Jesus Loves Me

We're heading out to therapy in just a little bit, but I wanted to share real quick something that absolutely made my morning!

I have 4 songs that I sing to Ava over and over again. One of them is Jesus Loves Me. We do the signs, to the best of my knowledge, hand over hand. Jesus, if I remember correctly, is touching the inside of your palms, like the nails in His hands.

So this morning during our schooling time, I was reading out of the Bible to the older kids, the story of the disciples asking Jesus who would be the greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven. And I kept saying, "And Jesus said...(this)...And Jesus said...(that)". A lot of Jesus's coming out of my mouth. And I looked up...and Ava was watching me and signing "Jesus", her little fingers touching her little palms with her finger over and over again!!

Just wanted to share. :)

What a sweetheart! We were having a FHE lesson (Family Home Evening) on Jesus Christ and Heavenly Father. When Tyler held up a picture of the, to my surprise, Kristina said "JESUS!" Those are sweet moments. :o) Thanks for sharing!

Could anyone have loved that more than Jesus, Himself!  He made her so perfectly and now she knows her Creator's precious name!  Brings tears....

That is so awesome, you have done a great job with Ava, I love to hear all about her new accomplishments,so amazing and wonderful. I've also been wondering how Moses is doing, I can't imagine what he must have felt like.

That just made MY day!! It is always wonderful to know that our children KNOW Jesus, the most important knowledge we can give to to them.

It brings me to tears to think that she would have probably never known about Jesus had it not been for you guys! The signing is great - but just the fact that she gets to know Him!
