Since moving in with my two incredible roommates, Allie and Katie, we've enjoyed a special tradition together. Almost every night, after the friends go home and the laughter and giggles are done, Katie and I gather in Allie's room for a special treat. We all coozie up in Allie's bed as she sings us sweet lullabies. Church hymns actually.
If you know Allie, you might be laughing right about now. And for those of you who don't, let me clue you in. Allie doesn't sing. At all. At church she can hardly carry a tune. But bless her heart, when we all snuggle up at night the most sweet little melodious and childlike voice simply quiets us.
And she sings the most beautiful things. Just as we've about drifted off, she always ends with her Grand Finale, "Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing." It's a real crowd pleaser. I don't know how she does it, but she always makes my heart smile.
Recently, the three of us came across this amazing video composed of still pictures depicting the life of Christ, set to the most beautiful version you've ever heard of "Come Thou Fount." Take a moment to watch and listen by clicking HERE. And as you do, think of little Allie, Katie, and me all snuggled up together in the dark. Enjoy!
