His Choice...

My thirteen year old son, Hayden made a choice today. 

He made the choice to accept Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior. 

He made the choice all on his fact, a few weeks ago he approached Mark (hottie husband, and Hayden's step-dad) to let Mark know of the choice he had made. 

I have to say that I am a very proud mother! 

At the end of each sermon at our church, Pastor Mark invites anyone who has made the decision to accept Christ into their hearts to come forward and profess their decision.  This morning, as the congregation stood in prayer and song, Hayden looked over at Mark and me (he sits with the teens during church) and motioned that he was going forward.  I walked up front with Hayden.  He shared with Pastor Mark his decision and we prayed together.  It took everything in me to not do the ugly cry, you know the one...uncontrollable emotions.  I am SO proud of my first born baby boy.  He, who at the age of thirteen has figured out on his own that he needs the love of Jesus to carry on.  He, who at the age of thirteen understands that Jesus died on the Cross for him.  Hayden understands what it is to be forgiven, to receive mercy and grace, and to be filled with the Holy Spirit.
