The Rotation

I just finished putting the girls to bed and thought it noteworthy that each one of them asked for the same three songs, in the same order, when it was their turn to rock. On tonight's rotation was: "God Our Faver" or Father, Go Tell It On the Mountain, and Amazin' Grace.

I ended up singing these songs way more than just 4 times each, but I never get tired of hearing the girls make these requests!! It is a real blessing to hear them sing along with me to these old favorites.

It's almost time for my group of girlfriends to meet here for our bi-weekly Bible study. Since I was sick we skipped last week, and boy do I hate to miss... I'm looking forward to seeing what is in store for us this week, and hoping that my girls will all be asleep well before anyone arrives!

At least they are off the Christmas songs. Raegan picks Rudolph or Away in a Manger every single night. No matter how many new songs I teach her, it's getting kinda old.

How sweet, Mary Beth. I hadn't thought about the fact that what I'm singing now will one day be requested. :) I'm interested in hearing more about your rocking rotation. Do each of the girls rock to sleep at night? Do they each get a turn at being the first one rocked? I'm still rocking Luke and really don't want to give it up, but was worried about adding another baby to mix.

BTW, Brandy, I'm still singing Christmas songs to Luke, too! He's going to think they're synonymous with lullabies.

How sweet. I hope they were all good and asleep before your Bible study.

Aren't your girls so blessed to have a Momma that teaches them about God's love for them, as evidenced by their choice of songs. Nice work Momma. I think of you often and pray for your whole family, your husband included. May God;s love peace and protection flow continueously over all of you
