A Song Dedicated to My Little Loves

Standard

There is a song that I adore. It’s a song on one of Sydney’s CDs, Slugs, Bugs, and Lullabies by Andrew Peterson & Randall Goodgame. It’s such a sweet and funny CD. I highly recommend it to anyone with kids. The song titled You Can Always Come Home has captured my heart in regards to my little loves. These are the lyrics:

I love you today and I love you tomorrow
I love you as deep as the sea
I love you in joy and I love you in sorrow
You can always come home to me

There once was a man who found him a treasure
Buried out under a tree
He sold all he had just to own it forever
The treasure is you, you see

I love you today and I love you tomorrow
I love you as deep as the sea
I love you in joy and I love you in sorrow
You can always come home to me

There once were some sheep safe on the farm
And one little lamb got loose
The shepherd went out and carried it home
That little lamb is you

I love you today and I love you tomorrow
I love you as deep as the sea
I love you in joy and I love you in sorrow
You can always come home to me

I hope as my children grow up, they will know that this is so true. Although I want them to grow up and stand on their own two feet, my heart, house, and arms are always open. That will never change.

How amazing is it that as we look at our children, we can see a glimpse of what God sees when He looks at us? Such perspective on unconditional love. To know that this song could be sung from Him to me humbles me in a way that I have never known before being a mommy. Now I’m amazed at how much He cares, even in the small things.
