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 Song

Our youngest daughter is absolutely adorable. For the last three years she has picked a song and that has been her favorite song for the whole year.

Last year the song was "Come Thou Fount." Well she couldn't say the title correctly so when she wanted us to play this song she would say can you play "Come Fine Fountain." Even if she heard just a few measures of this song she knew it was her song and she would get all excited and say,"Mommy it's Come fine Fountain."

The year before that her favorite song was "Victory in Jesus", she sang this all the time over and over. When it was Christmas she would sing "Away in a Manger" and add "Victory in Jesus" right along with it. This is how she sang this mix:

Away in a Manger my Saviour forever

He sought me and bought me

With His redeeming blood

We thought it was very cute and was very true.

Well this year she again has picked a new song. Only now she tells us it is "her song", there is no name just "her song". It is very cute she walks around the house all day humming the tune because she doesn't know all the words yet but I am sure by the end of the year she will be singing every stanza. And the song for this year is "In Christ Alone."
