(Photo from our fun trip to Hermosa Beach two weeks ago).
While Jasper and I were out running errands this afternoon we were listening to some Primary songs that we're trying to learn for our upcoming Sacrament Meeting presentation on October 23rd.
One of the lines from the song "I Will Follow God's Plan for Me" says: "I will be happy on earth."
After Jasper heard that and said, "Mom, I want to be happy on earth."
It was so sweet and sincere. I thought, "I want to be happy on earth too!" It always catches me off guard when I realize that Jasper is really listening to every word of the song lyrics AND thinking about their meaning.
I asked him what he needed to do to be happy on earth and said, "I need to make good choices and not go in time out."
I'm grateful to be Jasper's mom and to constantly be reminded to be more like a little child.
Here's the link to listen to and/or download the song for free.
And here's the link for all of the songs we are learning for the presentation.
I Will Follow God's Plan for Me
My life is a gift; my life has a plan.
My life has a purpose; in heaven it began.
My choice was to come to this lovely home on earth
And seek for God’s light to direct me from birth.
I will follow God’s plan for me,
Holding fast to his word and his love.
I will work, and I will pray;
I will always walk in his way.
Then I will be happy on earth
And in my home above.
