Song lyrics often describe exactly what my heart is trying to say when it is overtaken with emotion. Music is the "weeping of my soul" as it proclaims true love....Meaningful music (most exclusively praise and worship music) just makes me joyful.
As I sing to my sweet Gracie Ann quite often, Jesus has inspired me with different songs that are not thought of as your typical lullabies, but bring tears to my eyes as the lyrics are so perfectly describe what my heart is feeling.
Today, this song truly touched me. I was so overwhelmed with gratitude for this special revelation, that I just had to share it.
I have always loved George Strait and have known and loved this song for many years.
But, today I sang it to Gracie Ann as a lullaby....and as a special gift, Jesus revealed to me that this song is not only a beautiful love letter from me to my baby girl, but it is also a beautiful love letter that Jesus wrote to His little girl (me) today......and He sang it in my heart as the sweetest serenade that I have ever heard. He sings this to all of His children as their hearts are quieted enough to hear it
Jesus, thank You for this gift today. I loveYou
