"Sometimes while I'm talking to God, He'll show me something about myself in such a way that I have to laugh at my own humanity and how funny I must look to Him." - Donna

Fun Moment: I Know Jesus Loves Me

On an Easter Sunday, to introduce my husband's sermon, I sang the song “Redeemer” written by Nicole C. Mullins. One of the lines in the chorus says, “I know my redeemer lives.” Then my husband preached an Easter sermon titled “I Know He Lives.” During his sermon, he spoke of the tremendous love of Christ.

So after church when a little girl about seven came running up to Don exclaiming, “I know Jesus loves me!” he thought she must have been paying attention to the sermon.

“I know, Honey! Jesus loves you.”

She grinned even wider, followed him a few more steps and said, “Pastor, I know Jesus loves me.”

Don turned around, patted her on the head and said, “Praise the Lord. He does!”

Finally, the little girl sighed in exasperation and said, “I KNOW 'Jesus Loves Me.' Don’t you want to hear me sing it?”

Hi Donna,

That little girl must have been so adorable. God bless her.

During Easter Mass at our church, when the priest said "Let us Pray," a toddler yelled out "Yea." He was no older then two. The other parishioners and myself around the little boy tried to hold our composer, but couldn't help smile with quite giggles. It just came out at the right time and I love to hear children, especially very young one, participate at Mass.

My eight year old daughter receives her First Holy Communion next month. She created an alter on top of her Fisher Price vanity table in her room. She collected all of her religous items (Story books, Bible, statues, crosses, etc.) and placed them on display. She called Jesus' table.

What a delightful story Donna. Children have such a lovely way of making us smile don't they.

Marilyn, that's a precious story about the toddler. And the one about your daughter is priceless.

Glenniah, children do have a lovely way. I guess that's why I write silly children's poetry - so I can repay them for the smiles.

I have "I know my Redeemer lives" as the ringtone on my cell phone. I miss lots of calls because I'm singing along instead of picking up. Love the reminder of our wonderful Savior.

That's too funny! I'd probably do that, too!
