song 26: i'm like a fountain

this morning Noah and i both woke up with this little ditty that Moses wrote in our heads, and felt like it should be today's sunday song. Noah recently rediscovered this gem from February 2017 in a voice memo on his phone. apparently Moses had come up with all the words and had the first spark of an idea for the melody, which Noah ran with...

he is indeed a fountain: a fountain of joy, a fountain of hope, a fountain of love, and a fountain of wisdom! the other day in a super stressed out moment in the midst of yet another marathon day spent putting one fire out after another, i voiced something that felt true in the moment which i knew in my heart was not truth. Moses, looking very intently at me in the rear view mirror, quietly said, "if you tell me things that aren't true, i'm going to believe you." of course i stopped the car and made my way to the back to ask him to forgive me, and to speak to him what is true, despite all feelings and appearances...

then the next day, he was standing by door waiting for us to get it together so we could head out, and he declared, "the enemy's two big lies are [counts on fingers]:
1. fear is your guide; and
2. there's no such thing as being safe."

... and then he dropped the mic and walked off stage. just kidding. he just stood there with this goofy grin on his face like he was so proud of himself! he oh so often says things that seriously blow our minds, and are like the word of the hour for where we're at, and are exactly what we need to hear.

he sure keeps us on our toes! he's such a treasure and we are so delighted to be able to capture these moments and share them with all y'all. we love his heart, his way with words, his passion for all things lego and/or super hero, his knack for truth-telling, and even his uncanny ability to sleep in when we have to get up and to wake early when we get to sleep in. he is a fountain of giggles, a fountain of words, a fountain of tears, a fountain of kisses, and a fountain of surprisingly strong and well-reasoned opinions for someone of merely six!

i’m like a fountain
i’m like a fountain
i can’t explain it
i’m like a fountain

i’m like a fountain
i’m like a fountain
i can’t contain it
i’m like a fountain

cupcakes are tasty
God is tastier...
and i live for God
always and forever...

i’m like a fountain...

walls are hard
God is stronger...

i’m like a fountain...

the universe is giant
God’s giant most of all

i’m like a fountain...

flowers are thirsty
we are thirstier...

i’m like a fountain...
