Repeat Offender

Wednesday day night I am getting the kids from awana and one of noah's leaders comes up and asks if he has told me the big news!! I said no....with a bewildered look on my face. had my genius son said his whole entire awana book in one night??? This leader was beaming with joy and she was so proud of him. she leaned into me and told me what had transpired.

While being presented the gospel, noah raised his hand and said a prayer to ask Jesus into his heart. I did not know how to break this womans heart.....but i laughed and said "so I have a repeat offender?" She looked at me, crushed that I would not be more joyous! I proceeded to explain that Noah had taken that step a couple of years ago with his Daddy and that immediately afterwards he said "dad, is jesus already in my heart? yes. WOW that was fast!"

When I asked Noah in the car why he had raised his hand, he looked at me with all seriousness and said "I guess I just keep forgetting that I have done it....I have done it so many times now!" I see the years stretched before us with lots of caring, loving women coming to me with the amazing news and each time I will have to crush their dreams....because this little guy is gonna do it over and over and over!!!
