When my grandson was five years old, my husband and I took on the responsibility to get Jacob enrolled in Sunday School at the church we attended. He learned the familiar stories of Adam and Eve, Noah’s Ark, Jesus’ birth, and more. His teacher was a model of Christ-like behavior--showing kindness, love and patience to her students. Seeds were being planted in their young hearts.
After several months of attending Sunday School, Jacob’s Kindergarten teacher called me while I was at work. “Thank you for taking him to church school,” she said. Miss Susie explained that there was a noticeable difference in his behavior, especially on Mondays. She credited his Christian education for the change. Jacob had been sharing stories of Jesus’ love with her. I Thank God Miss Susie was a believer and encouraged Jacob to learn more about his Savior.
One hot summer day I was given proof that seeds were sprouting in our grandson’s heart. Jacob was visiting and we were sitting on the porch enjoying ice cream cones. He stood to wave at his grandpa and the next thing I knew he was tumbling down the steps. Thankfully he wasn’t hurt. While brushing the dirt from his knees, he looked me in the eyes and said, “Grandma, you know why I wasn’t hurt?” Not waiting for my reply he continued, “Cause my guardian angel caught me.” How exciting to witness God’s love unfolding in this little boy. I look forward to watching God’s garden bloom in the years to come.
