Mama's Heart: Who's counting...

Do you know the old Sunday School song..."Twelve men went to spy on Canaan?"  It's based on Numbers 13 and 14...
Twelve men went to spy on Canaan, 
Ten were bad and two were good. 
What did they see when they spied on Canaan? 
Ten were bad and two were good.
Some saw the giants strong and tall
Some saw grapes in clusters fall
Some saw that God was in it all
‘Cause ten were bad and two were good.
My Sweet Boobahs love this song.  With each verse you go a little bit faster....until we're all in a giggling heap.  But, as I titled this post...not really thinking to give it spiritual emphasis.... other than to encourage other Mama's to teach Biblical truths via song...

It occurred to me...Who's counting...God is.  Will He find me seeing the grapes or the giants?  Will I be counted as one who honors God and receives His reward...or will He see my lack of trust and rebellion?

Col. 1:28-29, "Him we proclaim, warning everyone and teaching everyone with all wisdom, that we may present everyone mature in Christ. For this I toil, struggling with all his energy that he powerfully works within me."

I LOVE kids them! And the best part...I don't know this one? How can this be? I'm going to have to see if I can find this on youTube to hear it...unless, of course, you're going to volunteer to video yourself singing it and post it on your blog. :)
