If you haven’t heard, Steven Curtis Chapman’s 5 year old daughter was accidentally run over and killed on May 21. Please be in prayer for this family.
Not long ago, after trying to rush through a bath time with his young daughters, he wrote a song called “Cinderella”. You can hear the song by clicking here. Please listen after the song finishes as Steven tells why he wrote the song.
We have just a short moment in time with our children so “make the most of every opportunity you have for doing good.” (Ephesians 5:16)
Jesus set the example for valuing time spent with children: Then Jesus took the children into his arms and placed his hands on their heads and blessed them. (Mark 10:16) But Jesus said, “Let the children come to me. Don’t stop them! For the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to such as these.” Matthew 19:14
I pray for you lots of time to snuggle and read with your little ones, hours of family playtime, and many opportunities to teach your children.

So much to do – I have not time
To listen now, I say,
And hurry back to the chores
That always fills my day.
No time to listen? A small voice
Seemed to whisper in my ear…
Soon your little ones will be gone
And you’ll wish to hold them near.
I left my broom – the chores undone
And found them under the apple tree.
I held them close and listened while
Their love and we built a memory.
