Yesterday evening, I took my 3-year-old with me to volunteer at a Nursing Home. I usually go there and sing with the residents at least once a month. The boys are a hit when I take them, especially when Mikhail and Kenyan sing their hit song, Jesus Loves Me This I Know.’
Kenyan chose to go with me rather than stay home and carve pumpkins with mom. He was very well-behaved. During a break between songs, one of the residents called me over and asked quietly if it was possible to get him to do ‘Jesus Loves Me This I Know’. I wasn’t sure he would, as it meant him doing it solo. (He’s the shy one). I pitched the idea to him and was a bit surprised when he immediately agreed.
He then stood up and belted out the cutest rendition of Jesus Loves Me This I Know that I had ever heard. Complete with his childish pronunciations and gestures and his sincere expression. You could have heard a pin drop as everyone, including the nurses, was all transfixed on this little boy, singing to the residents with all his heart. Reader, I wish you could have seen it. A blog just cannot capture that moment. (Won’t stop me from trying though).
Daddy could not have been any more proud. Like I said in the topic, it was a rather touching moment. Makes me remember something in the Bible that says ‘And a little child shall lead them.’
