A New Song
Several days ago Tiffani overheard our son David (4) singing a song by himself. As she got closer she didn't recognize the song. He was composing both lyrics and melody on the spot. She ran to grab a piece of paper to capture it. I wanted to share it here as a blessing.

When you don't obey God
He will get you in trouble
He is the Holy Father, Holy Spirit, Lord!
He is God Almighty.
He lives in your heart all day.

Yes I will obey God
He has made us
To the Lord our God
He loves us so much every day
I will obey God every day

Holy! Holy! Holy!
God is sooooo strong!

Some pretty good theology there-- any thoughts? It's obvious we work on obedience a lot around the house-- at least you can hear it in the song. Remniscient of Mary's song-- "Let it be with me according to your word." I am still trying to learn to sing that one with my heart.

Out of the mouths of babes, right? These are beautiful moments. Thanks for the window into David's world--a pure place of honesty and light. If only we could all sing this song--and mean it. God, teach us the tune of David's Magnificat.

Hmmm... David is a songwriter... just like his Daddy... just like his Eternal Father...

Just a reminder though, David's creative gift is a holy thing. Remove your shoes and tread softly.

Michel has a great point here. The creativity of a child is a beautiful thing. How can we best call out and bless this creativity in David--and in every other child?
