How much?

I have the sweetest story to tell, and since I just started printing my blog (more on that later) I definitely want to write this for the books.  

Yesterday I was starting on dinner and Jacob took a seat on the bar stool.  
He told me he wanted to go back to Florida.  I told him Florida is far away and it costs a lot of money.

He asked how much.  I said well it could be a thousand dollars or more.  He said wow that's a lot, I agreed.

I began to shuck the corn on the cob when I said to him, you know I used to do this when I was a little girl with  my Granny.  I would sit next to her and we would do this together.  
sidenote:  my granny passed away 2.5 months before i had jacob.   i wish my boys could have met her.

Jacob asked who is my Granny.  I said Papaw's momma, you never met her.  
He asked if she lived far away.  I said well, she lives in heaven.  

He asked how much does it cost to go to Heaven?

My eyes immediately filled with tears, and I simply answered, "it's free.  The price has been paid."  

I thank God for using Jacob's innocence to remind me that.. 

John 3:16

King James Version (KJV)
16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Thank you Lord for Jacob, oh how I love him.

I love this...so, so sweet. The innocence of a child can just take my breath away sometimes.

What service are you using to print your blog? I'd love to hear how it turns out! I am planning to do the same at some point. :)
