I do want to say thank you to everyone who sent me a sweet text, a facebook message, blog comment, email, or prayer on my behalf. I read each and every one and (now that I'm back to technology), I am in the process of responding to all of you. I really wish I could tell you how much all of that meant to me, but there's no way that I could do that. Thank you.
Today on the way home I took a little video of LL singing in the car. She has "school" on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday (I'll post more about this later), and Grammy has been putting a heavy emphasis on Bible time. This means that we have had songs and memory verses coming out of our ears. I love it! Hearing all of this coming out of the sweet mouth of my innocent 2 year old just does good things for my heart.
On the way home today, LL sang "He's Got the Whole World" for about 10 minutes straight. She got stuck (well, on purpose) on one part for about 9 of those 10 minutes. She kept singing "He's got you and me, sister, in His hands!". I really laughed for pretty much the duration of it (because it was so darn cute!), but it also made me think. Here's my little girl - completely innocent and pure- choosing to say over and over that He's got you AND me, sister, in His hands. Sometimes the most simple things can be reassuring, ya know? I needed that reminder, even if it came to me in the form of my child. I'm confident that God will use anyone!
Here's the video I took in the car. (Don't worry - I just hold my phone up and pray that I'm getting her in the frame. I really am concentrating on driving and I don't watch her at all. It makes it kind of like a surprise when I finally do get to see the video - haha.) I know it's kind of long (3 minutes), but I promise it's worth it to watch the whole thing as she says some pretty funny things in between singing.
She has such a STRONG southern accent. It's so funny to me! I know that The Hubs and I have accents (I mean, duh. Everyone does) but ours is not nearly this bad! No one in our immediate family talks like this! Only my child can turn "hands" into a 5 syllable word. ;)
