It's finally here!

Many years ago, there was a childrens CD called "Songs from the Beginners Bible." Jodi Benson, who played the Little Mermaid, sang the songs and since Cinderella was a big LM fan, I bought it for her. Each song is about a bible story. I fell in love with one of the songs and had it sung for The Boy's baby dedication. It is called "Here in My Heart" and it is Mary singing to baby Jesus. So, for the final entry in Jona-palooza 2008, here are the words to the song, dedicated to my "baby." (and pardon this mama's tears.)




I don't want to kiss you good night
I'll just keep on holding you tight
'Cause baby I know
You'll change and you'll grow
You'll get bigger with each morning light
I know that the sky's full of stars
And dreams call your name from afar
I'm anxious to see
All you're gonna be
But I'm sure gonna miss who you are
But I'll keep you right here in my heart
And I'll memorize each little part
'Cause one day you'll go
And I'll miss you so
But I'll keep you right here in my heart
Each tooth that you'll gain or you'll lose
And each time you'll need bigger shoes
Each step that you take
Will be further away
But to stop you is not what I'd choose
These fingers that curl round my hand
Must do things that no others can
I know you're not mine
But God's own design
And I want you to follow his plan
But I'll keep you right here in my heart
And I'll memorize each little part
'Cause one day you'll go
And I'll miss you so
But I'll keep you right here in my heart.
