Hebrews 12:1-2
"...let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us. Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfector of our faith..."

Jesus Loves

I had just tucked him in bed.  He knows that he is suppose to stay in bed. 


"Mommy."  


My baby boy stood in the doorway with bear in hand, dangling by its paw...and my heart melted.


I picked him up, hugged him, took him back to his bed and laid him down again.  This time, I laid on the floor beside him and stroked his hand, then his cheeks and his head and I began to sing in a quiet whisper....


Jesus loves me this I know,
For the Bible tells me so,
and then his little voice joined in singing with me...and my heart melted.
Little ones to Him belong,
They are weak but He is strong.
Then his little hand started patting mine...and my heart melted.
Yes, Jesus loves me
Yes, Jesus loves me
Yes, Jesus loves me
The Bible tells me so.


I placed a kiss on his little cheek and my heart melted.  I was moved with the thought of how much Jesus loves.  How He has called us to love and raise these little boys--once orphaned but now  ours.  I pray that our little boys come to know that Jesus loves them.  I pray that they will choose Jesus and give their lives to the one and only true God.
  
Yes, Jesus loves.
