Overalls Victorious!

Just what do we teach our children?!? It's not always what we think! While dressing Isaiah this morning he sang a piece of the hymn, Come Thou Almighty King, which we taught him last month. But instead of "over all victorious", his version has "Overalls, victorious!"

This isn't the first time we've been surprised with our children's hymnody. I think it was our oldest who until recently substituted "Blessed Tennessee" for "Blessed Trinity" in Holy, Holy, Holy.

Here he is in his "Overalls Victorious"

My children caught a glimpse of your little darling and thought it was a picture of our "7 of 7"!

We've mangled a few hymns in our day also. What's wrong with blessing Tennesse?!

My children sing "Justified, you declare me rightous. Justified by the blood of the lamb" at the top of their lungs while swinging on the swing set.

They had no idea what they were singing until yesterday when we were going through the children's catechism and got to the definition of justification.

Their eyes got really big and 7 of 7 started singing the song under his breath. It was one of those moments that makes your heart melt.

We are paving the way, although sometimes it is hard to see the paths we are clearing through the widerness.
