Singing the scriptures
Here are two pictures of Lilly from today. The one of her in her chair makes me laugh - she's all kicked back with her cute pink socks sticking out. In the other she's looking up at big sister while I'm reading aloud for homeschool.
Today's post is for those that have little ones at home or in their life and
want a suggestion to help those children hide the word of the Lord in their hearts. In the past few weeks we've gotten some children's music of scripture set to song. It has amazed me as to how fast my 2 year old son has been memorizing it. He can sing along with a lot of the songs and will walk around singing parts on his own too. (It helps that his vocabulary has just exploded in the past week.)
I play this (non-obnoxious) music several times a day for the children and have found that it even sticks in my brain. (Yay! It's usually hard for me to memorize anything anymore.) I have no idea what Lilly will be capable of mentally, but I do know that God's word will not return empty:
"So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me void, But it shall accomplish what I please, And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it." Isaiah 55:11
If you're interested, here is where we got the music:

From Scripture Memory Fellowship: we have several of the available titles - my son's favorite is "I Am" -
If you know of any other good one's (for children and/or adults) please let me know in the comments section!
