so they will have to wait. Just wanted to drop in and share our most favorite news.

Jake accepted Jesus!!!!! My heart cannot be any happier. This has been my prayer for a long time. I am the children's pastor at our church so Jake has basically grown up going to church. He attends Awana ( and is pretty awesome at his verses!) and had really been asking questions since the end of last summer. We wanted him to fully understand what everything meant so we just took our time with his questions. He woke up Friday morning , Feb. 24th, and said that he thought he was ready to ask Jesus in his heart. We talked about it and he decided he wanted to talk to our friends, the Fischers. I called and we headed over there. Ronnie basically asked/talked about all the other things we had discussed and we knew that he fully understood what everything meant!
He was shy about praying and I told him that he should do it when he was ready. Saturday night at 9:30 he asked if we could call Mr. Ronnie! He came right over and we watched as Jake prayed and asked Jesus to be his Savior!
We have some wonderful friends that were our youth pastors. They moved to Tennessee in August so that John could attend seminary. Jake absolutly adores John and Mandie. He couldn't wait to tell John that night. I think it was around 10 when we let Jake call! Jake asked to wait until John could baptize him. Jake was baptized on March the 14th!
We are so blessed to have such wonderful friends in our lives. I am most thankful that Jake understand the love of God. Jake smiled and said "hey Momma, now my name is in the book of life."
