Restoration - Conversations while listening to music

Above is a link to the song I am talking about.

Today while driving Molly and I had a conversation that I did not know she was capable of.  I know she is smarter than I give her credit for but she is my baby.  She is so much more like Jon in that she really likes about what she is saying and processes a lot before stating things out loud.  So we rotate music from "kid" music to "mommy" music because I know it brings them joy to sing twinkle twinkle and other kid friendly songs but I can only take so much of it.  We were listening to the World Mandate 2011 track from our church back in Waco when they sing the line - you take my weeping and turn it into laughing.  She then asks me is that about Jesus making it so we don't cry when we leave friends like daddy helped me laugh the other day when I was sad.  It took me a minute to realize why she was asking this then I realized she was actually listening to the song and was processing what it means.  And then we got to have a good 30 second conversation before she moved on but I have been stuck for the past hour thinking about how much she takes in understands!

wow, that's awesome. Mariah is the same way, I am shocked by how much M takes in (and sometimes frightened :) ). I love the run group to, what great community!
