Faith of a child

Tonight when I went upstairs (around 10pm), Reese called me into his room. He was supposed to have been asleep so I was a little annoyed but when he explained why, my heart became very full.
He said he had been praying all night for a new baby and for Heavenly Father to send down an angel to tell him...but no angel has come.
I explained to him that prayers are answered in different ways and maybe the angel is sending a message to his heart.

He then said he doesn't think he has the Holy Ghost anymore.
When I asked why, he said because of the way he treats others.. and started to cry.

At that moment, my heart crumbled for him!

I told him that feeling right there... that's the Holy Ghost telling him how others need to be treated. And as long as he remembers to be kind to others, the Holy Ghost will bring him good peaceful feelings.

A little while later, I went to check on him and he was still waiting for his angel. So I asked him if he wanted to pray again with me and he did. It was short and sweet asking for a baby and this time for an angel in his heart. We then made a promise this week to watch and work with each other to stay happy and positive so we can always feel the Holy Ghost!

My prayer tonight? That Heavenly Father send an angel to my little boys heart.

Shans I have tears in my eyes. What a sweet little boy you have. I am praying that he gets a "yes".

What a sweet little soul you have there. I hope he receives the peace he's looking for. (And that an angel brings you a baby!)

WOEzers I needed that tonight! I haven't read your blog forever and just had an urge to jump online real quick even with the mountain of laundry to fold and a million other things to do. I was very touched by your sweet story! You are an amazing mother!
