Good Night & Sweet Dreams

There is a children's hymn that I used to sing as a child at church and for years never sang it. Then my precious little bundle of colicky joy named Colby came along and the words and melody came flooding back. I would rock him and sing this song to him and he would calm down. Still to this day he occasionally asks me to sing it to him when he is having a hard time going to sleep! And it has worked its magic with Brayden too and he regularly asks me to "sing song" for him. =) I love that as their "Momma" I can have that calming affect on them. So here is one verse of the lyrics....

I Am A Child of God

I am a child of God
And he has sent me here
Has given me an earthly home
With parents kind and dear

Lead me Guide me
Walk beside me
Help me find the way

Teach me all that I must do
to live with him someday

There are a few verses but I just love this song and the simple message it conveys. I am regularly fighting tears as I sing to my precious baby boys and thank the Lord. Because my children are truly His children that he has sent here to me.....trusted me to care for them, teach them and guide them so that they can live with him again one day. What an amazing honor this is....my heart swells and I am overwhelmed with gratitude for my Savior's love and grace. What a blessing to be an earthly mother to these two precious lil men. May I always lead them, guide them, walk beside them and help them find their way back to their Heavenly Father!
