Tiny Little Baby

My mother gave me some CD's(or DC's depending upon who you are) she had gotten a while back for Clayton. They were full of Bible Songs for kids. If you know my child in the real world, then you know that he absolutely loves music. Any kind, he doesn't seem to care. In fact we were at a Mexican restaurant last night, and he was jamming to the Latin Pop(I guess that's what its called). Munching on tortilla chips, sipping on milk, and dancing to the music. It's a good life.

Anyway, Clayton and I were listening to his CD's on the way to church last night. He was be-bopping in his car seat, and trying to sing along. Most of the songs I know and remembered from childhood, and may or may not still sing them when we're goofing off at the house. Chad frequently asks me if I have a song for everything. And, the answer is unequivocally..........YES!!

One of the songs that played was "He's Got the Whole World in His Hands". Don't you like that one? I like how it makes the omnipotence, omniscience, and omnipresence of God understandable to a 3(or 27) year old. Too cool. We were cruising along and singing to the music when it got to the line that say "He's got the tiny little baby in His hands". I had a little mini meltdown, a happy one though. It just really struck me again how much God loves Johanna already, and she really is "a tiny little baby". Even though she's not healthy or "perfect", she's exactly how God planned her to be, before the foundation of the world.

He's holding her in His hands. Those same hands that put all the stars in the heavens. Those same hands that willingly and joyfully gave His son to this world. And, those same hands that were nailed to a cross for me and for you. Those are big hands, but still the right size to take care of little Miss Jo. I like that.

On a totally unrelated and random note. I'm getting my hair colored tonight. Woot!! I don't color it often because I'm pretty happy with the color that God gave me, but I just want a change for summer. I'm a natural dark auburn. What should I do to it??

He is big enough to place the stars exactly where they need to be, and to hold the oceans in his hand. But yet He holds just me, you, Baby Johanna, Clayton, and all in his hands as if we were the only child He had.

Our God is an Awesome God!!!!

&& Mom said she couldn't see you with a different color other than brown because she seen you with it once.

You should put some blonde in it. Like tiny highlights that would be way cute:)
