Hugging Jesus

Claire: "Mama, I had a dream about Jesus. Well, kind of a dream."
Me: "Did you think it was real?"
Claire: "Yes"
Me: "Claire, that's wonderful, what happened in the dream?"
Claire: "Jesus gave me a hug."
Me: "That's great, what did Jesus look like?"
Claire: "He just looked like himself!"
She then said something about going up to heaven.
Me: "Did Jesus come in your room or did you go to heaven to hug Jesus?"
Claire: "I went to heaven on a pogo stick!"

It was a sweet reminder that her little mind is already thinking of Jesus. I pray that Jesus is already speaking to her little three-year -old heart preparing her for the day she accepts Him as her Savior. I know He holds her in His arms all the time, but I love thinking that she felt like she physically felt His arms around her (even if it was a dream). And who knows, maybe Jesus really did reach down and hug my precious child while she slept.
