God Sang The Itsy Bitsy Spider – In Chinese!

Precious was the moment when God sang ‘The Itsy Bitsy Spider’ through Grace.  How wonderfully privileged I am to be chosen to sing along.
Today the walls were pressing in on me, so I took my book and headed to Starbucks.  With a beautiful blue sky overhead and a light breeze blowing, it was a perfect night to sit outside.  I opened my book and whispered a prayer for God to lift the weights that were pressing on my mind and heart.

Itsy Bitsy Spider

God so sweetly flooded my world with color through a 2 1/2-year-old vessel, Beautiful Grace.  She’s a sweet little girl who can only speak Chinese – I cannot – but Grace told me the most amazing stories while she smiled and danced before me.  Then suddenly our languages sounded as one when I notice her hands begin to make a spider crawl up a water spout.  Grace’s smile became contagious and we giggled as we sang together with hands in motion, ‘The Itsy Bitsy Spider’.  The world wasn’t so heavy anymore.
Have you ever got to sing with Grace?
