"Momma, I wanna read you a Bible story. It's called, 'Jesus to the Rescue!'" Fits of giggles erupted from us both, four feet entwined as we tickled and wrestled and finally settled to listen to her story.

She read her story, and soon she came to the page named after the title, where she called out yet again in her little (yet oh, so big!) 3-year-old voice, "Jesus to the reeeescuuuue!!!"

Without missing a beat, she continued on, captivated by her own saga. The one that told of sorrow and trouble, and this superhero, this Jesus, who made everything okay.

And as I sat and listened... it just... HIT me. "Yes, my child! YES!! He IS your superhero, isn't He? Please remember, sweet girl. Never forget. For He is mine as well. Praise Him, He rescued me. And He still does, every day. Oh praise Him!"

"For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins." Colossians 1:13-14
