Salvation and Popsicles


We (my wife and I) recently shared a salvation moment with one our students. I was struck by the beauty and commonplace of the moment.

At that moment, heaven was opening up; angels were rejoicing. God was watching. An eternal soul was transferred from death to life, from the domain of darkness into marvelous light. Amazing.

At that same moment, as we prayed, my daughter asked in a whisper if I would take the wrapper off her popsicle…a very urgent request indeed. My son cooed upstairs. My dog kept licking my hand and nosing my leg for attention.

And the angels sang Hallelujah…
