emma has recently begun singing songs for us. SO cute, especially since she can't say all of the words correctly (or, at all, for that matter - after all, she's not even 2, yet)!
among her favorites are:
"twinkle, twinkle, little star" - ("tinkle, tinkle, yih saurs...")
"the alphabet song" - ("a, b, c, d, e, b, deeeeeeee...")
"the b-i-b-l-e" - ("ab-bee, ab-bee, ab-bee... BIE-BUH!")
and debuted for me tonight, as i was rocking her to sleep:
"Jesus loves me!" - ("dee-sus yuh me, dih-sie-nooooh... foh bie-buh me soooooh!")
...and might i add... WITH sign language!!!
i'm not even kidding!
it was the sweetest little thing since buttercream icing.
i love hearing my sweet baby girl singing songs for Jesus. even though i know that she doesn't understand the fullness of who Christ is, or have a true relationship with Him yet, it still makes my heart cry to hear the name of my Savior in the precious voice of my baby. (of course, those are tears of joy from my crying heart!)
i'll try to get it on video... or at least get her to perform it for you the next time you're around. good luck with that!
but really, i think everyone should get to hear a sweet, innocent, beautiful child singing praises to our King.
i bet it makes His heart cry tears of joy, too...
what do you think? :-)
