come you fountain

Oh girls do I have a funny story for you! Today was BSF day (more on it when I've got time, it was amazing though!) and Daniels first day to come with me. I was a bit nervous dropping him off at a new place with new people, but he went right in and did great. He had the BEST time. On the way to the car he talked about the game they played where he got to kick the big blue ball across the room, and then they had a Bible story about how God made Jesus be born, and that they got to sing songs. He L-O-V-E-S to sing. Anything. So this of course was the highlight of his stay at BSF today. So we get in the car and he's singing something under his breath. So I ask him what he's singing. Are you ready for this? He says, "come you fountain". Now me being the good Christian mom that I am I tell him that I don't recognize that song and maybe if he sang it a bit I'd know what song it was. So at the top of his lungs he sings

"COME YOU FOUNTAIN, BE A BLESSING...."

and trailed off. I about died laughing. He was singing "Come Thou Fount"! First I thought it was really cool that he was keeping good time, and then really silly the way he was singing it. Oh girls, he is SO sweet! And so all the way home he kept repeating, "come you fountain, be a blessing..." (it's all he could remember). I think it is so sweet that they are teaching the little ones to sing hymns. I don't know many at all, so I'm struggling with them too. :) But there's just something sweet about hearing a 3 year old sing a hymn. Oh he is so stinkin precious!!!

your comment made me smile as I am old and cool...on 9/27/07 I was praying for you and God brought to my mind this thought for you...Psalm 1:2 that He delights in your meditating on His Word...oh my! our glorious God delights in you thinking about what he is saying over and over and over...I feel ADD when I do that sometimes but our good God is saying way to go to you...AND v. 3 I prayed that you would yield fruit in His season...AND v. 6 and this gives me goose bumps for you---your awesome God knows your way...oohh!

ps - i was just playing around w/ my words by saying i was old and cool and didn't think i would post it---but i hit "enter" and guess what....since i can't erase it...i'll just say you made me feel good that you think i am cool cause i have many teenagers who remind me daily that i am really old...like, just this week, one of them asked if they had electricity when I was in school? HEY...I guess 56 sounds ANCIENT to them and excludes the cool factor...
