Today is Jude's new birthday

Tonight, while we were doing devotions, Jude asked Jesus to come into his heart.

I know there's a party in heaven, as well as at our house.

From the moment of conception, the most fervently-prayed prayer in my motherly heart for each of my children has been that they would come to know Christ at an early age, and grow up to be godly men.

Thank you, Lord. There is a certain relief, knowing that Jude will no longer be held accountable only by me and Jason--your Spirit will be there to guide, even when we are not. There is no better security than that.
