Jelani's New Bible

Tonight I gave Jelani his new Bible at church after service! He got one that's like his mom's on the inside, but smaller and with a manly cover and not a purple one! lol I told him to close his eyes and hold out his hand, and when he opened his eyes it went something like this:
 
"A BIBLE!!! A NEW BIBLE!!!"
 "I GOT A NEW BIBLE!!!!"
 "THANKS JEN!!!!"
 And he proceeded to go around and show practically the whole church his new Bible.
 ....and then continued flipping through the pages the rest of the time he was at church.
Jelani and I with our swords! :)

I've never seen a little kid SO excited about getting a new Bible. It was the cutest thing ever and touched my heart that a child was so happy to get a Bible. I can already see God's hand on this little boy and I pray he will grow up to be something great for God.

Thanks for reading!

LOL! He never said anything to me about hot wheels! Guess he's desiring spiritual things. lol But I'm sure he liked it. ;) Keep being a good example.
