As Gabe's speech continues to grow, so do his singing skills. There is nothing lovelier than hearing his sweet voice come from the other room or the back seat singing praise music. I'll admit, I love hearing him sing along to Creedance Coolwater Revival but not nearly as much as when he's singing along to Matt Redman, Casting Crowns or Passion. I pray that the words he's singing now are being embedded into his soul, working their way into his spirit and will always find a home in his heart.
One of our favorite songs to sing-along with in the car is God's Not Dead by the Newsboys.
Our favorite verse "my God's not dead, He's surely alive. He's living on the inside, roaring like a lion."
Lord, bless his heart, hearing Gabe sing that line while dancing along in his car seat is like a balm to my soul. Because no matter what is happening here and now; no matter what the media and politicians tell you - God is alive and working here on earth. I know it, Gabe knows it and I'm pretty sure Gabe is going to let everyone know it one day!
And just so you know, Gabe's sweetness multiplies by a hundred when he roars like a lion after that verse.
