Those who plant in tears will harvest SHOUTS OF JOY. They weep as they plant their seed, but they sing as they return with the HARVEST.

Psalm 126:5-6

The Five Year Old Again

I am trying not to focus on just one child when I post, but it seems like lately the five year old is just so intrigiing.

The other day we were all having our quiet time and the five year old told me she had to go to the bathroom. That's fine with me so I don't know why she asked but she did. Well she had a little detour along the way and ended up sitting at the bottom of the stairs. I knew she was at the bottom of the stairs because I could hear her singing. I let her continue her detour because it was so very cute. While she was sitting at the bottom of the stairs I could hear her singing praise songs and then I could hear her thanking God.

When she was all finished she came back upstairs and laid back down for quiet time.

After quiet time I had to ask her what she was doing on the stairs.

Mom said: "Honey who were you talking to on the stairs?

She said: " I was thanking Jesus for everything he has given us and I was giving it back to him because everything he gives us Mom is really his."

Mom said: " Well that was nice of you."

She Said " I was also singing to him, and telling Him how much I love Him."

At that point all mommy could do was hug her and tell her how much I love her.

I think my mom is right. God is preparing her for something big. Maybe that preacher's wife like Nana says.

My 9 year old daughter is still like that. Her favorite thing to do is sing praise songs. She sits in the corner of our living room where my husband keeps his guitar and worship music for church, takes the music that has lyrics on it, and sings for hours. Her heart is so soft to God. I love it.

This is SO BEAUTIFUL! There's nothing like watching a child love the Lord. The sweet innocence almost takes my breath away...
