Happy Birthday Jesus (a belated story)

One of Sarah's favorite Christmas songs is by the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir called, "Happy Birthday Jesus." I think one of the reasons she likes it so much is because it's sung by children. It's a beautiful song and I downloaded it to my ipod for us to listen to.

A few weeks ago, Sarah asked me to find that song for her and I did. She was holding the ipod (love that it has a built in speaker) and I was brushing her hair and getting her ready to go to her dance lesson.

While I was brushing her hair, she asked me, "Mommy? What side of my chest is my heart, the right or left?"

I reached over her shoulder and showed her on her left where her heart is, "It's right here, Honey, on your left."

She took the ipod and put it on her chest over her heart.
I smiled and asked, "Sarah? Are you putting the ipod on your heart so that Jesus can hear it better?"

She smiled so big, "Yes Mommy, so He can hear them sing Happy Birthday!"
