They shall come rejoicing…

We have one of those quirky kids’ Bible songs CD’s…you know the kind…lots of oldies but goodies and some strange ones, too. For example, it has “The Wheels on the Bus” only in this version the driver says “Go to church” instead of “Move on back”, etc. It kind of makes mothers wish they had earplugs, but it keeps preschoolers entertained. So, anyway, Elise was listening to this CD in the van on our way to Costco this morning. The song “Bringing in the Sheaves” came on (it’s the one they always sang on Little House on the Prairie) and she was singing along happily…

“Bringing in the sheaves, bringing in the sheaves
They shall come rejoicing, bringing in the sheaves”

As the song ends, she says, “Wow. They must really love CHEESE!”

It took me approximately 4.7 seconds to figure out that she was talking about those people in the song, coming rejoicing, bringing in the cheese.

Oh, Elise. You are tooooo funny.

And Happy Birthday today to my brother-in-law, whose wedding I bawled like a baby at simply because the whole thing was so beautiful and because he and his wife were and are so in love. He’s a great husband, dad, brother, and uncle and we can’t wait to see him soon! Here he is this past summer with all my kids and his kids piled on him. We love that guy!
