I had never seen Sawyer quite so content. He sat playing with his wooden castle from G-ma putting pieces together and placing the little soldier men inside the walls.
Just a few minutes before, Sawyer was hollering, "Daddy!! Let's play music together!" and Jahnabell was crying uncontrollably. Fast forward five minutes and Jahnabell is sound asleep for a nap and Sawyer and I are playing guitars together. It wasn't long before I look up and Sawyer is playing all by himself with the most content look on his face. I was reminded of how incredible it is that God created Sawyer and knew him even before he was thought of by any human on earth. I began reading in Psalm 77 and working on writing a song. Verses 16-20 grabbed my attention. How spectacular it is that the waters, the earth, the skies and the depths respond with trembling to the Lord of all creation!
The waters saw You, O God;
The waters saw You, they were afraid;
The depths also trembled.
The clouds poured out water;
The skies sent out a sound;
Your arrows also flashed about.
The voice of Your thunder was in the whirlwind;
The lightnings lit up the world;
The earth trembled and shook.
Your way was in the sea,
Your path in the great waters,
And Your footsteps were not known.
You led Your people like a flock
By the hand of Moses and Aaron.
Sawyer decided he wanted to dress up as Aaron Ivey for a friends birthday party and he wanted Jahnabell to be "Jaleesa". It was super cute. Aaron and Jaleesa are worship leaders at our church. Sawyer is very observant and somehow decided he wanted to look like someone he knew and admired. I'm ok with that :) What a kid. What a blessing he is. What a blessing they both are!
