Lullabies

When we're putting Kessa to sleep, she often does better if we sing her a song. And like a good LDS couple, the vast majority of the children's songs we know are primary songs and church hymns. When you sing a song over and over like that, you start to notice things you'd never picked up on before.

For example, did you know that the song "Our Savior's Love" has one verse about each member of the Godhead, specifically how that person helps us gain exaltation? Yeah, I had no idea. I just figured it was a nice song with poetic lyrics about how much Christ loves us and a great melody.

Kinda interesting how much we don't pay attention.

SO true. I sing a bizilion hymns and primary songs a day... although I have my favorites. If the Savior Stood Beside Me now runs through my head constantly. I've come to realize why the brethren have suggested on many occasions that we memorize hymns to help clean our thoughts!
