Finding Jesus Christ

We spent the evening at my mother and father in laws home, where we consumed delicious Dutch oven food and had family home evening. In their home they have a picture of Jesus in their dining room along with two statues and one statue in the living room. Now, the one in the living room was in the dining room and our boys noticed that he was now missing. 

They proceeded to ask where he had gone and we went and found him the living room where they were very excited to find Jesus. Grandma then told them there were three more in the dining room and asked if they could find all three. They went searching and found the two statutes but needed help from grandpa to find the third. 

What a joy it was to watch my boys with their grandparents quietly looking at a picture of our Savior, Jesus Christ. 

What a wonderful and gentle reminder of what is truly important in this life. That is finding Christ and developing a relationship with him. One that is strong enough that we are continually striving to be more like our Savoir. Our brother. Our friend. And I don't think anything could make me happier then to know that my boys express an interest and love for Jesus at such a tough and innocent age. 

I pray that their relationship with their Savior will only continue to grow. That they will hold that love close to their hearts. May we all learn from that pure love that children naturally hold and learn that we can once again be as little children.
