Sweet Words

I have not been doing a very good job posting these days! It seems like I just don't have enough time during the day! I really don't have time to post now, but I wanted to write this down before I forgot it.
Sunday night, Rylie rode home with Ryan in his car. She told him that she likes to sing and dance and put her hands up in the air because she is so happy. He asked her why she was happy and she said, "Because Jesus is giving me a new heart!" She then asked if she could pray, to which Ryan replied in the affirmative. She prayed that Jesus would save her from her sins and clean her heart and give her a new heart!
She has recently learned the word "regeneration" (ask her to say it to you sometime, it's really cute), so we have been discussing that topic a lot lately. She really takes interest in her catechism questions and is always wanting us to read her Bible to her and is constantly singing songs she learns in Sunday School (thank you Natalie and Sarah!). We are so excited by her eagerness to love the Lord!

Ahh! I have tears in my eyes as I type this. Nothing is sweeter than hear about a little one loving God and praying for salvation. Keegan is excited. He just said "Rylie is in our family and she will be in heaven with us." :)

What more could a grandma ask for! As I told you, we need to continually pray that she would walk with God all her life and never stray from him, as well as praying for God to raise up a Godly spouse for her as well.
Thank you Lord that Rylie and Abby both love You.......may their desire for You NEVER wane, but only grow deeper and deeper!!!

That's amazing! I'm really happy for you and Ryan, and for Rylie of course! You're both such loving parents who love God and she sees that.

Love you all and looking foward to seeing you on the 8th.
