Mitchell's New Birthday


My baby. He has grown so much and still sometimes seems so little but sometimes does things that are so big. This morning i was visiting by phone with my sister and the kids came downstairs to tell me something exciting, you could tell by how they were talking over one another. Mitchell says loudly(because that is his only volume) "I prayed to God.". My interest was piqued so i started asking some questions. Me, "what did you pray?"...Mitch says, "please let me be old and bring me to heavens. I prayed God to be my, what it that called Avery(this is where she provides him the word)? My Savior. That's all of it!" How sweet. My mommy's heart is very full. Now Mitchell is not always good at giving full stories so i asked Avery what they were doing and this is what she told me. They were playing Polly's in her room and she said she had a question for him, "did he want to last forever and ever?" Mitchell said "YES" so she led him in prayer. She told him what to say and he repeated the words after her. I explained to him about God living in your heart and always being with you and that He helps you be good and do the right things. He seemed to understand this. Avery told him that all the angels were dancing around heaven and singing and that now they had put Mitchell in their list to go to heaven. I know he is little but i believe he is still able to mean it. So friends and family, rejoice today with us for Mitchell, we are so proud of him. Matthew 19:14, "Jesus said, 'Let the little children come unto me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.' " I love you Mitchie!!!
