My Paige Elizabeth-
Here I sit at the computer after working on my book for a while.
But I can't get this thought off of my mind.
You know that song? The one from the musical for Summer With the Arts...it was called, "I Believe." It went something like this...
I believe, oh I believe in Jesus. I believe He died and he rose again.
Every time you listened to it- you cried, because all you could think of was sitting there watching all of the kids sing it on Sunday night after SWTA. Watching all those kids cry out how they believed in their Savior, and how much they loved Him. Well, I can tell you, it was great. I cried for you.
I've told you how I'm helping in children's choir this year, right? I'm doing it because of you.
The kids are learning this song. It's called "Bring My Praise." You would love it. I can't help but sit there and just listen to the sweet voices of the kids sing to the Lord in praise.
No one else can bring my praise but me. No one else can bring my offerring. You have put a love song deep inside of me...I love you, I need you....
I now know exactly how you feel about "I Believe." It amazes me to listen to the kids just sing, declaring their need for their Sweet Jesus. I love to watch their faces as they sing their hearts out. It makes me smile.
I think of you every. single. time I hear that song. And when they sing it in church- I'm probably gonna cry, and you know I don't typically cry. So that's a big deal.
I'll cry for you. I'll hug them for you. I'll tell them how proud of them you are. I'll tell them that because the Lord put you in my life and you loved me so much, I love them.
I think of you often. I know you wouldn't trade time with Jesus for anything, but selfishly I really, really wish you were here with me.
And I miss you so desperately.
With love and a hug- your Bailey Elizabeth.
