Today will go down as one of the best days ever in the Lathem house. We celebrated three amazing things.
- Elijah’s 6th birthday. Our little man is now 6 years old. We celebrated by Elijah’s choices of ordering a pizza, eating a delicious chocolate cake that Lim made and watching Toy Story 2. His favorite part was, of course, opening his presents.
- Elijah’s Kindergarten Graduation. We also celebrated Elijah’s graduation form Kindergarten. He was presented with a medal and cheers from all the family.
- Zoe and Elijah accepted Jesus today!! This is, obviously, the most important event that occurred today. Yesterday in church they learned the “I am a C, I am a Ch, I am a Christian…” song. I asked them this morning how they knew they were Christians and they weren’t able to answer the question. I began telling them that to be a Christian means a person repents of their sins, surrenders their life to Jesus and makes Him Lord of their life. I then asked them if that was something they would like to do. To my great pleasure they both said, “Yes.” Lim and I sat on the sofa and Zoe climbed up into my lap, while Elijah knelt in front of us. I then led them in a prayer, where they acknowledged their sin and need for a Savior. They then asked Jesus to be the Lord of their lives. As tears rolled down my eyes I said, “Amen.” Today in Heaven angels and a great company of saints are rejoicing.
