"my God is so big…

so strong and so mighty, there’s nothing my God cannot do, for you!” i overheard wilbur proudly proclaiming yesterday as i was washing dishes. “i know that song”, i thought, “i bet i haven’t heard it in about 30 years.” turns out little 3 year old wilbur sings this song with his Sunday school teacher mrs. z. and guess what, mrs. z was my Sunday school teacher when i was 3! oh what joy!

amelia, a bit bothered by wilbur and i sharing in the joint knowledge of this song quickly proclaimed that her birth mother taught her this song when she was 1. i told her i wasn’t sure if this was true and that if it wasn’t, it was okay that she didn’t know the song and that wilbur and i did. i told her we could teach it to her and then we would all know it together.

after she and josh came home from church last night she told me she made up a new song about Jesus. “my Jesus is big, He’s strong and He’s mighty, there’s nothing my Jesus won’t do, for you.” “see”, she said, “it’s like the song you and wilbur sing, only it says Jesus instead of God.”

how am i so deserving of these little ones?!? and that they already have such an awareness of our Savior. thank you Lord!

recently overheard in the van

amelia: wilbur, when i get big, i am going to drive you to school. and to church. and to speech. (she is in speech and thinks when her brothers turn 5, they’ll go to speech too.)

wilbur: i not want you to drive me.

amelia: well, mommy says i can, when i get bigger.

wilbur: well, if you keep drivin’ me and i not want you to, i going to jump out of the van.

because it makes me laugh

and because i want it documented for future reference, i just have to share another wilbur prayer.

“dear Jesus, thank You for this day. thank You for my nose. thank You for my boogers. thank You for clifford the big red dog. in Jesus name, Amen.”

Happy Easter and One Year

Happy Easter! He is risen!

at the start, He was there, He was there

in the end, He’ll be there, He’ll be there

and after all, our hands have wrought, He forgives

oh the glory of it all, is He came here

for the rescue of us all, that we may live

for the glory of it all, for the glory of it all

all is lost, find Him there, find Him there

after night, dawn is there, dawn is there

after all, falls apart, He repairs, He repairs

oh the glory of it all, is He came here

for the rescue of us all, that we may live

for the glory of it all, oh He is here

for redemption from the fall, that we may live

for the glory of it all, oh the glory of it all

the glory of it all, oh the glory of it all

after night, comes a light, dawn is here, dawn is here

it’s a new day, it’s a new day

everything will change

things will never be the same

we will never be the same

oh the glory of it all, is You came here

for the rescue of us all, that we may live

for the glory of it all, oh You are here

with redemption for us all, that we may live

for the glory of it all, oh the glory of it all

the glory of it all, oh the glory of it all

everything will change

things will never be the same

we will never be the same
