It is 12:39 a.m. December 26 and everyone has just gone to bed, except me.
Yesterday we celebrated Christmas at my sister's house. We had fun enjoying one another, some played Old Maid Cards plus a few other games. We had delicious food, plenty of laughs and precious moments.
Christmas was both busy and relaxing. We began the day with homemade waffles, sausage, biscuits and sausage gravy. We enjoyed visiting Grandma and Grandpa B and Aunt Doris over breakfast. It has been a tradition for several years now and we look forward to it each year.
Afternoon was relaxing for the adults in the house. The boys played with their gifts while we took little snoozes on the couch.
This evening we had a little visit from the K family. It was such a surprise and we enjoyed our time together. The kids all played a little wii so there was plenty of fun to be had.
We had a lite dinner - we raided the fridge. The boys were thrilled to have left overs! After dinner we all headed into the family room to watch Left Behind. There were many questions and comments throughout the movie. The movie was good and touched hearts in our home. After the movie, Cody was quiet and we could tell something was bothering him. We asked him if he was o.k. and he asked, "but what if I am not sure?" The other boys remained quiet as we spoke to our eight year old about KNOWING for sure. At 12:06 a.m. on December 26, 2014 and through a quivering bottom lip, our eight year old son Cody asked Jesus to forgive his sins and come into his heart. Praise be to God! As Cody completed his prayer, sobs were coming from our 10 year old. Evan was totally engulfed in tears and sobbing his heart out. It took a few minutes for him to be able to speak to us, but when he did he said he wanted to make sure he too had Jesus in his heart. So within minutes of his younger brother, he reaffirmed his Faith in Jesus Christ as his Savior. This mama had tears streaming down her face as I listened to my husband/their daddy guide our two youngest sons through the sinner's prayer. Glory be to God!
The perfect end to our Christmas Day.
