There is something so breathtaking to watch your child sit and listen intently on words of truth flowing through her heart and head. Even at the age of 3 months....and 9 years old. I put this lullaby DVD on for Gracie tonight, and sat her little "punkin" seat down in front of it so she could watch the amazing shapes and pictures. I then left to get some work done. After a few moments, I heard a sweet voice floating from the family room. Peeking in, I saw Abbie sitting beside her little sister, singing these beautiful words:
I have a Maker
He formed my heart
Before even time began
My life was in His hands
He knows my name
He knows my every thought
He sees each tear that falls
and Hears me when I call
What an amazing gift. To see my Abbie teaching her sister how to praise THEIR Lord. Lessons learned:
1. Be Still and Praise My Lord. In the bustle of the day, stop and remember His sweetness.
2. Do not grow weary of well doing for in due season you shall reap! Abbie has been rough lately. Her mouth has not been uttering blessings, but harsh words. To see a fruit of all the hard work that we are putting into her...well...just encouraged me to press on.
3. Do not assume b/c Gracie is an infant, that she does not need to be reminded of the GREATNESS of her Lord. He is HER Lord, every bit as much as mine. I need to be reminding her of that more.
