Yesterday (Saturday) I was finishing up our bulletin for this weekend and wondering what music we would have for the offertory. From my office, I quickly sent a message to Jess asking her if she thought our daughter Ella would be willing to sing her first-ever solo at church. I suggested she ask Ella if she’d sing “Jesus Loves Me”. Almost instantly Jess messaged me back saying that literally moments before my message came across Ella said she was going to ask me if she could sing “Jesus Loves Me” at church the next day! I love how God works these sorts of things out in His timing! On top of the timing-wow, Ella also exclaimed that she wanted to sing the song TO Jesus – another wow-factor for us as her parents.
Fast forward to our offering time this morning at church:
It was a proud moment for Mommy and Daddy (and Jess’ parents, too, who were visiting)…
Ezra, being in the nursery, missed out on Ella’s solo during the service, so when he broke free from the nursery and ran into the sanctuary after service and asked “Ella sing yet?” He was bummed that he missed the song. We quickly asked him if he wanted to sing, too, and after Ella offered to sing with him, we filmed the following after our congregation had gone home and we had the sanctuary to ourselves:
Another proud moment for us all!
