Sweet Lil' voice

It's 9:08pm and my daughter is up 38 minutes past her bedtime. She's in bed, but she's hosting her own Songfest 2008. With her favorites like, On top of Ol'Smoky....Itsy Bitsy Spider....Swing Low, Sweet Chariot....and last, but not least....Amazing Grace. Normally I'd firmly tell her to hush and to to sleep, but there was something so sweet about hearing her sing "Amazing Grace" and as she creshendoed into the big ending..... "was blind but now I seeeeeeeeee--(up an octive) eeee" I had to chuckle. But then I thought, does she really know or understand what she's singing about? Amazing Grace. How sweet the sound. That saved a wretch like me. I once was lost but now I'm found. Was blind but now I see. Grace. Unmerited favor. I didn't deserve it. But before He laid the foundations of this world he had it all planned. And I...You, would be a part of that plan, I guess that's what makes it so Amazing. He loves us so much that He gave His one and only Son. Can you name one person that you would give your child's life for? Me neither. But God did. He had a whole list of people. And You and I were on it. Well, it's 9:23pm and Miss Alyssa has sung her little self to sleep.

God is Good!
