Pippa’s Poetic Debut

As we were driving home from the craft store today, Pippa heard the words “When my heart’s broken…” in one of our Sovereign Grace Kids songs, and she asked me to turn the music down.  She had something to say.

Pippa: I want to say something, but I need to think for a minute, but leave the music down…

(And then:)

When my heart breaks in two,

And I don’t know what to do,

My Savior will make me a new heart all the way through.

(The last line was tweaked slightly when we wrote it down later, her revisions, not mine.)

Is that a good one, Mommy?

Me: (just about crying) Yep, that’s a good one.

  1. I’m not surprised you cried! Where have all those years gone. It feels like only yesterday she was the cutest little newborn with a slightly squished nose.
