"Listen to the love song that I am continually singing to you. I take great delight in you." (78)
Think about God rejoicing over you "with singing." (Zeph.3:17) Even if I knew God was just simply humming over me, it would be THRILLING!
This reminds me of all the silly little songs Joe and I sang to our boys when they were growing up. We crafted on-the-spot songs about tying your shoes, brushing your teeth, feeding the dog, taking out the trash, going to church, and so many other life experiences. Here's one song we made up and sang often, especially when the boys would want to snuggle in-between us:
You're the crunchy peanut butter, You're the melted Velveeta;
You're the slice of Salomi, You're the Mayo and Tuna;
You're the slice of Life among us, in the middle of it all.
And we thank the Lord, He gave you to us all."
(Hmmmm, I guess...You'd have to "be there" to really enjoy it!)
When they had to memorize scripture verses or the books of the Bible for Kids Club, we'd make up a tune to sing the words to... getting it in their heads...and deep into their hearts!
Now, we do the same with our grandkids (careful to spare the older ones from too much embarrassment over our corny on-the-spot songs!)
What could we do today to give God something to sing about? Something to smile about? He wants to be...
Singing over You...dmc
