    Share your favorite words and explain them please! It can be a song, a poem, a verse, or something you wrote.

    I'm sitting here listening to an album of songs I used to sing to my babies constantly...started when they were newborn, and they still remember them. They each had a special song and as I was just listening to Anna's, the lyrics struck me as absolutely beautiful. (they all are, but this was really exceptionally done imo!) I picked this one for her because it just FIT. Because of her race, I was amazed by the blond streaks of hair. Because of her health, I constantly prayed she would get comfort from our Father and that she would be safe from pain.

    My favorite phrase in this is "kissed by the golden stars and moon." I totally love that sentence! It makes for a very pretty word picture.

    Here's the whole song:

    Well I love my baby
    sweet and fair
    you've got the sky in your eye
    the sun in your hair
    I rock you to sleep most every night
    and sing you this song
    while i hold you tight

    Sleep my baby
    the angels keep you from harm
    and your Father above
    cradles you in his love
    safe and warm
    sleep my baby
    the angels keep you from harm

    My baby
    you'll be sleepin' soon
    kissed by the golden stars and moon
    I have just one wish for you
    may your every dream come true
