Good Night

So that we don’t forget….

We know that as the kids get older we may not remember all of the songs and prayers that we had for them. Every night that Jim is home he puts all of the kids to bed. When Jake was little he made up his own version to Hush Little Baby and it was one of the only things that would calm Jake down when he started crying. We don’t sing it anymore but we don’t want to forget. Also, now that the boys share a room prayer time is a little different but listed below are the prayers that Jim prayed over them every night for several years. We may not pray the exact same prayers each night now, but we don’t want to forget. Judd, Anna Kate and Sadie don’t have full length songs like Jake but we do have silly little rhymes that we sing for them. Of course, they are just rhymes that don’t make sense but we don’t want to forget….

Jake
Hush little baby don’t say a word
Hush little baby don’t say a word
Daddy’ll buy you a poster of Larry Bird
If that poster gets ripped up
Daddy’ll buy you a brand new labrador pup
If that puppy runs away
Daddy’ll buy you a nice shiny Chevrolet
If that Chevrolet gets hit
Daddy’ll buy you a brand new catchers mitt
If that catchers mitt goes bad
Daddy’ll buy you a Georgia Bulldogs hat
If that Georgia hat don’t work
Daddy and momma will both be broke

Mommy and daddy love you very much, and we pray that you will be a little boy that listens and obeys the first time with a happy heart, that loves his brothers and sisters, but loves Jesus most of all. And mommy and daddy pray that you will accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior at a very young age and that you’ll live for Him all your life.

Judd
Judson Hunter, NFL punter, has a girlfriend, doesn’t want her

Mommy and daddy love you very much, Jake loves you, Anna Kate love you, but Jesus loves you most of all. So much that He died on the cross for your sins and wants to have a relationship with you. And mommy and daddy pray that you’ll accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior at a very young age and that you’ll live for Him all your life.

Anna Kate
Anna Kate, Anna Kate, Anna Kate we think you’re great. We couldn’t wait for you to come, Anna Kate we think you’re great.

Mommy and daddy think you’re precious, Jake and Judd think you’re great, but Jesus thinks you’re special. So special, that He died on the cross for your sins and wants to have a relationship with you. And mommy and daddy pray that you’ll accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior at a very young age and that you’ll live for Him all your life.

Sadie
Sadie, Sadie, what a pretty lady. Maybe, maybe, you can be my baby.
