In the Mouth of a Child

My daughter wrote:

Today Madison (my granddaughter) started singing in her highchair while I cleaned the kitchen(like she normally does), only this time I could actually tell what she was singing! I was almost blown off my feet with amazement! By the way - the song was "Arise" - she LOVES that song!
Still can't believe that my 15 month old was singing "arise" as if she were a praise singer. It was an INCREDIBLE moment!

I just want to remind those with small children that when you "train up a child in the way he should go, when he is old, he will not depart from it" (Proverbs 22:6). From the time they are born, sing songs of Jesus to them. It is such a blessing to hear that my little granddaughter is singing a song like "Arise" rather than some Mother Goose rhyme. I'm proud of my daughter. This is a reflection of her dedicated effort to leave a legacy to her child. KUDOS!

Marenda...you've made Mom proud!

Paul Baloche, Don Moen
One thing we ask of you
One thing that we desire
That as we worship you
Lord come and change our lives
Arise, Arise, Arise, Arise,
Arise, take your place be enthroned on our praise
Arise King of Kings Holy God as we sing,
Arise! Arise!
