Two Weeks? Too Long!

Sorry I've been a lame blogger lately. Life back in the saddle has been at a full gallop lately!

I have thought about blogging, but just haven't downloaded any new pictures. They will come soon! I'm working on a cool video of a special moment during our PA trip. You'll see it soon. I promise!

Until then, I wanted to share a special mama moment. Jenna, Asa, and I were riding in the car yesterday to go pick up Rylee from a friend's. We all love to sing and do it often. All three kiddos sing at random times and it is always interesting to hear what bellows forth!

Lately we've been singing "Mighty to Save" quite a bit.
The lyrics are:
Everyone needs compassion
Love that’s never failing
Let mercy fall on me
Everyone needs forgiveness
The kindness of a Saviour
The hope of nations

He can move the mountains
My God is mighty to save
He is mighty to save
Author of salvation
He rose and conquered the grave
Jesus conquered the grave

So take me as You find me
All my fears and failures
Fill my life again
I give my life to follow
Everything I believe in
Now I surrender

Shine Your light and let the whole world see
We’re singing
For the glory of the risen King

Okay, so the song has some great lyrics. Rylee began asking questions. Questions like "Mama, what does 'author of salvation' mean?" Yeah...answer that to a 4 year old! Makes you understand your own faith, for sure! I love parenting!!!

So, besides Rylee's deep theological inquisitions, the songs bring out some neat 'substitute' lyrics--by all three kids.

Yesterday, Jenna sang the bridge (Shine your light...) as:
Singing Lion
Let the whole world see him



I SOOOOOO wish I had a digital camera that records sound. Mine does video, but no sound. And, our "real" video camera has now gone kaput. Won't rewind. Makes tapes garbled. Stinks.

I shall be looking for a new hybrid digital camera so I can easily capture those adorable toddler moments. You should have heard my precious Jenna! I wish you could see the Lion she was so passionately singing about. If only she knew how that line could actually be used to sing about our Lord!

Oh, the joy that must be the Lord's when He hears precious babes singing His praises!
