Jesus Loves Me

I used to sing this song to Gabrielle all the time. When she was 8-10 months old, her brain was continuously seizing and we were waiting to find out if Gabby was a surgical candidate. I would hold her in my arms much of the day, rocking her tiny body, and looking into those big blue eyes. I would begin to sing Jesus Loves Me only I would change the words to Jesus Loves You. Immediately tears would fill my eyes as I reminded my daughter despite all the suffering she was presently enduring Jesus did love her. Truthfully, I was reminding myself. I was convincing myself that a loving God could allow such painful struggles.

Three surgeries and countless seizures later Gabrielle has begun to sing the very same song to me.

Jesus loves me! this I know,
For the Bible tells me so.
Little ones to Him belong;
they are weak but He is strong.

Yes, Jesus loves me!
Yes, Jesus loves me!
Yes, Jesus loves me!
The Bible tells me so.



  1. That is very sweet, and yes Jesus loves her.
