Grandma, Where's Jesus?

This afternoon I was talking to my mom on the phone when she told me a little story about a conversation she and my daughter had on their way to meet me. My daughter asked, "Me Maw, I have a question.... Jesus is in my heart so how is it that he's in heaven too?" My mom replied, "Honey, Jesus is everywhere. He can be in your heart, my heart, mommy's heart, and daddy's too... while he's in Heaven watching his angels. Jesus is in all the hearts of those who love him."

She said Emma took a few moments to think of this.... then said... "Well if he's in my heart... he must be really small." (Meaning that she has a small heart....) 

When she told me this story, I must say... I was/am a very happy Mommy. For the past five years, I have been teaching my daughter the best way I know how about Jesus and the right ways. Hearing this story is pretty much telling me that she knows who he is and that means a lot to me.

I hope this made you smile like it made me smile. Have a wonderful night.
