I got to spend some lovely time today with my great-niece and nephew. They are 18 months and 2.5 years old. They are active, snuggly, talkative, and almost constantly entertaining.
There is something so sweet to hear kids sing, especially songs of faith. Today we learned that Amazing Grace is a favorite of these young ones. They sing it to their baby doll and while they walk around the house. After dinner, we sang it for closing devotions, and I think she was surprised we all knew it.
At the end of devotions, Frankie said, “one more time!” We sang it again, and with wide eyes, she smiled from ear to ear, joining in and at the end saying, “one more time!”We did not sing it a third time, but I was reminded of the importance of singing Amazing Grace one more time and letting the power of the words penetrate my heart.
Listen to it, sing it, ponder it, embrace it…
I was once was lost, but now am found, was blind but now I see!
Blessed be His name!
