Yesterday was my wards Primary Program. Can I just say that I'm pretty sure all of the cutest LDS kids in Arizona are in my ward? because, I'm pretty sure that's true! Primary Program day is probably my favorite day of the year when it comes to Sacrament meeting!
So, the program starts out with one of the most adorable children in the world (one of my old nursery kids, who's a Sunbeam now), Halle Sanders, singing the first verse, minus the chorus, to "I Am A Child of God". There was a little narration as the piano plays in the background, and then one of my other old nursery kids, Keaton Sanchez, gets up and sings the 2nd verse, minus the chorus. (It was really cute tho...his mom is in the Primary Presidency and she was sitting by the podium throughout the program in case anyone needed help, and when Keaton looked at her, he starts shaking his head really furiously like he's not going to sing...but then he just turns his head and starts! it was so funny!). 2 other children do the same thing for the 3rd and 4th verse (which i didn't know existed, but maybe was just done for the programs?).
On a more serious note, I honestly have never felt the Spirit that strong with that song before. But, hearing these tiny little children singing it really hit home to me...these kids REALLY GET IT! They feel and know that they are literal children of Heavenly father. These children are SO PRECIOUS to our Heavenly Father, and that makes me feel very special to think that He is entrusting me, who's totally not worthy of any of His love and affection, with one of his special children. I love my Heavenly Father so much and I'm so grateful to get to see His light through the eyes of little childen!
