I have enjoyed sharing what we’ve been doing with our garden. My little girls and I have had so much fun observing and learning about seeds and plants. Isn’t it just amazing how different each seed is and that from one seed grows a specific plant?
I’ve felt an urgency --- a realization that I only have a limited amount of time with my kids before they are out from under my wing. I’m finding it’s true---kids grow up fast! What kind of seeds do I want to be planting in my children?
I want to be planting the Word of God in their hearts.
I know many of you might be familiar with Seeds Family Worship. They help me plant the Word of God into my kids’ hearts and minds through music. If you haven’t heard of them, I encourage you to check them out. Each song is taken straight from God's own Word using the ESV translation. Recently their newest cd, Seeds of Character, was placed in my van cd player (I have a captive audience then—lol!) I was looking forward to listening along with my children.
This volume contains the following songs:
- More Than Conquerors (Romans 8:37)
- The Wages and The Gift (Romans 3:23 & 6:23)
- The Life (John 14:6, I John 5:11-12)
- The Fruit (Galatians 5:16 & 22)
- Delight (Psalm 1)
- Teach Them (Deuteronomy 6:4-7)
- The Perfect Example (John 13:12-17)
- Children and Fathers (Ephesians 6:1-4)
- Put On Love (Colossians 3:12 & 14a)
- The Character Song (Romans 5:1-5)
- Give Thanks (Psalm 105:1-5)
- The Only Way (The New Testament Song)
One day my 4yr. old was arguing with my 12yr. old saying that “testamoment” was a real word and my 12yr. old was saying it wasn’t. I had no clue what was going on or where my 4yr. old came up with that word. Then she said, “Mom, it’s from that song ‘This is the testamoment, that God gave us eternal life-And this life is in His son.” As she sang that song (#3 on the list) my heart smiled. So she misunderstood one word, but she knew the verse! Not only did she know that song, but out of all my kids, she has most of this cd already memorized. She loves it!
My family appreciates that SEEDS songs appeal to all age-ranges. Both my 2yr. old and 12 yr. old enjoy listening to the same songs. I love that SEEDS is serious about planting seeds. Each package has 2 CDs in it, so you can keep one and give one away. How cool is that? I am thrilled to add this newest CD to our collection.
