"I Want Jesus To Come"

I was reading a bedtime book to Keilei about how God made us special and a page in the book says that Jesus loves us too and want to be your friend and there is a picture of him with a bunch of little kids.
Keilei got all excited and said, "I want Jesus to come here!" I told her, "Maybe someday." That made her SO happy she was bouncing up and down and had the biggest smile on her face and said "To be here with Me and Rush and my family. And you and Daddy and my cousins!"

It made my heart melt!

It strengthens my testimony to hear her say things like that. Logically speaking Jesus is just this picture she has seen in books and at church and home. She has been taught that He loves us. But to her He is real and she believe that He loves her and is so excited to meet Him. I know that wouldn't happen with just any other picture of a person shown to her. Not in the same way.
I know we lived with Him before and we knew Him, the gospel, and the plan. So when we hear thing down here on earth, especially about Heavenly Father and Jesus, it's like it just rings true. Because we already know it we are just learning it again! It happens at any age if we have the right heart and Spirit with us but I think is so much more clear in little kids.It is so special.
