My kids love music. It resonates from room to room in our home. Recently J took Gracie and Garrett to a couple of concerts to hear their favorite musicians … Meredith Andrews, Britt Nichole, Mike’s Chair and some others.
They saw the faces of the people that echo through their Ipods on a daily basis. In their world, it’s a big deal.
Voices are powerful. Whether they’re sung, said, whispered or shouted. Whether they come from parents, friendships, strangers or people you’ve just met.
Gracie and Garrett heard Meredith Andrews sing these lyrics:
And this is the new song we sing
To the King of Heaven
This is the new song we bring
After all you’ve given
We stand before you redeemed
As your children,
This is the new song we sing
I hope those words are tattooed on their hearts far longer than an afternoon at a summer concert.
