This morning, as my daughters and I returned to our pew after communion, my eldest daughter whispered in my ear, "I received on the tongue, mom." I don't know what my face looked like, too bad there wasn't a camera! I never thought my example would pay off so quickly!! I was ecstatic and hugged her so happily!!
Then she whispered, "But Sarah didn't." "Oh, well," I said to her, "We'll get her next week." Conversion takes time and it needs to come from the heart deep down. When that happens, it sticks!!
Praise be to God!! I love being a mom!
This also brings to mind that fact that all my life, I have been told that Catholics don't knock on doors and bother people to convert them, we live our lives by example.
Case in point.
