Conversations about love...

Emma entered the kitchen singing at the top of her lungs a song that is far from a family favourite but which has become a top ten hit with Emma. Plus there are only a few lines that she has mastered:

"Last year I gave you my heart, but the very next day you gave it away! This year, to save me from tears, I'll give it to someone special, special!"

This refrain is typically repeated over and over, but this time she stopped and announced to all of us in the kitchen:

"I bet I know who that special person is! JESUS! Jesus is waiting at the door of my heart, and next Christmas I'm going to open it up and let him in! I will give Him my heart. Jesus can't come in unless you open the door and I will open it for Him!"

At which point Elsa had entered the kitchen and catching something of the idea that people were giving their hearts away announced:

"Well, I don't want to give my heart away to anyone. "

I asked her "But will you share your heart with Jesus?"

"Oh yes, I will!"

... and you can't ask for more than that can you? Sharing and giving your heart to Jesus because you know He is waiting to be invited in!
