Tiny Truth's Thursday......First love......





Jesse is truly coming into his own. He is starting to get a voice and boy is he using it. He is making sentences...using "big" words...and really leaving the baby stage and heading into full toddler-hood!

Over Thanksgiving we took Jesse to a new place. A place I knew that he would love and somewhere that forever has changed him. We took him to the Air Force Museum in Warner Robins. Jesse had seen airplanes....but seeing real life airplanes...in the flesh(ok metal) sitting in front of him airplanes was enough to make this little boy giddy. He walked around that huge museum pointing and shouting "AIRPANE" every time he saw a new one....and just so you know there has got to be over a thousand there! Every time he saw one it was like it was the first time..."AIRPANE" pointing with his fat little finger.....two feet later "AIRPANE"! He just couldn't get over the excitement.

Here we are three months later and he still hasn't gotten over it. He makes his goldfish crackers airplanes....he plays with his little people airplane....he points them out in the sky(everyone of them)! It's truly his first love right now and I just think it is so cute! I love that my little boy has a passion for something...even though it is airplanes, it shows me that he can be serious about one thing!

All of that great story to say this....as a Christian, we should never get over what Christ did for us. We should never loose that excitement..that passion...that joy, that comes when Jesus changes us. I know that we use the excuse that life sometimes gets in the way ....but Jesus is still Jesus and that doesn't change...nope.. not one bit.

Jesse was introduced to airplanes 3 months ago and hasn't gotten over it......it's his first love now. I was introduced to Christ 15 years ago and I still haven't gotten over it....but I sometimes lack that zeal...that excitement...that passion that I first had and that makes me sad. I should look at life around me..my circumstances(good and bad)..the people around me, and instead of saying..."airpane", I should be saying "thank you Lord"...."yes Lord"...."Praise the Lord"...."I trust you Lord", because if we think about it folks....He is all around us...just like those airplanes were all around Jesse!

I pray that I would never loose my excitement over what he did for me!

Tiny Truth's for this Thursday~

-That Jesse is growing up way too fast
