When I am with YOU

big heart little minds

Had to share this lullaby with you by JJ Heller:  When I’m With You

I included a piece of the lyrics below.  It is such a celebration of loving little ones.  I painted this piece for teachers this fall, but really it is for anyone who shapes a child–whether it be on a daily basis, on weekends, on rare visits, or merely for a season.  We have to be open to letting our hearts swell for these babies (and I mean all ages).  I still call on my mommy and daddy for help and love when my mind feels little and I need their big love.  So sit back, take a listen, and think about the littles you are shaping, and all those who shaped you.

When I hold you in my arms, Love
Something changes
It’s the strangest feeling
The things that used to matter
They don’t matter to me
When I see you
And you’re smiling
How my heart aches
So full it is about to break
You make me believe in love

I could never count all the ways
That you change me, Baby
Every day the sky is a deeper shade of blue
When I’m with you
When I hear you, and you’re crying
It resonates, Dear
In a place I didn’t know was there
You make me believe in love

Go, Tell, and make disciples of all nations--spread the good news.
